Miley Cyrus Launches #InstaPride Campaign to Share Stories of the Transgender Community


The Happy Hippie Foundation creator launches an Instagram portrait series to celebrate transgender people.

Miley Cyrus continues to be the voice of the LGBT community.

Monday morning the singer and founder of the Happy Hippie Foundation announced the launch of her new #InstaPride portrait series, an Instagram based camapaign that helps celebrate the stories of transgender people.

"I'm launching #InstaPride today, in partnership with @Instagram, to share stories of transgender and gender expansive people from around the country," Cyrus wrote Monday morning. "Over the next 2 weeks, you'll meet them and the people in their lives who support them, as we highlight their stories of resilience #happyhippiepresents @happyhippiefdn."

She also introduced the first story of her new campaign, Leo, a transgender man from Michigan.

"I spent so much of my life uncomfortable with who I was and afraid to move because I didn't want to stand out any more than I already did. This last year as I've been transitioning, there've been a lot of moments when I truly felt free to be myself: the moment I woke up from top surgery, the day the bandages came off, my first shot of testosterone. Sometimes, I'll be out in public with my family or just hanging around with friends, and I remember that I'm no longer having to hide anything about who I am. I'm not afraid to move anymore and I know who I am. Everything about me right now is exactly as it should be." - @isupersheng

Last week Cyrus' cover story of Papermagazine was released where she talks about being open with her sexuality.

"I'm down with any adult," Cyrus told the mag. "Anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me. I don't relate to being boy or girl, and I don't have to have my partner relate to boy or girl."
