#Quote
1Sara and I represent something much bigger than our first record. I think people like us should be in the mainstream. We're gay, we're alternative, we're outspoken and we write great music. Why can't we infuse the mainstream with a bit of Tegan and Sara?
2I think love is absolutely undefinable and there should not be restrictions - worldwide - for same-sex marriages, relationships and rights. And it's so much broader than that: It's about adoption rights, hospital visitation rights, benefits and all sorts of stuff. I think it's really amazing to have someone like Mackelmore, with the incredible power he has right how, to stand up onstage every night and say, 'I don't care if you agree with me. This is what's right'.
3We started playing acoustic guitars not because we wanted to be like Ani DiFranco or Jewel, but because we loved the Violent Femmes and the Pixies, and they play acoustic instruments.
