Watch Trans Youth Channel Pop Icons in Tegan & Sara’s ‘Faint of Heart’

Tegan Sara Faint of Heart

An ensemble of LGBT young people lip sync to the duo’s single dressed as legendary performers from Madonna to Grace Jones.

The latest single from Tegan & Sara is accompanied with a video that tells LGBT youth that anything is possible.

Filmed a day after Pulse nightclub shooting Orlando, the 'Faint of Heart' music video sees the artists take a back seat on their own track. Instead, a group of LGBT youth dress up to lip sync the lyrics as stylish pop icons, including Prince, Madonna, Elvis, Grace Jones, and David Bowie. The pair even cast lookalikes for themselves.

The artists themselves only appear for a short bit--applauding the kids from the audience.

"From the second we walked in, I felt incredibly emotional," Tegan told Teen Vogue. "The cast was so young, so excited, so talented, so friendly, and so diverse. It was clear this video was going to be very special. I felt honored to be included--which sounds silly since it was a music video for our band."
