Miley Cyrus Launches #InstaPride to Share Stories of Transgender and Gender Expansive People

Pop star Miley Cyrus is using her media strength to aid the trans acceptance movement, by partnering with Instagram to help non-cis people share their stories.

The singer announced the #InstaPride hashtag on Monday (June 15) to get the conversation going.

Cyrus wrote on Instagram, accompanying a photo of smiley-faced balloons — a design that has become Miley’s logo lately.

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

Her Happy Hippie Foundation, an organisation that offers services to homeless and LGBT youth, also supports the effort. Miley, who has been vocal about her own gender fluidity recently, invited different people around the country to take part in the project. The first story revealed on the #InstaPride hashtag is of Leo Sheng, a transgender man who has been transitioning for the past year and a half.

For the past year and a half, my Instagram photos have been about my transition-filled life — graduating high school, starting college, making new connections. But the most obvious theme has been my transition from female to male. For me, a picture really does say a thousand words.”
