“To the black girls in the back row at live shows, to the queer girls still figuring it out, to the Midwestern kids who have yet to find a home in their bodies—it’s time to press play on our happy endings.

RISE TO THE SUN: Four days. Two girls. One life-changing music festival.” (From the author’s twitter)
