whatiloveaboutbeingqueer:

Whenever I am touring or doing readings, inevitably I get approached by Tegan and Sara fans who share touching stories about the ways TnS have moved them, helped them come out, changed their lives. I am always so heartened to hear these stories but never surprised because in so many ways they have done the same for me. They have consistently believed in me and supported my work, and for this I feel incredibly grateful.
But perhaps most importantly, by being fearless, outspoken, and persistent, especially in a world that is often telling queers that we don’t exist or shouldn’t exist, they are two of my greatest inspirations. Through them I have learnt that it’s possible for me to be all of me in everything I do and so much of what I love about being queer is embodied by them.
Needless to say, I am so thrilled to share what Sara Quin loves about being queer:
"What I love about being Queer is that its ME. It has helped define My Art, My Voice, My Aesthetic and My Politics. Being Queer has encouraged me to speak out and to stand up. It’s forced me to take an active role in the world around me and its pushed me to demand the same from others. It’s made me a Role Model. I love being Queer."

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Just felt like posting one of my all-time favorite Tegan and Sara banters.

Normally they balance each other out, but this is one of the few times when they are BOTH crossing the line.

"I’m really upset that you said the tutu part"

"It’s like we’re on meth or something"

"How do we fix this?"

"We’re a little hyperactive"

"That vein thing probably was disgusting"

"We’re really sorry"

only the greatest Call It Off live performance ever

"I kinda wanna hug you all" -TRQ
