Video: Tegan and Sara Interview ‘Heartthrob’ Kate Moennig

Anyone who’s been reading Tegan and Sara‘s Heartthrob press like it’s their job would’ve noticed this little announcement that they’d be releasing a video interview with “arguably the most famous, hip, lesbian of our generation”. That day has come, and it’s the heartthrob you were hoping it would be.

I don’t think I need to explain why this is good.

The Heartthrob video interview series, which is directed by Clea DuVall, can be seen here.

  1. This was super charming, and I’m not of the queer population to throw panties and bras at any of these women.

  2. Yeah,way too short.Still cute though.Although,I’d say it’s pretty obvious the heartthrob in this video is TRQ.

  3. I can’t contain my feelings…or my hormones…
    This was perfect! I just bought my tickets to see them too! Too much excitement! :D

  4. There seems to be a lot of fan girling over this video on tumblr.I especially liked the “OMG,this is the Holy Trinity!”,and “I want to have sex with all 3 of them”, with of course an abundance of ” This is my dream !” comments.Baby dykes seem to really like this video.

  5. Can’t lie, knowing this video was waiting for me when I was done at work got me through the day today.

  6. I saw this when T&S shared it on FB and I was at work…needless to say I could not think straight for next hour. Not that I wanted to!

  7. I don’t understand why this video suddenly isn’t working for me on any site it’s on! I saw it up at work before but couldn’t watch it and now there’s just a blank space where the video should be… no matter where I look. HALP

    • The same thing is happening for me on Autostraddle and Did intense lesbian traffic crash the thing?

      • PROBABLY because this is like all of our dreams coming true. But I have now seen it and it has been SO LONG since I heard Kate Moennig’s voice! I FORGOT!!

  8. This is way too short. I watched it twice in a row and it was still too short. But still – charming and lovely.

  9. So sad that this video goes for a little under two minutes, as opposed to just under two hours…
    But still, so much happiness! ^_^

  10. The Warner Brothers marketing machine wouldn’t let them mention The L Word by name?

    Also, Tegan, marry me.

  11. I love how when Tegan is nervous she fiddles.Almost always.Watch from 1:25 on…so cute,she fiddles with her laces.

    • Seriously, they’re all too gorgeous for the massive amounts of makeup / spray tan they have on.

    I bet she secretly is obsessed with Tegan and would be elated if she hung a poster up of her.

  13. love how she described her first heartthrob. “i wanted *everything,* absolutely everything that [they] had to offer.” so true!

  14. So last night I had a dream that Kate and Tegan were one person and I was hanging out with them/her(Kagan? Tate? anywayz…) and just as my dream was getting really…ahem…awesome, my damn cat woke me up!!! I’m still pissed.
