This is a blog to detail the life of Wegan. Who or what is Wegan I hear you ask? We are Whitney & Megan, a femme (aka 'lipstick') lesbian couple who endured four years of long distance between Hawaii & the UK. Follow & share on our journey, with our lives loved together and lived apart.
We set this blog up at the end of 2009 in order to document our lives and have memories to look back on. Though we also wanted to put our story out there due to the lack of visible lesbian role models, in particularly femme/ lipstick lesbians. We want to show that yes long distance relationships can and do work, and yes feminine lesbians do exist!
Wegan have been together since October 2008. We first met online for a few years (thank you Myspace & Facebook!) and met in person when Whitney came over to the UK to study abroad in September 2008. We had never admitted to liking each other online but two weeks later on 5th October 2008 we were officially girlfriend & girlfriend. For the next few months we saw each other in Cardiff & London until it was time for Whit to sadly move back to Hawaii to finish her degree, and we embarked on 4 years of LONG distance.
We went back and forth to each others countries numerous times, including Megan moving out to Hawaii in March 2011, until Whitney graduated in May 2011. Megan went down on one knee and proposed to Whitney on their favourite beach in Hawaii (click here to read all). They had planned to return to the UK together, however Whitney's visa was sadly unsuccessful. Whitney then spent a year in South Carolina before securing a visa to join Megan and begin their life in the UK.
We now have a beautiful home together in England, aka Wegan Manor, we said our "I Do's" and got our Civil Partnership in September 2012. We plan on having our big wedding aka 'wegging' sometime soon.. no kids yet... but we now have a beautiful cat named Kisses!!
We are proud to have conquered long distance and that we are finally living out our lives together.
True Love Prevails All.
