Gail is lesbian. Although she has a history with men in the first three seasons, in season 4 she comes out to herself after she meets forensic pathologist Holly Stewart. In 5x06, when a suspect asks if he can get dressed before going to the police station, Peck tells him that he will be escorted by her fellow officer (Nick Collins) because "I don't do the boys anymore." In 5x09, she tells Nick that going to the Peck family dinner was supposed to be her first dinner with them as a lesbian, and had hoped it would be with Holly. The romantic relationship with Holly ends when Gail turns down moving to America with Holly because of her intent to adopt a daughter (5x11). In season 6, Gail meets detective Frankie Anderson and becomes involved with her.
(Showrunner Tassie Cameron, as well as Charlotte Sullivan, affirmed Gail's sexual orientation.[2][3][4] Co-exec producer/writer Sherry White, who was to become showrunner had the series been renewed for a seventh season, said Gail and Holly would have been reunited.[5])

In 4x07, after Gail tells her that, just like a cat who climbs up a tree then doesn't know how to get down from it, she creates emergency situations to get out of relationships, Holly responds that it used to be the same for her, but it turned out to be due to her not liking men because she was a lesbian.[6]
Frankie is lesbian. In 6x09, she informs Gail that her brother (Steve Peck) once wanted to set them up because he thought they'd make a perfect match, then recounts her vexing experiences with women. In the series finale episode, Gail's roommates discover that she and Gail had spent the night together when Frankie comes out of Gail's bedroom to get a cup of coffee (6x11).[7]
