Tegan and Sara play for thousands of fans every night and they make their fans feel like they are important, that they exist, that queers and girls can be rock stars too, that it’s about them and about their lives and about the guitars and as they are defined by the music, they are made real in the world. Tegan and Sara make more than music. They make a whole generation of queers and girls feel like they matter. It’s powerful and profound. When I look out into the crowd at a Tegan and Sara show, I feel a kind of elation, like together, in the music, we can do anything. It’s the way rock and roll makes us invincible. With Tegan and Sara we can overcome anything – homophobia, sexism, even heartbreak. I love them. I love them so fucking much.
