Taz and Alessia run a couples account together and show the world that LGBTQIA+ couples are exactly like everyone else! In just under 3 years they have already built their TikTok following to over 740,000 people from all over the world. Through the use of live-streaming Taz and Alessia have built a family-like following with their amazing audience (Team TANDA), which allows them to have the privilege of creating content & making people smile on a daily basis! Most recently during the COVID lockdowns, Taz and Alessia designed, built and released an App for their community. Paid subscribers to the app get perks like monthly online events, behind the scenes content, private live-streams, forums & more! The App is called TeamTANDA and it is available on the Apple & Google Play store.
Taz and Alessia join me to deep dive into what it is like to be a creator couple, how they can work together in their own strengths, and build an incredible community that feels like family. We break down the challenges and struggles facing creators and how to successfully share the content that makes you thrive without killing your following and views.

Refinery29 - Taz & Alessia Are Using Their TikTok Fame To Challenge Stereotypes About Lesbians
24 FEBRUARY 2023
"Something that we've definitely tried not to contribute to is the over-sexualisation of lesbian couples," Zammit tells Refinery29 Australia, explaining that TV shows and movies have so often fetishised queer women — a narrative that needs to stop.
Allfree explains that when the couple first started live-streaming their content, they were bombarded in the comments section with strangers asking them to kiss on-screen. Not only did they believe that doing so would have fuelled the hyper-sexualisation of lesbian women, but it made the pair feel as though they were being asked to prove they're really dating.
"Almost every second comment was like, 'Kiss, kiss!' and we had to ban the word [from being allowed in our comments]," says Allfree. "So, because they were asking us for it, we were like, 'That's a bit strange so let's block the word but also, why would we feel the need to prove our relationship to you?'"
