Miley Cyrus Initiative: #InstaPride

Miley Cyrus has made a lot of noise lately about her gender flexibility, and now she's putting her money -- or at least her camera -- where her mouth is.

Cyrus and her Happy Hippie Foundation has launched #InstaPride, a new Instagram site that encourages members of the LGBTQ community to "share stories of transgender and gender expansive people from around the country.

Over the next two weeks, you'll meet them and the people in their lives who support them, as we highlight their stories of resilience." Cyrus posted a first series of photos on Monday (June 15).

The #InstaPride campaign comes a week after Cyrus posted some of her own art inspired by Caitlyn Jenner's recent Vanity Fair magazine cover.
