Kaelyn and Lucy, a transatlantic couple who finally moved in together after years of braving long distance, have won the hearts of many with their genuine videos on YouTube. From their short films, funny challenges and necessary discussions on topics such as cyber bullying, I’ve become a huge fan of their videos and have always wondered how to support them in their advocacy for the LGBT community. Well gurls, here’s our chance! FLURT is starting a campaign to get Kaelyn and Lucy onto Ellen, and we absolutely need to promote it to spread awareness of not only their beautiful relationship but the positive messages they share. In case you’re still not sold, here are a few reasons why these two wonderful women need to be on Ellen:
1. They’re Role Models for Pretty Much Everyone
Even though the couple’s popularity has risen over the years they’ve kept their sex life private, making them appropriate to watch for all age groups and maturity levels. They’ve also built an inclusive community on their channel where they discuss important issues such as healthy relationships, sexual labels and self esteem.
2. The Couple is Super Accessible
Kaelyn and Lucy don’t just make videos – they’re a part of their community. The couple takes the time to make videos answering viewers’ questions, as well as reply to comments, tweets, emails and even letters via snail mail. With work, their relationships and everything life throws their way, they still make the time to reach out to as many people as possible, and that’s incredible.
3. They Maintain Humility
Magazine covers? Check. Over 17 million YouTube views? Check. Meet and greets? Check. Invited to speak at colleges? Check. A conference where over 600 people attended to watch them and two other LDR couples speak? Check. That’s definitely enough to bring someone’s ego up – but these two still keep it humble, consistently redirecting all their compliments back to the people watching them.
4. Kaelyn and Lucy Represent Us
We have some really strong celebrity lesbian role models out there, and I’m grateful for that. But sometimes it can be hard to relate to someone who has way more money or power than we’ll ever dream of having. When we watch Kaelyn and Lucy, we feel like we’re watching a version of ourselves. The couple reminds us that we have the power to change the world around us, even if it starts by making YouTube videos with our significant other.
5. So Many People Would Cry Tears of Joy
Does this really need any more explanation?
