Dani Campbell is an American reality television participant who became notable in the lesbian community as a symbol of self-assurance, causing Curve to call her "the first lesbian girl next door,"[1] and the Miami Herald to declare her South Florida's "most eligible lesbian."[2] She was the runner-up in the first bisexual dating reality show, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and the final female contestant. Most recently she appeared in the third season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami on the episode 'Lez-B-Honest', which aired January 27, 2013.

Campbell is a firefighter/paramedic in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. During the show, she revealed that she came out as a lesbian to her mother at 16 years old. She also said she does not identify as either a butch or femme lesbian but as a cross between the two, in her words, "futch."[1]

Following the airing of the show, she was considered a celesbian and developed a following, including 11 to 18 year old girls and lesbians of all ages.[1] During the airing of the show, she emerged as a fan favorite.[3] MTV reported that Campbell was the most popular celebrity on one of its websites (iamonmtv.com), with 28,000 fans.[4]

Campbell stated she was going to start a clothing line, called Futch Apparel, to cater to women like her who preferred gender-neutral or men's clothing in sizes appropriate for women.[1] However, she now operates a website called Pink Boy Blue Girl that sells only t-shirts and tank tops.[5]
