Hayley Kiyoko: Girls Like Girls

"Girls like girls like boys do, nothing new."

This video came out in 2015 but it will never stop being relevant. Hayley Kiyoko's lyrics are beautiful on their own, but this video is the perfect depiction of what it can be like to be a girl who likes girls. She makes you feel the secrecy, the fear, the pain-- but also the joy and love. With almost 60 million views, this video is a great example of how important representation is. There is still a harmful stigma around girls liking girls- it's either sexualized or dismissed all together. Artists like Kiyoko help dissolve this stigma and show what these relationships are actually like. Girls that like girls exist- and they are much more than your diluted idea of them.
