Calista Flockhart & Lucy Liu – Television’s First Interracial Lesbian Kiss

Many TV trivia pundits say that US television’s first interracial kiss was between Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura (William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols) in a 1968 episode of Star Trek. Actually, that isn’t true because Lucy and Ricky Ricardo (Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez) kissed many times on screen in I Love Lucy over a decade earlier, but I digress. Above is US television’s first interracial lesbian kiss, between Ally McBeal and Ling Woo (Calista Flockhart and Lucy Liu), on an episode of Ally McBeal entitled “Buried Pleasures,” which aired in November of 1999. It didn’t suck.
