Hayley Kiyoko took part in the Friday (June 26) livestream for Stonewall Day, which found lesbian Jesus rallying the LGBTQ community and delivering a sublime cover of a Killers classic.

"It is our job for our generation to continue the fight and get lasting equality for the movement," Kiyoko said before launching into a gentle, irresistible cover of the Killers' "Mr. Brightside." She was joined by her band, all broadcasting footage from their homes, with most of them rocking shiny rainbow balloons as a backdrop.

After the killer cover, Kiyoko treated fans to her breakout "Girls Like Girls," bopping around in her home, proving you don't need an audience to get down. "I miss you all and I love you all – Happy Pride!" she said before wrapping up.
