100 Women We Love 2015

We are thrilled to present this year’s 100 Women We Love—an incredibly diverse group of out entertainers, athletes, artists, activists, business leaders and elected officials.

WEGAN

First there was TomKat, then Brangelina, and now there´s Wegan. The portmanteau of couple Whitney and Megan, Wegan has gone from cute combo name to an entire brand based on the pair´s long-distance relationship. With one living in Hawaii and the other in the UK, Whitney and Megan set up a blog and YouTube channel to document their experience living apart. At the same time, the two feminine women sought to “fill a gap that we felt was missing-the face of femme lesbians.” Years later, Wegan is in one place, both living in the UK. But the adventures continue. They blog their home decorating, their travels and their day-to-day lives as “wife and wife.” Their popularity has soared; in 2014, a meet and greet event drew 600 fans. But with all their visibility, they say coming out “is an endless process. Especially as we´re a femme lesbian couple, we constantly get asked if we´re sisters! We often find ourselves justifying that we are truly gay.” For any young girls out there who worry they can´t be both feminine and gay, the couple says, “You don´t have to pick! You can still be you, whether that´s cutting your hair short or long, wearing Chapstick or lipstick, heels or flats. There´s a wide spectrum out there.” -SJ
