This week’s girl crush is a two for one.
These talented twins from Canada have been releasing albums since 1999 with several big hits to their name. Not only are T and S twin sisters and band mates, they are also great friends. The two recently released a CD/DVD package called Get Along (now available on Netflix) which chronicles their travels in the US and India, showcasing the strong sisterly bond between them.
Both Tegan and Sara are dedicated to their fans, taking the time to blog on their official website, frequently update their twitter and run a tumblr, not to mention the video goodies and extras that they dedicate so frequently to fans.
Possibly my favorite thing about these girls is that they are advocates and activists for the issues that matter most to them. Both Tegan and Sara are openly gay, and they have recently joined up with the company Revel and Riot to design and model tee shirts promoting marriage equality and equal rights for everyone in the LGBTQIAP community.
