Sometimes I forget that even though we're in 2018 and I'd like to think people accept everyone for who they are, we're still in a transitional period. Like when an artist such as Hayley Kiyoko is singing about loving girls- it's not shocking, but it is different than the mainstream artists we hear every day. It took me talking to her to realize that even though I consider myself a major ally, there's still a grey area in talking about it all without insulting anyone.
Hayley is becoming an icon for queer girls everywhere because of her music.. and while she didn't set out to be a life-changer or an eye opener, it's happening naturally.
I had a lot of fun talking to her and trying to get a definition for her nickname "Lesbian Jesus" and the trouble with dating complicated/shady girls. This is definitely a girl for us all to watch.
Check out the quick convo below.. along with her song "Curious" and some 😍😍 photos of her!
