Hannah and Jane met at Brooklyn queer party Misster at The Woods (shout out to Amber Valentine!). They had arranged to get a drink before Hannah returned to North Carolina, but Jane lost her nerve and blew off the date. They ended up running into each other at Cubbyhole days later — a modern lesbian love story. “I guess you can’t fight fate,” Jane says, “We moved to LA the following summer.” Though marriage hadn’t been something they grew up thinking about, they both can’t imagine their lives without each other. “We’ve discussed it and know it’s something we both want, eventually. Plus, Jane likes to tell me that I have to let our kids choose if they want to be vegan or not… so I guess you could say that marriage is in the mix somewhere down the line,” says Hannah.

The pair attributes their healthy relationship to honest communication. “I was raised to believe that by acknowledging an issue or concern (especially when difficult), it shows that you care, and that has also proven true in our relationship,” Jane tells GO. Hannah’s favorite thing about Jane is that she “genuinely wants to see her loved ones succeed.” In five years, the pair hopes to still be evolving. They also hope to own five dogs.
