Deadline for submissions was January 20th. We are no longer accepting nominations.
With 2011 safely in our rearview mirrors, the L Stop crew thought that now would be a good time to look ahead into 2012 and introduce you to some of the ladies in our very own community to look out for. While there are certainly a bunch of talented ladies on our radar, we wanted to hear directly from you, our friends and readers, to find out which ladies should be featured in our first annual “Ten Lesbians To Look Out For”.
That’s right, we want you to tell us about Chicago-based lesbians whose talents, expertise, advocacy and overall personas are helping to beautify Chicago just by waking up each morning.
Before you nominate your girlfriend, best friend, favorite bartender or dog walker, try to keep a few things in mind: We’re looking for lesbians who are out making noise on the scene. We’re talking the artists, the advocates, the athletes, the caregivers, the people making the parties and the ladies who protect us. You’ve got some ladies in mind? Great, now here’s what we need from you between January 9th-20th:
- Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- In 500 words or less, rave about the awesomeness of the person you are nominating and let us know why they are someone we should be keeping in eye on in 2012.
- Let us know the best way for us to get in touch with you (email/phone/singing telegram/Bat signal)
- Tell your friends that they can submit nominations too
When you’re done with that, sit back, relax and join us out at some events we’ll be having in the next two weeks:
Then, count down the days until the unveiling of 2012’s Top 10 Lesbians To Look Out For.

Mia can probably call herself a professional when it comes to blogging, music listening, whiskey drinking, French bulldog cuddling and sarcasm. She writes two weekly music columns for After Ellen and is psyched to be part of The L Stop and have the opportunity to write for fellow Chicagoans.
