Until recent years, lesbians on Instagram have been notoriously underrepresented. But thankfully, that’s no longer the case, and there are countless inspiring lesbians on the platform, sharing their story and making every queer girls’ world a better and more accepting place.
We always wonder what it might have been like growing up had we had a platform such as Instagram. Neither of us had any LGBT+ influence in our lives, which lead to a lot of confusion regarding our sexuality. While, of course, social media has its downsides, I think it’s wonderful that members of the LGBT+ community have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals.
When we started our lesbian couple Instagram account, it wasn’t our intention to get a ton of followers. But we realised how important it is to be visible on the platform, and play our part in ‘normalising‘ same-sex relationships. If we can inspire just one person to live their truest, most authentic life, then that to us, means the world.
Almost three years down the line, and we could never have imagined having built such a beautiful and supportive community. We are continuously moved, inspired, and empowered, and the power of social media is a truly incredible thing.
So let’s get to it. Here are 50 Lesbian Instagram Accounts you need to be following right now.

Inspiring Lesbian Couples on Instagram
Gabi and Shanna – @27travels
We’re Gabi and Shanna, a lesbian travel couple based in Brooklyn, NY. Early on in our relationship, we started to realize that we both loved travelling. Since Gabi is a photographer and Shanna is a videographer and video editor, we made 27 Travels as our creative outlet. It started as an Instagram account where we would document our trips and adventures. We also started to realize how little information exists for LGBTQ+ travellers and we wanted to help change that.
SO WHY 27? No, it’s not our ages, or the number of countries we’ve visited, or how many trips we’ve taken. It’s the date of our anniversary! The number 27 means a lot to us and it always reminds us that every trip we take we learn more and more about ourselves, our relationship, and the world we inhabit. That’s also what we want to convey through 27 Travels. Travelling for us isn’t just about ticking destinations and activities off a list, it’s about growing, learning, and becoming more and more open-minded by experiencing new and different cultures from all over the planet.
We hope to inspire others to explore more of the world around them, and to spread the message that travel is inclusive to everyone no matter your gender or who you love. If you are following our page you can expect to find travels, adventure, love, positivity, and loads of colour and fun!
This is where you can find us:

Alayna & Taryn – @aretheysisters
Alayna & Taryn are an enGAYged Black couple from Washington DC, and they are proud to be repping the underrepresented.
They aim not only to normalise same-sex relationships but understand how important it is as queer women of colour to be visible on social media.
Alayna & Taryn chose their handle @aretheysisters after getting asked if they were sisters everywhere they went. They are tired of those who can’t understand the concept of a relationship that doesn’t involve a man.
I think we can all relate to that, can’t we ladies?

Chris and Alex – @burritoandtortilla
We are a queer couple of gals living a hop and a skip from NYC in Jersey City, NJ. We both work in the television industry, and boy do we have some crazy stories because of it! When we aren’t working, we’re travelling – and more often than not, experiencing a few mishaps along the way. People always ask for our recommendations after we visit a new place, and nothing makes us happier than sharing them!
Our goal is to live a life that is rich in experiences, memories, and plenty of food. We share our lives online because we strive to be the visibility and representation we needed when we were younger. Above all, we want to encourage everyone to experience different places, peoples, and cultures because empathy is the key to dismantling prejudice.
Feel free to follow our fun!

Charl and Aislinn – @charlsummersuk & @aislinnok
Instagram to me is an escape from reality, growing up in an environment that didn’t support me being a lesbian, I turned online and created my own spaces to feel safe within.
I mainly use Instagram to share LGBTQI+ content, which can be found on Lestalk_Podcast, Unite_Uk1 and Charlsummersuk.
Via the Lestalk Podcast, we discuss all things lesbian / queer womxn orientated to normalise many discussions that have become taboo. Whereas on Unite UK, it’s an Online LGBTQI+ platform for all members to share their voice.
On my personal page, it’s a journey of understanding, acceptance and a showcase reel of my relationship. It’s also space where I can share with the world who this crazy lesbian with the eyebrow slit is.
Whilst I have many platforms, I use them to spread the same authentic message: always choose to be you.
Heather and Kelsey – @heathermyriahpearson @kelseystacypearson

Paula and Elin – @travel_therainbow
We are Paula and Elin, a Finnish and Swedish couple who met during our travels in Australia in 2017 and we’ve been travelling together since then. We started our Instagram 1,5 years ago when we thought it would be fun to document our travels and to start taking more photos together.
Through our Instagram, we share our travels, but we also talk about love and sustainable lifestyle. We want to bring out more LGBTQ+ visibility and hope to normalise being an LGBTQ+ person – that should never be a restrain for anyone to pursue their dreams and goals!
We spend a lot of time in nature and we hope to give tips on how to travel and live more sustainable so that our planet and wildlife would stay beautiful and healthy. It’s really important for us to keep our account real, so our texts come from our hearts and we want to show that life is not always those perfect moments – even though social media might sometimes make it seem like it.
We have a blog traveltherainbowblog.com focusing on the same topics as our Instagram. We’re currently making some changes in there to make it the best guide for you it can be!
Follow Paula and Elin on Instagram here: @travel_therainbow

