Jenny's life is turned upside down when she attends a party hosted by Tim's neighbors, Bette and Tina, a lesbian couple who are looking to take the step into parenthood after seven years of dating. A brief encounter at the party suddenly has Jenny thrust into the local lesbian community and a whole new world she never understood until she questions her own sexual orientation.
The Real L Word follows a group of real-life, high-profile west coast lesbians as they go about their daily lives, at work and play.
Ten years later, a group of diverse and self-possessed LGBTQIA professionals attempt to navigate life and love with some new friends in Los Angeles.
