Kate "Kit" Porter was the half-sibling of Bette Porter. She is very loyal, passionate, and supportive of her family and friends.

She is one of the main characters on both The L Word and is the only main character that is heterosexual.

The L Word

Season 1

Kit was addicted to alcohol and continued to struggle with it, relapsing several times before she joined Alcoholics Anonymous. There, she met the genderqueer Ivan Aycock, whom she begins a non-sexual courtship with. He began to lead Kit on a better path, even aiding her in regaining her license, which had been revoked due to her DUI. Their romantic relationship ended when she accidentally walked in on him changing, revealing a binder, prosthetic penis, and Ivan's longer hair; this embarrassed him and made him feel uncomfortable with pursuing a romantic relationship with her.

Season 4: Kit finds out about Angus cheating on her. She relapses with alcohol.


Around nine years after Jenny's death, Kit got into a car accident. She was prescribed an opioid painkiller — a very powerful one that she quickly became addicted to, considering her already ongoing struggle with addiction. Around nine months later, she died of a heroin overdose.[1]
