Hayley is gracing the cover of ‘Gay Times‘ December 2018 issue.

Singer/songwriter and actress, Hayley Kiyoko, recently sat down with ‘Gay Times‘ magazine for their December 2018 issue and discussed being apart of the LGBTQ+ community and much more.

Speaking on reaching out to her queer fans and being apart of the community, Hayley said “It’s really empowering. It makes me emotional… We all go through tough times accepting ourselves and to be able to know so many people accept me for who I am – I just feel like we all want that validation and to be able to love yourself.”

She continued, “You’re wanting people to approve so then you can feel free to be who you are. My fans are able to give me that, and I try to give them that energy straight back to them – give them that space to love themselves, and to feel open and free.”

Hayley also discussed her summer appearance on Taylor Swift’s 2018 tour, saying “It was a really touching moment to have someone of her status to validate my work, and give me a stamp of approval.”
