Morning Brew – Tegan and Sara announce new album date & title

Good morning! Happy Friday!

Today is National Women and Girls HIV & AIDS Awareness Day, and the HRC wants to make sure LGBT women are in the know. From the lesbian Director of HRC’s Children, Youth, and Families Program Ellen Kahn:

“Early into the HIV epidemic, lesbian, bisexual and queer women sprang into action to take care of their gay and bisexual brothers and friends. Women must continue to step up and step into conversations about sex and sexuality to model for girls and young women the importance of sexual health and well-being, to promote agency over one’s body and to underscore the importance of making comprehensive, LGBTQ-inclusive sexual health education and care available to all.”
