Tegan and Sara Quin let Billboard shadow them as they attended Pride events in New York on June 24; this included a surprise appearance at a party in Soho and their performance that night at Pride Island.
Kiehl's is known for its super moisturizing face creams and game-changing anti-aging serums, but did you also know that Kiehl's supports the Tegan & Sara Foundation? Well now you do. In celebration of Pride month, Kiehl's has created limited edition packaging for its top selling Ultra Facial Cream and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, and 100% of the profits will benefit the Tegan & Sara Foudation (up to $5,000).
Tegan and Sara performed at this year's first annual The Village Voice Pride Awards, sponsored by Netflix's Sense8, on June 21 in New York City. The event aimed to "honor local and global heroes in the LGBTQ movement working for progress for the community."
On Monday, June 19, Sara joined a conversation on Twitter about LGBTQ+ representation in media. She was joined by GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis and Angelica Ross, an Emmy-nominated actor and co-star of Claws.
Tegan and Sara donate a portion of proceeds from Canadian tour to three Canadian organizations
With the announcement of our two Canada 150 shows in Victoria and Calgary, we want to take a moment to acknowledge the Indigenous peoples of Canada. Today we stand in solidarity to show our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, and to building lasting relationships with Indigenous Canada. That’s why we have decided to support three important organizations in Canada – Native Youth Sexual Health, 2-Spirited People of the 1st Nations, and Egale Canada – by donating a portion of our Canadian tour proceeds this summer to each organization.
