Hayley Kiyoko will be awarded for LGBT activism


Hayley Kiyoko will receive The Trevor Project’s Youth Innovator Award for her LGBT+ advocacy, at the charity’s biannual fundraising gala TrevorLIVE. One of the most famous lesbian singers on the modern stage will be awarded for using her spotlight to raise public awareness of the struggles of the marginalized communities on November 17. And not only because she is an out lesbian who sings about it, but because she acts in support of those in need. The music video for her 2016 song ‘One Bad Night’ highlighted violence against trans women, and when bras were thrown as her on stage during her Expectations tour she donated them to homeless queer youth and women. According to Billboard, The Trevor Project’s CEO Amit Paley said that it is important to have artists like Kiyoko on stage for young queer listeners to feel represented and motivated to succeed in whatever they want. “Hayley embraces her identity as a strength, serving as a role model for LGBTQ youth around the world – we’re so excited to honor her at TrevorLIVE LA and celebrate 21 years of saving young LGBTQ lives.” Paley added
