A former child acting star (with credits for both Disney and Nickelodeon) turned pop star, Hayley Kiyoko’s ownership of and pride in her LGBTQ identity has lead her fans to dub her ‘Lesbian Jesus’. Her main single, Girls Like Girls, features the line “Girls like girls like boys do – nothing new” and her activism in both her lyrics and general persona, as well as her slick, R’n’B influenced pop, makes her a very modern popstar. After her debut album Expectations dropped last year, she comes to Stockholm on tour in February.
