  1. go hayley!i think its about time an out lesbian popsinger expresses her queer identity through lyrics and musicvideos. enough of the subtext. I adore her but here in germany she wont get played in radio or music tv stations at all. so I founded a germany hayley kiyoko site today spontantiously.
    please german,austrian, swizz autostraddle readers join the group and maybe even help marketing her in germany by contact your local radiostations ,mail+tweet VIVA,MTV,NICK to play her songs. of course you are welcome if youre not german, swizz or austrian, everybody is welcome to join to. but i try to make her known esp in my countrythat why the adressing to them. im so sick of the heteronormative lyrics and images on radio and TV.
