Hayley Kiyoko, the pop star who has been dubbed "lesbian jesus" by her dedicated followers, has worked relentlessly to make both her music and concerts a safe haven for LGBT fans.

And she lived up to that title recently, helping high school teenager Kassie ask her girlfriend, Nia, to prom in an epic surprise promposal.

When Kassie, a high school student from Fairfield, Connecticut, scrolled by a tweet from Fuse TV offering up a Kiyoko promposal she jumped at the opportunity to surprise her girlfriend of nearly six months.

Out of the many submissions, hers was selected.

"Hayley's music means a lot to us. It's not just listening to her music — Hayley also creates these amazing music videos with LGBT couples, and just to have that representation is incredible," Kassie told BuzzFeed News.

Kassie, who came out to her friends and family last July, also mentioned sleepovers where the two would watch Kiyoko music videos together.

"Hayley's music shows us that being a woman dating a woman is okay! And that it should be a normal and common thing to see."


Meanwhile, Nia was told she would be participating in an interview about their school's Gender and Sexuality Alliance — she had no clue what was really going on.

"As the video was playing I was engulfed with excitement, happiness, and nervousness," Kassie said. "Excited for the promposal to happen, happy because, honestly, how many people get Hayley Kiyoko to ask your date to prom for you?"

"Going to prom with Nia means that I get to spend one long and amazing night with a person I love and not have to feel bad about it," Kassie said of the upcoming big dance.
