Birkenstocks.

DIY.

And Sunday IKEA trips, of course.

Sandi Toksvig.

She was the first lesbian in the UK to come out while in the public eye and was told she’d never work in telly again, and we think that’s the dictionary definition of proving someone wrong.

Robyn, ‘Dancing on My Own’.

Having a lot of feelings; processing.

Harry Styles.

Also: Timothée Chalamet, but it seemed too much to have two men on the list so we’ve combined them into one lesbian icon.

Short nails on ONE hand ✌.

Corduroy.

Cats.

Flannel.

Lucy and Yak dungarees.

Are you even a lesbian if you don’t own at least one pair?

Megan Rapinoe.

Recycling.

Giving each other stick and pokes.

Stick and poke tattoos are a permanent life decision you can make for free without leaving the house. What better way to show your lifelong commitment to each other after just two weeks?

Crafts.

The L Word.

Crystals.

Staying friends with exes.
