Disney-star-turned-queer-icon Hayley Kiyoko has broken the internet with a wonderfully gay Instagram post.

The singer, dubbed ‘Lesbian Jesus’ by some fans, recently began posting behind-the-scenes clips and photos from past video shoots ahead of her releasing new music.

One of her most-loved videos, Gravel To Tempo, involves Hayley’s character repeatedly dancing in front of a group of female students.

And one actress in particular caught fans’ eyes: Chanel Celaya, who plays ‘Blake’ – better known as ‘Headphones Girl.”

Since the release of the video, fans have called for Hayley and Chanel’s characters to be brought together romantically in the canon of the story.

Now, they have got more than they ever imagined.

While posting a compilation of Instagram videos yesterday while hanging out with Chanel, Hayley uploaded one captioned ‘Blake 4 the win’…

In which they kissed.

Fans were elated, thanking Hayley for being so passionate and supportive of her LGBT+ fans and their need for validation and representation.


Aaaaaaand cue more queer flailing.


Even Chanel got involved, sharing an adorable post of her own.

Considering her numerous past interactions with the queer community, it’s no surprise that Hayley has once again gone out of her way to please fans.

She’s been refreshingly open about her own sexuality, much to fans’ delight.

Hayley is generally outspoken in her support for LGBT+ people.

Last year, she told Paper Magazine that her music reassures fans “that they aren’t alone – that their feelings are valid, that they are enough and they will find someone to love them back.

“I didn’t have that hope growing up, so I get emotional and inspired (or encouraged) every time I meet a fan who looks at me that way.”

She has made it clear she wants her art to reflect queer love in a positive way – and she’s doing an amazing job so far.
