No Filter: Hayley Kiyoko Meets Her Hero!

Once more, we are gathered here to celebrate the week in queer celebrity Instagram. Last week you guys all yelled at me for not being on top of this EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MOMENT:

I KNOW, OKAY?!? I’m just as dead as you are.

In less earth-flattening news, Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne clearly no longer give a fuck about keeping their relationship “private” and honestly, who were they kidding anyway?

Yes, I know that Teddy Geiger has been getting more and more double posts lately – but honestly I just found this synth manual picture so attractive, I simply had to. These are the kinds of thirst traps that work on me.

This is so endearingly dorky that I can’t even tease them for it.

I love it when people meet their favorite musicians and Hayley Kiyoko meeting Emily from Metric is so sincere and sweet!

Your pal Evan Rachel Wood representing Posh Spice. She’s also spent this week advocating for survivors of sexual assault.

Kehlani has been pregnant for the last eighty years and as of publication, there is no end in sight.

Take this sweet baby to the diner and buy her a sandwich.

  1. I read the teaser quickly and thought that Hayley Kiyoko Met her hero Kristen Stewart and I was sooo confused.

    And I had to rewatch KStew and Janelle Monae video and again marvel at it. How did it happen? What did they talk about? How can they even exist in the same space?

    Janelle looks so open and sincere and KStew looks so “whatever, man” that my brain is kind of breaking trying to imagine them having a conversation.

    • “How can they even exist in the same space?” Exactly. The whole thing feels like a intercontinuity crossover event.

  2. Thanks for bringing us the queer fam news, Stef!

    Janelle is your glamorous distant cousin who you’d see once a year at family events growing up. She’d turn up with a close friend, and you desperately wanted to hang out with them, but somehow they always seemed to want to be left alone in a corner.

  3. Teddy Geiger is your geeky younger sister.

    No-one was more surprised than you when she grew up and got ALL the girls.

  4. Samira Wiley is the close cousin you hung out with growing up and who you told all your secrets to. She’s still your fave, and you would trust her with anything.

  5. Steph Beatriz is your older sister. She got in a LOT of trouble growing up but somehow is the one all the grandparents love the most. You try really hard not to be jealous of this, and the fact that years later, this is somehow still true.

  6. Haykey Kiyoko is your mom and she supports you and loves you and would do anything for you. When you write a book/ get an award you’re going to dedicate it to her.

    • ERWB is your non-identical twin. You really wish people would stop saying that they can’t believe you’re related.

  8. Kehlani is your mom Hayley Kiyoko’s cool sis.

    It’s always hysterical when your sweet mom comes up with comments that make your aunt blush…it should be surprising, but somehow isn’t.

    You can’t wait to meet your new niece-nephew-newnby!

  9. Brittani is your baby cousin who spends all their time in the treehouse and only 3 people have ever been allowed to see what’s up there.

    No, you still can’t go up there.

  10. Rutina is your great-grandchild.

    She is the future and you are amazed and grateful that you’ve lived this long to see her. You can rest content now.

    • I am trying to imagine my dad dreaming of being King Princess. My very kind-hearted but essentially conservative, balding, ex-military-kept-the-short-haircut dad.

      I will be snickering about this for the rest of the day. Thank you. :)

  11. PSA: Kirsten Stewart has instagram now (@ksforcharlie) –she talked about it in one of the other Charlie’s Angels actresses ig stories yesterday
