I've loved this band for a very very long time. All their songs mean a great deal to me because I'm part of the community and so are they. They are a huge influence in my life in terms of figuring out who I want to be in terms of what gender I want to be and how to tell people about really tough stuff in my life that I'm going through. So they are my guides through the whole LGBT community. And how to get involved with it on a really deep level. Thanks Tegan and Sara for that.
I saw them live once and once won't be the last time I'll see the Quin sisters! Thank you Ellen Page for getting me back into them, by the way. I love everything about what their music and life opinions stand for especially the talking videos they do about issues. Knowing their story has helped me come out of the closet I've been in since I was thirteen and that has been a mind-f for me. They've helped me break out of my shell - thanks T&S for all your support through all my personal shit. (although you don't know anything about it.). I'm in a wheelchair and part of the community and being part of the community in general is f-ing hard, but being in a chair and also being not straight is difficult for me and everybody else who has the courage to come out and be whoever the hell they want to be - that is the number one thing that we, as a community, have to remember. And T&S helps us with that journey that we in our own little pocket of the world are still searching for. Thanks guys, Brendan Walsh.
