Downtown divas

With two of the ladies heading uptown this week, we revisit our list of ten local women every gay man should be obsessed with.

Sandra Bernhard, legend
Why you're already obsessed: While she's not a full-time New Yorker, this city—especially its gays—has always worshipped Ms. Bernhard, who blazed the trail for virtually all of the other women on this list. She's flirted with mainstream fame several times over the years, but she always comes back downtown to commune with her devoted fans. Even when she berates her audience (which she does often, and hilariously), there's no question that she loves us—just as much as we love her.—EL
