Waiting to go on stage- eek!!
Knowing the impact that we have on these attendees, mainly young LGBT teens, but also older followers and parents to, is a incomprehensible feeling. We were told that by putting our lives out there, living visibly as a happily married femme couple, we have made lives easier for the younger (and older) generation in accepting who they are or knowing that they will end up happy. To be seen as role models truly makes what we do all the more worthwhile. What we created wasn't just a Youtube event, is was a safe haven for LGBT teens to meet up and make friends. They frequently commented how amazing it was to feel they could be themselves, I'm so glad we could provide that for them!
Once the event was all over (sob) we headed back to Luclyn's apartment, popped a bottle of Moet to cheers.. and in rock star style, we headed back home and grabbed a McDonalds at the train station as we were starving!! Haha. Pure glamour!!
It truly will remain one of the most memorable days of our lives, and not only was it great to meet such lovely followers, it truly reinforced the friendship and love that we have for both Kaelyn and Lucy & Rose and Rosie. Can't wait to see you girls all again!! Until then...

I also wrote an article for the Huffington Post, why not give it a read as well- #ROSWEGLYN- A Youtube 'Meet & Greet' That Became So Much More.

P.S don't eat Burger King & Dominos the night before a big event.. Megan looked like she had a kangaroo pouch & Whitney had no eyes- we were SOOO bloated! We laugh so much at all of the pics. It had to be the one day AT LEAST 600 pictures were taken!....
