AfterEllen.com is a website that focuses on the portrayal of lesbians and bisexual women in the media. It was founded in April 2002 by Sarah Warn,[1] who serves as editor-in-chief. Michael Jensen is the editor of the gay male counterpart AfterElton.com, launched in January 2005.[2] Both websites were bought in 2006 by the cable television channel Logo.

AfterEllen.com is not affiliated with Ellen DeGeneres, although its name refers to the milestone for lesbians when DeGeneres publicly came out.

The site considers television, film, music, books, and celebrity news. It publishes articles, regular columns, reviews, recaps of television shows with lesbian and bisexual characters, and maintains several blogs. More recently, weekly video blogs, often called "vlogs," have become a key part of AfterEllen.com, the more popular of which include "We're Getting Nowhere," "Brunch With Bridget" and "She Made Me Watch This."

It is the top website for LGBT women, reaching over 700,000 readers a month as of 2008.[3] In March 2008, it was named one of "the world's 50 most powerful blogs" by British newspaper The Observer for its "irreverent look at how the lesbian community is represented in the media."[4]
