Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is doing what she can in the fight for equality.

The 22-year-old star has collaborated with Instagram for the Happy Hippie Presents #InstaPride project, a portrait series aimed to increase awareness of people across the gender spectrum.

The portraits and the people in them are meant to serve as positive examples for young people who might be struggling, as well as reference points for those who might not personally know anyone who doesn't feel at home in their own body.

"Anyone should be able to express how they feel, without question, and be able to live," Cyrus told Time. "And use the f---ing public restrooms.

"People...are not living their lives because people are telling them what to be... I can stand on a stage with my t--s out," she said. "It's so unfair that I'm allowed to be like this and there are two men that can't get married in f---ing Nashville right now."

On Monday, Cyrus debuted the first photos from the campaign, featuring Leo, a 19-year-old student from Michigan.

The series of photos also incorporate the color yellow to represent happiness and because the color is not stereotypically associated with a gender, like pink or blue.

The project will feature about a dozen subjects, with the photos debuting on Instagram with the #InstaPride hashtag.
