Miley Cyrus Turns Gender Roles on Their Heads with New Instagram Campaign

It seems that the quest to squash the gender binary begins with a magazine cover these days. After posing with her pig (and not much else) on this month’s Paper Magazine, Miley Cyrus pulled a Caitlyn Jenner and revealed a non-conforming gender identity, coupled with a campaign to help celebrate everyone on the spectrum.

Yesterday she launched #InstaPride, a project in partnership with Instagram to encourage transgender, gender fluid and agender individuals to share their stories and give them a platform for positive exposure. So far the submissions have ranged from personal portraits to inspirational quotes to cereal art spam.

#InstaPride is an extension of Miley Cyrus’s The Happy Hippie Foundation, founded to aid homeless LGBTQ youth. This all comes on the heels of Cyrus uncovering huge revelations about her own sexuality and gender, saying she crosses all boundaries in both respects, admitting to Paper, “I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl.”

She’s not a boy or a girl. She’s just bein’ Miley.
