Tegan and Sara  Set Up a Foundation for  LGBTQ  Women and Girls, and We Love Them Even More

We thought we couldn't love them any more. And then this happened.

From their music to their style to their videos to their status as queer role models, there are so many reasons why they are already well-established leaders in the LGBTQ community, and why we adore them. 

Well, now you can add official do-gooder to the long list of accomplishments that already make them so freaking awesome.

In a letter on their website, the sisters announced earlier today the creation of the Tegan and Sara Foundation, an organization created to help LGBTQ women and girls.

They wrote:

LGBTQ women are experiencing disproportionately high levels of poverty, health issues and inequality. LGBTQ women of color, especially  transgender women often experience these issues even more severely due to racism and transphobia. Today, given the state of politics in the United States, we must continue to unite and fight for our rights and against all forms of oppression.  

Through the Tegan and Sara Foundation, we can be proactive with our support rather than wait to react to discrimination as it occurs. We will support the work of other organizations who have been fighting for LGBTQ and women's rights by raising funds and awareness for their initiatives. We will fight against the repressive legislation of the incoming Trump administration. We will fight against regressive homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic legislation. We will fight for economic, racial and gender justice. We started the Foundation to dismantle the systems of inequity that prevent LGBTQ girls and women from reaching their full potential. Together, we can make a difference. 

We are loving this! If you want to help their initiative now, you can donate here.
