Openly queer singer-actress Hayley Kiyoko has joined HRC’s Equality Rocks campaign.

Openly queer singer, songwriter, director, actress and rising popstar Hayley Kiyoko has joined HRC’s Equality Rocks campaign.

Kiyoko got her start on “CSI: Cyber.” Since breaking out — and coming out — with her 2015 track “Girls Like Girls,” Kiyoko has released a slew of unapologetically queer pop bops on her new album Expectations, where she sings about women using she/her pronouns. She has also established herself as a visionary with her self-directed music videos.

In cities across the country, fans line up to have her sign rainbow flags and hear songs such as “Curious” and “What I Need.”

“I think that it's exciting and inspiring that people are able to connect to these stories," she told fellow queer R&B singer, songwriter and "What I Need" collaborator Kehlani in a recent interview for Fader. "To be able to share that with other people is such a beautiful thing. I never really had that community growing up.”

HRC’s Equality Rocks campaign is sparking a conversation about love, fairness and equality around the globe. To join, visit
