No Filter: Hayley Kiyoko Says Thanks for All the Bras

Once again, Wednesday has arrived and today we celebrate the Vapid Fluff celebrities of queer social media. This week, all anybody can talk about is Tessa Thompson and whether or not she’s actually dating Janelle Monáe (she denies it!). What do you guys think? Have we considered the possibility that these two could [ALLEGEDLY] be totally doin’ it but not putting labels on it because they’re both successful and very busy right now? Have we considered the possibility that maybe they’re just really private and backtracking? I have spent most of the week pondering the possibilities and mostly I’m just over here like:
Thought we could all take a few minutes out of our Wednesday to appreciate Kehlani’s dancers, who are all my camp crush.
Just a weekly update into how goodlooking Brittani Nichols is.

Relatedly, a weekly update into Rhea Butcher’s butt. In a respectful way.

I am a franchise now.

Our own Austen has requested that Hannah Gadsby be added to this column and I think we can all agree this is a great idea, especially since there are currently two of her. This photograph is not new but it’s still very important.
This is definitely not a Westworld host of Demi Lovato plotting her revenge upon all of humankind. Just a nice normal human Demi Lovato getting her makeup done.
Speaking of, here’s Evan back with another dramatic ’80s montage. I’d appreciate one of these each week from now until the end of time, please.

Three of my favorite things in one photo (spaghetti, wine and badass bi babes).
Listen, all your faves came to see Janelle Monáe and everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

Gaby Dunn is just as much of a sports fan as I am! Go…. whatever country Mika is rooting for! IDK! I like the field’s alternative lifestyle haircut!

I guess Paris Jackson started a band? So far it looks like they’re into lying on the ground with acoustic guitars, which is a genre I can get behind.

Approximately 42 of these were mine. I read once that Tom Jones has kept all the ladies’ underwear that’s been thrown at him over the years; nice to see that Hayley has found a better use for hers.
I wonder how many bras have been thrown at Tegan and Sara’s cats.

Join us next week, when we shall delve further into this fascinating query.

  1. Hayley Kiyoko fans: their cups runneth over with the support being given to her.

  2. I have donated my old bras to I Support The Girls and got an adorable thank you postcard.

    • Ooh do tell! They accept donations of old bras? I’ve been looking for places to donate mine and the only solution I ever came up with was to make a feminist art project bc I didn’t want them languishing at the Goodwill or ending up in a landfill

  3. There’s something truly amazing about bras being thrown at Hayley Kiyoko. Like I never thought this is a good idea but now I would throw all of mine amazing.
