Miley Cyrus launches #InstaPride campaign starring LGBT youth she photographed
Miley Cyrus has teamed up with Instagram for a very special (and beautiful) campaign called Happy Hippie Presents #InstaPride, which aims to raise awareness for a variety of issues faced by the LGBT community.

The 22-year-old was asked to shoot portraits of awesome youth who identify as transgender, genderqueer and gender non-conforming and tell their stories via images and words on her Instagram.

"I’m launching #InstaPride today, in partnership with @Instagram, to share stories of transgender and gender expansive people from around the country," she wrote. "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."

“Anyone should be able to express how they feel, without question, and be able to live,” Cyrus added in an interview with TIME. “And use the f**king public restrooms.” A-freaking-men. *high five*