Jazmyn and Crystal – @vanwives
We are Jazmyn and Crystal – better known as Vanwives. We travel around the world in our tiny home on wheels, a 2006 Mercedes Sprinter van with our two Australian Shepherd dogs Bella and Izzy. Both of us outfitted the van ourselves. It started as an empty shell and now the van is our full-time home. We’re currently on an adventure of a lifetime! We’re driving from our home in Canada to the tip of Argentina (on hold).
The best part about living in the van is being able to travel to foreign countries, take the path less travelled, immerse ourselves in each place we visit and share it with you! We document our alternative lifestyle and travels on YouTube & Instagram. We hope to show the countries we visit in a different perspective from that of the mainstream media and inspire others to see the world.
You can follow our journey here:
Steph and Ells – @wearewanderingtravel
We’ve been together for over 3 years now but have known each other since 2009. For a majority of our relationship we have travelled the world and even lived in New Zealand for one year in our little campervan, Patch. Since returning home to the UK last year, we have bought an LDV Convoy minibus to convert into a campervan.
We also started our own online travel business. We became qualified and trained as Independent Travel Agents and hope to encourage you all to make greener choices when travelling and be more sustainable. Next year, you’ll see us gallivanting around Europe in our mini-home-on-wheels, but for now, you can watch us build our campervan and explore the UK and surrounding islands.

Beautiful Lesbian Families on Instagram
Ryan and Ryan – @its.the_ryans
We are The Ryans’! Yes, Ryan is our first name not our last. We are an engaged strong, black LGBTQ couple who’s personal mission is “Making Abnormal, Normal”. We decided to share our lives on social media to shine a light on how normal our relationship actually is even though society thinks differently. We believe that we are just as normal as the next heterosexual couple and wear our label proud and out loud.
Representation is very important to us, so we strive to be the best version of our community, both black & lesbian, and use our platform to bring visibility to both communities. We treat our sexuality and race as our brand, it’s who we are. We won’t do anything to tarnish our brand but will do everything to help amplify the voices of the invisible, in hopes of change in the future. We’ve been together for 7 years and are the mothers to two beautiful boys!

They share all things love, relationships, Mum life, cooking, recipes and more on their Instagram. And while their captions are mostly in Spanish, their stunning photography tells the story just perfectly. Give them a follow, and you can thank us later!
Raff and Micaela – @raffinee
People often want to know who is who so before I get into our story, that’s Micaela on the right and, the left is me, Raffinee.
Micaela and I attended the same University. We both majored in Biology but ended up meeting through mutual friends. She was a grade above me, but since we both played sports, we had a similar circle of friends. I always had a crush on her, (she was a total soccer star!) but we didn’t end up dating until a few years post-college while Micaela was finishing up her surgical residency interviews.
Flash forward a few years and now we live in the Bay Area! We have three children, our oldest Mateo and our twins Luca and Lola. We used the same sperm donor for all our children! Micaela carried Mateo and I carried the twins.
Having children as a lesbian couple was definitely a journey and I’m passionate about helping anyone who wants to do that- so please feel free to reach out!
The Ferrells – @2_momcrew
By far, one of the most inspirational families on Instagram, we love following the journey of Sierra, Bri, and their adorable son Oliver.
Instagram is an excellent platform for raising awareness, and this family does a wonderful job in not only normalising autism but helping us to understand what it means to have an autistic child.
We love how open and honest they are about their experiences, and I have no doubt you too, will be inspired by their story.
You can follow The Ferrells on Instagram here: @2_momcrew

Another lesbian Instagram account I love following for style inspiration is @danniparr. Danni lives in Melbourne, Australia, which is one of my favourite cities in the world.
Her page is all about sun, sea and fashion. She has that whole sexy surfer chick look going on, and I seriously crush over her flawless matching outfits.

Madison Paige – @madspaige
Madison Paige is a world-famous androgynous model and acoustic musician. She actually bears a striking resemblance to Ruby Rose who’s later on our list, so it’s no wonder why she’s shot to Insta-fame.
While Mads Paige doesn’t stand for much in particular, there’s no denying she’s easy on the eye. Her style is incredible, and she’s always involved in some uber-cool photo shoots. For style and photography inspirations, Mads is definitely worth a follow!
You can follow Madison Paige here: @madspaige

Meg Cale is a queer gal with expensive dreams and a whole lot of hustle. Again, we’ve been following Meg for quite a while, and she’s a real inspiration to the queer community.

You can follow Meg’s adventures around the world on Instagram here: @megteneyck.
Millie Poutama – @mx.millie
When it comes to lesbian influencers on Instagram, Millie is one of our favourites. This blonde bombshell is a foster mum and feminist living with endometriosis, and it’s impossible not to be inspired by her journey through life.
Millie is married to Jessi James, and they share awesome couple photos on their couple account @jessi_and_millie. The beautiful pair married in 2019 and their wedding was actual goals.
Nowadays, they are slaying it as Foster Mums, and their story is equally compelling as it is heartwarming.

