Happy Valentine’s Day from #2G1P!
Before Tinder, Grindr, J-Date, and Christian Mingle, most of us just had a Myspace page and the dream of finding true love in a sea of extremely emo profile pics.
Megan (from the U.S.) and Whitney (from the U.K.) started a long-distance relationship there, which blossomed against all odds into an international marriage, a TV appearance on Say Yes to the Dress, and a media empire focused on empowering LGBTQ couples. Their story is a beacon of hope that yes, long distance relationships can have a happy ending, thanks to the power of the internet.
This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) chat with Megan and Whitney (collectively known as “WEGAN”) about their journey, their vision for the future of internet-first love, and their disgustingly cute plans for Valentine’s Day.
