Tegan wasn’t expecting to run into Patrick when she entered the store, still a little shaken by the greater by the door, a small skeleton that came to life unexpectedly when one passed by. Tegan hesitated for a moment, wanting to make sure he was not in the company of another before making her way towards him. Her fingers reached over for a costume, something that resembled a clown but far scarier than the ones that came with a circus. She held up the costume, her entire body hidden behind it as she came up behind him. “I’ve done it. I’ve found your perfect costume.” She laughed, lowering it enough for him to see her face as she passed it over to him.
i’m so fucking grateful to hayley kiyoko for unapologetically singing songs about girls & having romantic feelings for girls & girls being in love.
like, i honestly feel like she’s following in the footsteps of tegan & sara and in a lot of ways surpassing them. her unapologetic & brave use of she/her pronouns in her songs are groundbreaking and i am so grateful to her and the music she’s making.
like… when i was a struggling, abused 15-16 year old living in a homophobic household tegan & sara saved my life. their songs about loss & love & breaking up carried me through because i knew they were women like me. because i knew that those songs were written especially for women like us.
and i’m so glad that another lbpq female artist has come into popularity and will help this generation of gay & bi girls know they aren’t alone, their feelings aren’t invalid, that the things they’re feeling are normal and beautiful and okay.
