Born in Okinawa, Japan to American parents, Hailey grew up in Bellevue, Nebraska and attended Bellevue West High School. She came out as a lesbian before moving to New York City to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she graduated in 1991.
Hailey's first major role was in 1997's cult hit All Over Me, and right around this time she played a struggling musician on an episode of Boy Meets World. Since 2004 she has starred as Alice Pieszecki, a bisexual journalist, on the The L Word. Some of her notable minor roles have been as an extra in an episode of Ellen and, since 2003, various Yoplait commercials that still air as of 2008.
With her Academy classmate Heather Grody, she formed the pop duo The Murmurs. They enjoyed a cult following in the 1990s, released several albums and toured on the Lilith Fair. In 2001, Hailey and Grody changed their name to Gush. The band split when Leisha began working for The L-Word. In 2005, Hailey founded Marfa Records, the first artist being Amy Cook. Currently, Hailey is working on an album with her new band, Uh Huh Her where she is a singer and guitarist, together with friends Alicia Warrington (drums) and Camila Grey (producer, vocals, synth, bass). Warrington has since left the band, but Grey and Hailey continue to work together and have released an EP on July 24, 2007. They are now working on an album scheduled to come out in March 2008.
Leisha was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight in September 2011 for showing to much affection to another chick in public. Southwest says they cannot let that happen because they are a family airline. Come on Southwest! It's 2011.
