Tegan and Sara perform at Seattle’s Bumbershoot (Sept. 1, 2013)
can we talk about this?
* whispering *
and those collarbones for the love of god?
Tegan: “Sara took the first, you know, blast, and that affects you as a gay person when who is supposed to be your biggest ally doesn’t necessarily jump on board right away. It was really hard”.
Sara: "Wow, now we can be a pop band and we can be a political band." We were like, "Okay, like lets get behind the big guns here. Like, lets make some change. Like, I want to see this stuff before I’m dead."
Tegan: “I don’t think our music is eradicating ignorance and homophobia or sexism, I think it’s just helping people come a little bit further, you know, over the line to understand it”.
Sara: “I choose to be a visible minority everyday. I come out everyday. I actively look for ways now to talk about who I am because I want to live as openly as I can, but I also want to inspire those who living and being themselves is a tremendous effort and takes a tremendous amount of courage. Hey everybody. We’re Teagan and Sara”.
She looks so proud of being herself.
Fuck yeah, I’m Sara Quin. I’m talented, intelligent, successful, adorable, and super hot. Every lesbian in the world wants to fuck me or be me.
