Your weekly dose of celebrity commentary and gossip, with a lesbian spin.
Not only do the girls have the pipes of angels, but they sing about things like Chick-Fil-A, voting, and having two moms.
Bria and Chrissy met at a gay bar in Atlanta a year from this Monday. Coming from the heart of the Bible Belt, Chrissy was looking to further explore her interest in women and meet new people. That night she found Bria. The rest, as they say, is history.
Though neither Bria nor Chrissy had been politically active before, Bria got inspired to write a satirical song in lieu of Mitt Romney hiding his money and recorded it with Chrissy. Since Bria is a songwriter and local performer, her talents matched with budding actress and singer Chrissy, and the YouTube lesbian duo was formed.
About a month and a half ago, the couple came out with the song “Dear Chick-Fil-A (Because I’m a Homosexual)” which has over 50,500 hits and is also available on iTunes (with 50 percent of the proceeds being donated to the Freedom to Marry Campaign).
The song is about how sad the two are that they can no longer eat Chick-Fil-A because they’re “H to the O to the M to the homosexual, they hate those sexuals.”
“Now we’re doing everything we can to get abortion banned… Rape is bad, but at least someone gets a dad.”
They even objectively ask people to vote, stating the pros and cons for both candidates.
“The pros for voting for Romney would be that we would finally have an old white guy living in the White House.”
“The cons for voting for Obama are that women would spend a lot less time in the kitchen.”
These two are absolutely beautiful and unbelievably strong, even when the internet brings out the vicious side of people. Both Bria and Chrissy confessed that though they get overwhelmingly more positive feedback then negative, there is certainly a lot of hate.
“People hide behind the internet,” Bria said during a quick phone chat. “You don’t see their faces and who they are, so they think they’re free to be cruel. It’s brutal.”
Chrissy and Bria experienced hatred while protesting the anti-gay demonstration at the Democratic National Convention in July.
“People were screaming into our ears that we were trash,” Chrissy said. “It stung. I thought ‘wow, there are people out there that think I’m trash.’”
However, a little trash talk won’t bring these two down. The positive outshines the hatred and they have had many rave reviews by gay teens saying how inspired they were by Bria and Chrissy.
For now, Bria and Chrissy are working on their pop-electric album and will continue to make YouTube videos as long as “people in politics continue to mess up and allow us ammunition,” Bria said.
Well, we can certainly bank on that, now can’t we? Keep an eye out for these two. This certainly isn’t the last you’ll be hearing from them.
