Tegan and Sara’s new video is a gift to LGBT and genderqueer youth

The video, for the song “Faint of Heart,” features a crop of young trans and queer social media stars including Tyler Ford, Ella Giselle, Dominic Ravina, Olabisi Kovabel, Cooper Treibel, Eli Erlick, and Ni Ching-Marino. The LGBT youth (some of whom are still in their teens) pay homage to musical icons like Prince, David Bowie, Madonna, and Elvis—as well as a couple dressed as the Quinn sisters themselves.

But it’s the circumstances that surrounded the filming that made the video even more emotional for the performers. 


Favorite Fitz’s Heart Eyes Moments [6/10]

3x03 - What else was I going to do? His head tilts at her and his shoulders move back and forth. He soaks in the moment. He’s allowed to soak her in, to stare at her, across from her on their date. A date he’s been waiting six months to take her on. And he’s allowed—just for a moment—to love her in every way he wants to love her. And relishes in it because he knows how precious time is between them. (x)

“Sometimes when you’re young, you have moments of such happiness, you think you’re living on someplace magical, like Atlantis must have been. Then we grow up and our hearts break into two.”
