Why Miley Cyrus Doesn't Feel Tied To Gender Or Age

She wants everyone to join in.

Miley Cyrus officially launched her nonprofit organization The Happy Hippie Foundation on May 5, 2015. 

Their mission is "to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations." 

And it all begins with her "backyard sessions" where Cyrus and star pals like Ariana Grande, Joan Jett and other vocal powerhouses jam for the cause.

People first took notice of her advocacy work when she brought Jesse Helt, a young man who was living in a homeless shelter, as her guest to the 2014 VMAs where he accepted her award on behalf of LGBT youth. 

According to Happy Hippie's site, a staggering 40 percent of homeless young people identify as LGBT.

Cyrus said she's able to identify with the cause because she doesn't feel tied to gender or age, describing herself as more part of an "infinite cosmic thing."

She's been working locally with homeless youth and the LGBT community, but now wants to take Happy Hippie national, and, eventually, global.

The star doesn't want to sing just for herself, she wants to use her voice as a platform for something that matters.

In her interview with ABC News, the singer revealed that she used to feel like she didn't fit in, but that she loves herself now. She wants to help others feel the same way through the help of the foundation. 

The Happy Hippie site offers support, education and ways for the public to get involved. You can also get the Happy Hippie tee or hoodie there.

Watch Cyrus explain why this issue is so important to her in the interview below. 

Help Miley Cyrus spread the word. Everyone should be allowed to be different.
