Tegan & Sara On Marriage Equality: "We’re Getting Closer"

FUSE TV - Tegan & Sara On Marriage Equality: "We’re Getting Closer"

Sisters Tegan and Sara Quin--currently riding high with a newly pop-oriented sound on their recent album, Heartthrob--are still every bit the outspoken activists they've been for most of their 13-year career. 

That outspokenness includes the currently front-burner issue of marriage equality.

Same-sex marriage increasingly has Americans on its side, with overwhelming support among young people. Although the Quins hail from Canada, where same-sex marriage has been legal since 2005, they both live in the States--meaning they have a stake in, and an opinion on, the two potentially landmark cases currently facing the Supreme Court. 

Both have long-time girlfriends. Sara is a New York resident, where gay marriage is legal, but Tegan lives in Los Angeles, where for the moment at least, it's not. That could change, depending on how the court decides the case involving the California's Proposition 8. 

Fuse News recently spoke to Tegan & Sara about the future of marriage equality rights and whether they plan on walking down the aisle any time soon.

So ladies, it's been about 9 months since we spoke about this stuff, and in that time these two big, potentially landmark cases have come in front of the Supreme Court. What are your thoughts on the Prop 8 case, which Tegan, could potentially really impact you and your partner?
