Singer Miley Cyrus has launched a new campaign to highlight issues faced by transgender young people.

Cyrus and her Happy Hippie Foundation, have teamed up with Instagram to launch the #InstaPride campaign.

It will feature stories of young transgender people, and issues they ahve faced.

In a post on Instagram, she writes, “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.”

The star revealed she had dated men and women last month, when she said: “There are times in my life where I’ve had boyfriends or girlfriends.

“I’m not hiding my sexuality. For me, I don’t want to label myself as anything.

“We love putting people in categories, but what I like sexually isn’t going to label me as a person.”

Cyrus launched the Happie Hippie Foundation last year.
