Emily & Maya (Pretty Little Liars)

Same-Sex TV Couples


Emily and Maya might not have been endgame on Pretty Little Liars, but you have to admit that Alison was horrible. Maya was Emily’s first girlfriend, and although the relationship fell into a lot of TV stereotypes about girl-on-girl relationships, PLL dealt with Emily coming out of the closet pretty realistically, focused on her relationships when it made sense to, and otherwise just let her live without making her sexuality her entire character. It would have been nice if showrunners had given Emily a partner we could actually root for at some point instead of having her get together with her middle school bully who she eventually divorces but, hey, that’s life.
