Hayley Kiyoko Opens Up About How Putting a Label On Her Sexuality Helped So Many Others08/09/2019
Hayley Kiyoko rocks a cool double denim look for Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter’s Pride Summit on Thursday (August 8) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 28-year-old “I Wish” singer and musician is one of the cover stars of Billboard‘s latest issue, where she opened up about how putting a label on her sexuality helped so many others.
“I didn’t want a label at all, but once I released my music, there was this out pour of support for the fact that I did like girls,” Hayley recalled. “I learned that by embracing my label as a lesbian, I was helping normalize that for so many other people.”
She also spoke about her queer activism, saying that “sometimes you get overwhelmed: I’m not doing enough, I’m not saying enough. I just focus on keeping people alive.”
“If you can inspire hope and give light when people are in that darkness, they will help you make this world a better place.”
Hayley is also pictured with rising artist, Ximone, at Bumble’s “Empowered by Bumble Bizz” campaign at Lollapalooza last weekend.
