The Intimate Confessions of Tegan and Sara
When we first started Tegan and Sara, we had to push back so hard against the natural instinct to label us or label our audiences or sort of put us in a box and make us unattractive to anyone but queer people. But there were lots of years when we really pushed back against this idea that our sexuality was relevant and that our music had some kind of categorization because of our sexuality.

It really jeopardized the band and my relationship with Tegan. There was a lot of conflict and fighting—physical fighting. We were just miserable. I really wish I could go back and tend to that person a little bit differently.
