i’m so fucking grateful to hayley kiyoko for unapologetically singing songs about girls & having romantic feelings for girls & girls being in love.
like, i honestly feel like she’s following in the footsteps of tegan & sara and in a lot of ways surpassing them. her unapologetic & brave use of she/her pronouns in her songs are groundbreaking and i am so grateful to her and the music she’s making.
like… when i was a struggling, abused 15-16 year old living in a homophobic household tegan & sara saved my life. their songs about loss & love & breaking up carried me through because i knew they were women like me. because i knew that those songs were written especially for women like us.
and i’m so glad that another lbpq female artist has come into popularity and will help this generation of gay & bi girls know they aren’t alone, their feelings aren’t invalid, that the things they’re feeling are normal and beautiful and okay.
