And the winner of the AfterEllen March Madness Best Lesbian/Bi Character Tournament is …

We started out with 64 lesbian/bi TV/movie characters and after millions of votes were cast, AfterEllen readers have chosen Lost Girl‘s Dr. “Hot Pants” Lauren Lewis as the Best Lesbian/Bi Character ever. On her way to the championship, she took down South of Nowhere‘s Ashley Davies, Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Willow Rosenberg, The L Word‘s Bette Porter, Pretty Little Liars‘ Emily Fields, and Glee‘s Santana Lopez. When you stack the victories together like that, it sounds even more impressive. Congratulations to Lost Girl‘s passionate, unquenchable fandom.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the fun, and an enormous bear-hugging thank you to our AfterEllen moderator Harpy, without whom this tournament would never have made it past the first round.
