Tegan And Sara have established their own foundation dedicated to helping LGBTQ girls and women. The Tegan And Sara Foundation is active now and was launched with a lengthy mission statement from the sisters, who released their Love You To Death album earlier this year.
“LGBTQ women are experiencing disproportionately high levels of poverty, health issues and inequality,” they write. “LGBTQ women of color, especially transgender women often experience these issues even more severely due to racism and transphobia.”
The Tegan and Sara Foundation will work with groups similar to theirs to support “economic justice, health, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women,” based on principles of “feminism and racial, social, and gender justice.” The duo add that the "regressive legislature" of the incoming Trump administration was a factor in starting the foundation.
