Tegan and Sara launch foundation to support LGBTQ girls and women
Tegan and Sara launched the Tegan and Sara Foundation, which aims to benefit LGBTQ girls and women.

Tegan and Sara have officially launched the Tegan and Sara Foundation, a new project that will "fight for economic justice, health and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.“ 

They’ve been working on the foundation through the duration of their most recent tour, meeting with “activists, legislators, researchers and nonprofits” who work on LGBTQ issues. They’ve also said they’re drawing inspiration from groups like the Audre Lorde Project and GLAAD, and their note announcing the foundation called out how women of color and transgender women are disproportionately affected by social inequalities. 

Since the beginning of our career, our LGBTQ fans have supported us in innumerable ways. Our journey navigating sexism and homophobia in the music industry has always been interwoven with the stories you share with us. Your personal histories of injustice and discrimination at home, school, work, and church have inspired us to use our public status to speak out about the struggles of the LGBTQ community.

Our fans not only support us, but each other as well. We see hope and strength in our community, whether through every day acts of kindness or through the power of mobilizing behind a common cause. Therefore, it is with deep gratitude and pride that we commit ourselves further to the fight for justice, equality and progress. […]

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.

Hell. Yes. I was born ready for this.
