Taylor Swift brought ‘Lesbian Jesus’ Hayley Kiyoko on stage, because #20GayTeen is amazing
Taylor Swift has brought Hayley Kiyoko on stage and performed lesbian love song “Curious” with her, because it’s #20GayTeen and we’re thriving.
The performance at the 66,000-capacity Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts marked Hayley’s first-ever stadium appearance—and the fans went wild.
Taylor publicly supported Hayley earlier this year when the singer, who has been dubbed “Lesbian Jesus” by fans, spoke out about homophobia music industry.
And last night (July 26), at the home of the New England Patriots, Taylor reportedly revealed that she was a follower of our lesbian lord and savour, saying: “This is someone whose music I’m absolutely obsessed with.”
The “Delicate” singer then told the crowd: “This is someone who I think is one of the most exciting new artists out here. And she’s here to play for you tonight.
“I’m really serious about this, it’s her first time in a stadium. Is it going to be the loudest stadium?”
We can’t say how vocal the crowd was, but Hayley was pretty damn thrilled, as she made clear on Instagram, writing: “DO NOT KNOW HOW TO COMPREHEND WHAT JUST HAPPENED.
“PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU.”
And we can confirm that fans were at peak excitement—which they made fully clear.

Another utilised a popular meme to say, correctly, that “taylor swift bringing hayley kiyoko onstage as a surprise guest at gillette raised millions for the lgbt.”

And all credit to that same person, who popularised—if not coined—the term “Repugaytion tour.”
Let’s all take a moment to be extremely jealous of everyone who was present for the special moment, such as this fan.
“Tonight, I was 3 feet away from Taylor Swift, made eye contact with her, and was blessed by a surprise appearance from Lesbian Jesus aka @HayleyKiyoko like WHAT A GREAT NIGHT,” they wrote.

The shock was palpable, causing one person to say: “Well damn I don’t think any of us were expecting a performance with Hayley Kiyoko…she really did that huh?”

She really did, and it looks like it was spectacular.
Earlier this month, Hayley revealed that she knew she was gay at six years old.
The Disney-star-turned-queer-icon broke the internet last year with an Instagram post in which she kissed Chanel Celaya, who played “Headphones Girl” in her “Gravel To Tempo” video.
The singer also released the video for her lesbian love song “Feelings,” in which she dances, sings and flirts with a woman on a deserted street.
And earlier this year, Hayley and fellow queer singer Kehlani shared a beautiful kiss in the music video for “What I Need.”
