2008 Hot 100 Preview: LEISHA HAILEY

Voting ended on the 2008 AfterEllen.com Hot 100 last week, and the list will be published on June 2nd. Between now and then, we’re going to post one woman on the blog each day who made the list, and let you guess where you think she ranked, and why you voted for her (if you did).

First up: last year’s winner, Leisha Hailey, star of The L Word and one-half of the band Uh Huh Her.

She didn’t top this year’s list, but she’s still pretty high up there — where do you think she ended up?

And what makes her hotter: the character she plays on The L Word, the fact that she’s openly gay, or the fact that she’s in a band? Or (d) all of the above?
