Bria Michelle Kam (born November 3, 1986) and Chrissy Emily Chambers (born October 5, 1990), better known by their stage name BriaAndChrissy, are a singing and acting lesbian duo best known for their YouTube channels BriaAndChrissy and Lesbian Love, where they perform original songs, comedy skits, and promote awareness for LGBT rights. Also known as the “Lesbian Duo,” the two are a real-life lesbian couple whose videos and songs focus on a variety of social issues including same-sex marriage advocacy and anti-bullying. Their professional collaboration began on YouTube in 2012 with a political satire music video featuring the couple dressed as Mitt and Ann Romney.
Originally from Mississippi, Chambers relocated to Atlanta, Georgia where she acted in commercials, television, and film before teaming up with Kam. Prior to their collaboration, Kam, a singer/songwriter from Atlanta, put out a solo album titled A Long Time Coming and was a contestant for the 11th season of American Idol, appearing in front of judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson before being eliminated.
The couple has appeared in articles, interviews, and videos on pop culture and news media sites, including BuzzFeed and The Point with Ana Kasparian. In 2014, the couple appeared in Demi Lovato's music video for the song "Really Don't Care," and Kam appeared on the MTV television show Copycat where she performed a cover of the song "Blown Away." In June 2014, GO Magazine named BriaAndChrissy number 38 on their annual list of "100 Women We Love" calling them "YouTube´s most-viewed lesbian couple." The couple was also named one of The Advocate's "40 Under 40" for 2014 for their positive representation of LGBT identity on social media.
In December 2014 BriaAndChrissy released their first music video for the song "Take Me to Heaven" from the album Face Your Fears. In an interview with Kelly Morris of The Seattle Lesbian, the couple said they wanted to reflect a more serious side to their advocacy for LGBT acceptance. Of the video, Chambers said “We do a lot of ridiculous videos, but we want [our viewers] to also see how serious and passionate we are in our hearts. Bria is my heaven and our love is very genuine and true.” The couple currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
