The Fight For Justice : Miley Cyrus Vs Homophobia
The month of June is always filled with people coming together to celebrate queerness and Pride Month. This year, Covid-19 hampered many parades affecting so many from the LGBTQ community. However, this temporary roadblock did not last long as many celebrities stepped forward to fight for LGBTQ rights and spread awareness. From Actor Alexandra Ship to Janelle Marie and Singer Miley Cyrus, stars broke the bubble and started vocalizing their support for the LGBTQ community.
Singer Miley Cyrus took to social media to spread awareness and send out a blanket statement for this year’s Pride parade. Uploading pictures on Instagram the singer said, ” Stop Homophobia whenever and wherever you see it”. The singer and all-time Disney star announced in a 2016 Variety issue that her personal journey took place through an LGBTQ center. Miley Cyrus also started a foundation called, ” Happy Hippie Foundation ” which was also tagged in her post. The Happy Hippie Foundation is now celebrating its 5th anniversary. The foundation was begun on behalf of the LGBTQ community to fight the injustice that still prevails.
In addition to her caption, Miley has been vocal about her experiences stating, ” Looking at them, there were both beautiful and sexy and tough but vulnerable and feminine but masculine, I related to this person, more than I related to anyone in my life”. We could not agree more with this statement.
Miley Cyrus has never stepped back from embracing the LGBTQ community, always vocalizing and fighting for the same rights as everyone else. The star’s mission statement for her organization is, ” People who say WE can’t change the world ARE wrong. We will make some noise and cause a scene ! We challenge each other and the world & will stop pointless judgment”.
With the start of a grueling year, the theme of love and acceptance resonated with the Pride Movement should continue to be at the forefront of our battle against social injustice. Miley Cyrus and her fight against Homophobia tops the charts of important movements in the LGBTQ community.
