Again, it’s impossible for me to pick just one wonderful woman this Wednesday, so here’s a trio of rad LGBTQ Canadian girls, whom I’ve met (or at least seen).
Vivek Shraya, who’s celebrating her birthday today -Happy Birthday!- presented one of her shorts at the Regent Park Film Festival in 2015, and then there was a very interesting Q&A with the directors, and then I ran into her at the streetcar stop and had the chance to tell her how much it touched me.
I saw Tegan and Sara at the MuchMusic Video Awards in June last year, and they (or at least Tegan) saw me! And last saturday, my sister and I went to their show in Paris and I’m not over it, so not over it! I’ve stars in my eyes and so, so, so much love for them!
And Ria Mae opened for the Quins on that very night, and she and Chris were on fire! Her voice is amazing, they are truly talented musicians and I, for one, can’t resist a girl who sings “Take your clothes off!”
I’ve said it a million times, I’ll say it a million more: Canadian girls fucking rock! (and I almost know these three!)
*I took all but Vivek’s picture; I still haven’t had the chance to see Too Attached on stage (but it’s on my Bucket List!)
I get to love you, it’s the best thing that I’ll ever do. I get to love you, it’s a promise I’m making to you. Whatever may come; your heart I will choose. Forever I’m yours, forever I do. I get to love you, I get to love you.”

This is actually for @hohodaddario , because I’m so late with her birthday-fic (which is Jimon, but I felt that my queens deserved some love so I decided to make a Clizzy-edit in excuse, there are too few of them out there (a) ). Happy Birthday, Sara, and I’m sorry for being the worst at keeping deadlines!
