Chapstick Lesbian is the dividing line between the lipstick and a butch lesbian. While butch lesbians revel in looking more masculine and lipsticks being ultra girly, a chapstick lesbian can go either way. She likes dressing up, but equally is happy in jeans and a button down. Most lesbians in general embody these versatile traits of masculinity and femininity.

Examples[]

  • Leda, Melanie's ex girlfriend can be seen as a chapstick lesbian, however, she exceeds masculinity of typical lesbian by her actions. She is possibly more related to being a "Tomboy".
  • Melanie Marcus is more of a Chapstick lesbian in the beginning of the Queer as Folk, however, she is a varied combination of more contemporary lesbian types.
  • Lindsay Peterson becomes more "Chapstick" later in the series. While she is the most lipstick of any lesbian in the series, she expands and grows as she dresses less "pristine" and even more revealing and in jeans from time to time. This shows more independence she has grown into; especially from the lifestyle she is accustom to when she lived with her parents.
