Move over Heartstopper, Hayley Kiyoko is ready to make one for the girls!

The “Feelings” singer took to TikTok recently to address a fan post saying that her music video for “Girls Like Girls” was their version of Heartstopper, Netflix’s popular angsty but uplifting series about queer teen boys, back when it dropped in 2015.

In case you’ve forgotten, the story-driven music video tells the tale of a girl (Stefanie Scott) who is in love with her friend (Kelsey Chow), despite the latter having a douchey and controlling boyfriend. Things heat up between them but the bf intervenes in a brief moment of violence, showing his true colors. But the ladies win out in the end.

The video is an aesthetically pleasing ode to queer longing and uncertainty, following familiar tropes while breathing new life into a well-trodden tale -- and actually giving us a happy ending.

It also absolutely could have served as a proof of concept short for a feature-length story — the numbers on the video, the splash it made at the time, and the way it’s still resonating with fans today prove that.

And Hayley couldn’t agree more.

“It blows my mind in the most amazing way that seven years after ‘Girls Like Girls’ you all are so connected and invested into the story and the characters,” she said. “It’s been a dream of mine to make it into a movie but it is so hard to get a movie made. It’s so challenging, especially when the movie is about queer love that ends in hope.”

But fan support is a great way to make things happen, and Hayley suggested that if people want to see a “Girls Like Girls” movie, they need to speak up.

“There’s so many people to convince and honestly I can’t do it alone. We started this together and if you want to see a movie made about ‘Girls Like Girls,’ now is the time to let me know,” she said.

Forget what we want, we NEED this movie. So, where do we send all of our money?
