Tegan's Girlfriend - Lindsey Byrnes

Tegan's Girlfriend Lindsey Byrnes

Lots of fans still questioning who Tegan's Girlfriend is, but i guess it's fix now that the answer is Lindsey Byrnes. Lindsey Byrnes is a Los Angeles based photographer who worked with various artists as her photography object, including Tegan and Sara. Some other bands that also become her object are an horse and uh huh her, uh..and also death cab for cutie.
Her work with Tegan and Sara was posted on her site www.thelbproject.com and the pictures was put on www.stereogum.com
This is from an interview from 4.january 2010:
"You guys are at different stages in your lives, relationship-wise. Sara broke up with her girlfriend, but Tegan, your girlfriend is L.A.-based photographer Lindsey Byrnes, who took many of the pictures in On, It, At, and who you knew previously.

TEGAN: It took me a long time to convert her to be a lesbian! Four years of charming. It's hard. I don't advise anyone to try. But it was something I needed to have under my belt.

SARA: I've been single for about two and a half years, it's scary."

  1. I'm thinking you were kidding about 'converting' Lindsey to being a lesbian. That would play into every gay-bashing hater's belief that being gay isn't something deeper than a 'choice'. Right-wing religious fanatics would be waving it as 'proof' of a lifestyle choice which could be changed or 'cured'!

  2. Being gay is a choice to a large extent, just as it is natural to a certain extent. And "converting" a girl to become a lesbian is about as sick as a pedophile grooming a child.

  3. I dunno, just looking at Lindsey's picture, she must have already been a closet lesbian in the first place.

  5. LOL ever hear of the kinsey scale?? very few people are hard straight or hard gay---most fall within the broad scope of the spectrum. but you extremists and your labels! you condemn what's natural everywhere but your rigid bigoted archaic culture. people should love people as individuals. and you can't "convert" someone to being queer if they're not already inclined in the first place.

    signed,
    queer girl

  6. Completely agree w/ queer girl. Such ignorant remarks from those who are too afraid and close-minded to bother looking into its legitimacy. The only thing that's sick is all the hatred toward people who love each other.

  7. I'm ignorant I guess but I need help, I kind of relate to Tegan in this one. I've been sort of chasing a lesbian girl (I'm a straight man btw) with whom I've been inlove for 3 years already, I've resigned already since I think it's impossible to make her fall for me (I didn't knew she was a lesbian until a few months ago) but stories like this one make me feel like I've a chance, or is it just not possible and Lindsey was not completely straight and never got "converted" and did liked girls before? Thanks.

  8. Only the person who is going through things, truly knows what inspires them to be a certain way. You are not ignorant, first. But generally, chasing someone more than courting them through dates, never works out. If you have to 'convince' someone you're worthy of their attention, it's not a good sign. Focus on finding a girl that is interested in you from the jump.
    Re: being gay and converted. As a religious female, and reading the Bible, God does consider being sexual with someone of the same sex a sin. He also considers getting drunk, gambling, cursing and adultery sin as well. But he also forgives us of our sins, understands our place in life and warns us not to judge others. So that being said, being gay is what is it. You don't have to support it, but God did not put you here to be the judge of what's right and wrong.