Famous Lesbian Couples on Instagram
Ashlyn Harris – @ashlynharris24

Follow Ashlyn & her wife for style inspiration and LGBTQ representation.

Cara Delevigne – @caradelevigne
I’m sure this famous lesbian needs little introduction. However, just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, Cara Delevigne is a renowned fashion model from the UK.
As well as working with top designer brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Chanel, Cara has also starred in a few movies. Her most notable roles were in Paper Planes and Suicide Squad.
It’s unclear whether Cara is in-fact a lesbian or bi-sexual, but she has had some high profile girlfriends. Most recently she was going out with @ashleybenson of Pretty Little Liars. But sadly, it’s rumoured the relationship is no more.
You can follow Cara on Instagram here: @caradelevigne
Cynthia Nixon – @cynthiaenixon
Cynthia Nixon is our favourite redhead from our favourite comedy sitcom, Sex and the City. She is married to Christine Marinoni, and together they have an adorable son called Max.
Since meeting her wife in 2004, Cynthia’s sexuality has been at the forefront of the media. She famously said “I don’t pull out the ‘bisexual’ word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.” and “I’m just a woman in love with another woman.”
In 2018 Cynthia ran for governor of New York, and I find her an incredibly inspiring woman all round. Her video “Be a Lady” combatting gender discrimination went viral on Instagram and is one you have to watch.
You can follow Cynthia on Instagram here: @cynthiaenixon
Ellen De Generes – @ellendegeneres
Ellen DeGeneres is an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, and producer. You’ll most likely be familiar with her daytime talk show The Ellen Degeneres Show.
Of course, Ellen is no stranger to the limelight, albeit recently it’s not been exactly positive. Rumours of toxic work environments on her show are spreading like wildfire; however, don’t be too quick to trust what you hear in the media.
In our eyes, Ellen is a pioneer when it comes to LGBT+ equality. She came out to Time Magazine in 1977 when it wasn’t exactly ‘cool’ to be gay. She’s gone on to be one of the most famous lesbians in the world and is married to the beautiful Portia DeRossi.
You can follow Ellen on Instagram here: @ellendegeneres

Our next celebrity lesbian Instagram account is the talented Ellen Page. Ellen is a Canadian actress and producer, starring as the lead role in the fantastic coming-of-age movie Juno, as well as X-men, Inception, and Freeheld (a lesbian film).
Despite fears that it would damage her career, Ellen came out during a Human Rights conference in 2014 saying “I’m here today because I am gay, and because maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time.”
We love following Ellen on Instagram as not only is she extremely cute, but she’s a huge activist for human rights. She married her wife Emma Portner in 2017.
You can follow Ellen on Instagram here: @ellenpage
Kate Moenning – @kateomoennig
Kate Moenning is an actress from the United States, best known for her role as sexy Shane McCutcheon in the L Word.
Surprising to some, Kate didn’t know she was a lesbian until she joined the show. It was only while playing the part as the androgynous heartthrob that she figured that she might be into girls.
As it turns out, that was to be her fate, as she is now married to a Brazilian musician named Ana Rezende.
On Instagram, Kate shares snippets of her personal life, behind the scenes action, and plenty of animal photos, so pet lovers rejoice!
You can follow Kate on Instagram here: @kateomoennig

Lea DeLaria – @realleadelaria
Lea DeLaria is an American comedian, actress, and jazz singer. She is best known for her role in the lesbian Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. Lea played the part of Carrie Black – the butch character otherwise known as ‘Big Boo‘.
Lea is also the comedian who started the whole ‘U-haul’ lesbian joke. The joke refers to the common theory that lesbians move in together rather quickly. Which let’s face it, we do!
As it stands, Lea is single and ready to mingle, but never fails to entertain us with her comical photos and witty captions. Make sure to give the self-confessed ‘Lord of the Lesbians‘ a follow!

Lena Waithe – @lenawaithe
Our next celebrity lesbian Instagrammer is Lena Waithe. Lena is an actress and producer, who starred in the Netflix comedy Master of None.
Three years ago, Lena made Emmy history as the first Black woman to win for comedy series writing. The said episode Thanksgiving is said to be loosely based on Lena’s experiences coming out to her mother.
Above all else, Lena’s passion for equal rights is genuinely inspiring. We love that she uses her platform to raise awareness and amplify oppressed voices.

Ruby Rose – @rubyrose
We all know who Ruby Rose is, don’t we? Remember sexy Stella Carlin from series 3 of Orange Is the New Black? Stella won the heart of Piper, and pretty much every other woman who watched the show – straight or gay!
Her success on the show catapulted Ruby into stardom, and she has since starred in movies such as Pitch Perfect 3 & Batman. We are yet to watch either of them, but they are on our list.
You can expect plenty of sexy photos of Ruby on her Instagram account, and from what we can tell she’s still single. So girls, you might be in luck!
