The two were present for the historic signing of the Respect for Marriage Act.

Same-sex marriage is for the girls!

Lesbian Jesus herself Hayley Kiyoko and her partner, former The Bachelor contestant Becca Tilley, were invited to the White House yesterday to be present for the historic signing of the Respect for Marriage Act.

President Joe Biden signed the act into law Tuesday, protecting marriage rights and recognition for both same-sex and interracial couples no matter what the Supreme Court does in the future. It also repeals the Defense of Marriage Act.

Several LGBTQ+ celebs were invited to the White House to celebrate, including RuPaul's Drag Race alum Brita Filter, and lesbian pop singer Hayley Kiyoko. Kiyoko posted about her visit on Instagram.

"I wish I could tell my younger self - a closeted biracial girl searching for acceptance - that one day I could live authentically and choose to legally marry whomever I love regardless of their race or sexual orientation," Kiyoko wrote along with pictures of her in a sharp blue suit and Tilley in a tan jacket. "The Respect for Marriage Act secures the safety of so many unions around the country, and it was an honor to be there today to witness history."

"Today was an excellent step towards progress," she continued. "At the same time, my LGBTQIA+ community is still very much under attack both abroad and at home. I look forward to the next steps we will take together to ensure continued justice for the entire queer community."

Kiyoko and Tilley met at Kiyoko's 2018 Expectations album release party, and spoke about their relationship in the media for the first time earlier this year when Tilley was featured in Kiyoko's music video for "For the Girls."
