#20GayTeen is living up to its title.

All it took was one tweet by Hayley Kiyoko, aka Lesbian Jesus, at the start of the year to start a social and cultural movement across the world. In fact, it's probably the most important movement in the history of mankind since the enlightenment.

It's called #20GayTeen and, in essence, it's the gay agenda in action. The gays are taking over and there's fuck all anyone can do about it now. Don't even THINK about resisting. We're too gay and powerful.

Truly.

Think it's just a hashtag? Well think again. Here's the proof that #20GayTeen is literally taking over.

1. Ellen Page kicked off #20GayTeen by announcing her marriage to Emma Portner.

We're not crying you are.

2. Hayley Kiyoko coming for ya girl in the 'Curious' video.

Look up your daughters, Hayley is here and queer and looking to steal your gurl.

3. Troye Sivan serving power twink realness in the 'My! My! My!' video.

Literally had my second gay awakening after watching this video.

4. And then Troye revealed he's recorded new music with Carly Rae Jepsen. *screams in gay*

Oh, and the artist he's actually collaborated with on his next album? Ariana Grande. NBD.

5. Black Lightning's badass lesbian superhero gets a girlfriend.

We ship it.

6. Aja's death drop on All Stars 3.

Sure, the whole season was great, but it was Aja's gold medal-worthy death drop off a box on episode 1 that stole the show.

7. Timothée Chalamet was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his role in Call Me By Your Name.

Yes, Timothée is straight, but his incredible performance as Elio in Call Me By Your Name helped propel this small, LGBTQ movie to a global audience. And for that, Timothée should be awarded an honorary membership to The Gays. Someone send him a gay card asap.

8. Courtney Act wins Celebrity Big Brother UK.

Drag Race alum Courtney Act spent most of her time in the house educating her housemates and the UK public on gender and identity politics and, less intentionally, what a tuck actually looks like.

Watch Courtney Act talk about her experiences on CBB when she appeared on PopBuzz Presents.

9. Queer Eye gets a modern makeover on Netflix and The Fab Five win the hearts and minds of millions.

We stan The Fab Five and are eternally grateful for this GIF of Jonathan Van Ness and all the memes.

10. Adam Rippon at the Winter Olympics.

Rippon won a bronze medal in the figure skating team event as part of the U.S. team at the Winter Olympics, making him the United States’ first openly gay athlete to win a medal at any Winter Olympics. His sass on Twitter when responding to homophobes is equally as iconic tbh.

11. Years & Years returned with a homosexual anthem, 'Sanctify'.

Oh, and we asked Olly Alexander how he was going to up the ante in #20GAYTEEN. Asking all the important questions here at PopBuzz.

12. Love, Simon becomes the first big-budget teen film that has a gay love story at its heart.

Love, Simon isn't perfect but it's reaching an audience that most gay films can't. And it's finally giving young queer kids the kind of representation that they deserve.

13. Talking about Love, Simon, #20GayTeen blessed us with Keiynan Lonsdale.

💫 @terroirmagazine feature out now.

A post shared by 🌊❤️💫🌸 Keiynan Lonsdale 🔑🎶🍭🌱 (@keiynanlonsdale) on

The Love, Simon star has been opening up about his sexuality and released a song called 'Kiss The Boy'. #20GayTeen strikes again!

14. Miss Vanjie, Miss Vanjie, Miss Vanjie!

Never has there been an exit, or a contestant, as instantly iconic as Miss Vanjie on Drag Race. The memes are out of control and probably won't stop until we're all dead and buried in our gay graves.

15. One Day at a Time is renewed for a third season by Netflix.

In this house we stan Elena Alvarez.

16. Cheryl & Toni's kiss in Riverdale.

Cheryl's bisexuality storyline during Riverdale's second season touched upon important issues like family rejection and conversion therapy. It all came to a triumphant peak when Toni rescues Cheryl from the Sisters of the Quiet Mercy and they kiss each other in front of Veronica, much to the delight of Choni shippers the world over.

17. Former Disney star Alyson Stoner came out as bisexual.

ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!

18. Kacey Musgraves released 'Rainbow', a love letter to her LGBTQ fans.

We need a collab with Trixie Mattel ASAP.

19. Demi Lovato and Kehlani kissed on stage and #20GayTeen officially peaked.

Yaaaasssssss!

20. Drag queens Farrah Moan and Shea Coulee clap back at homophobes in a kebab shop in Newcastle.

"We're touring the world being gay while you're living in Newcastle with your crusty ass eyelashes" - Farrah Moan, 2018.

21. Blockers, a Hollywood comedy featuring a prominent lesbian storyline, earns MILLIONS at the box office.

Blockers features a lesbian character called Sam (played by Gideon Adlon), a high school student who's made a pledge with her two best friends to lose their virginity, except she's actually in the closet about her true sexuality. Not only is the film hilarious, it deals with Sam's storyline in such a refreshingly normalised way. It's neither overstated or understated.

22. Janelle Monáe introduced the world to bisexual lighting and then wrote an ode to vaginas.

Janelle took the concept of #2OGAYTEEN and fucking ran with it all the way to Venus.

23. Kesha officiated a same-sex wedding in the video for 'I Need A Woman To Love'.

Best. Wedding. Ever.
