I'd say that like stocks and shares, with sexuality past performance is not indicative of future trends. My own feeling is that current relationship status is relevant however, and this is where she falls down. I'd be far happier to call her a lesbian were she not in fact in a sexual relationship with a man at the moment.

Oh, and re "effeminate". I don't see why "feminine" wouldn't work in this context. I try to reserve "effeminate" for drag queens or nelly queers (what's the politically correct term for those these days anyway?), since their behaviour is quite stylised. (Also in the former case at least patronising and somewhat objectionable, but probably best not getting into that now.)
