Roberta Glennon-Rule, a 16-year-old student at Everett High School in Lansing, Michigan, wore a neon tank with the words “LEGALIZE GAY!” on it to school yesterday. Roberta, who describes herself as an active supporter of the LGBT community and a performer at the gay pride festivals in her town, says a security guard told her that her shirt was inappropriate almost as soon as she got to school. Within five minutes of walking into school, “a security guard told me to take it off,” she told Cosmopolitan.com. At first, Roberta thought the security guard called out her tank top because the width of its straps violated the dress code. Instead, she says he told her that what it said was offensive. “I was like, ‘Um, I don’t have anything to cover it up, and even if I did, I wouldn’t.’ And I walked away,” Roberta said. Her friends encouraged her to tweet about her experience, so she immediately posted the above tweet with her middle finger up. In response, Miley Cyrus fan groups began DMing her on Twitter and told her they were trying to get Miley to see Roberta’s tweet. They succeeded, and Roberta ended up talking to Miley on the phone within 2.5 hours of posting the tweet. (Miley’s rep confirmed to Cosmopolitan.com that Miley spoke to Roberta.) “It was absolutely crazy,” Roberta said. “I’ve been obsessed with her since Hannah Montana.” The night before this all happened, Roberta had actually been on the site for the Happy Hippie Foundation, a nonprofit organization Miley founded to help homeless and LGBTQ youth, looking to buy a sweatshirt. Miley told her she should buy one in every color.

A Happy Hippie op-ed
by Miley Cyrus
In December of last year, Leelah Alcorn, a young transgender girl, committed suicide. It hit me as hard as if I had known her. I felt connected to her. For a year, my focus has been on helping homeless youth, and it was heartbreaking to hear that 40 percent of homeless teens identify as LGBT. The more I learned about what life can be like as a transgender person, the more I realized how especially woven into homelessness that is. Acceptance is a huge step towards eradicating youth homelessness. Being who you are and who you want to be has nothing to do with gender, sexuality, body type, race, or age.
I haven’t been quiet or shy about discrimination issues towards the LGBT community because by alienating people, it makes it harder to work, live in society, have a home, have a family, and can result in homelessness. I wanted to learn more about other challenges in the LGBT community, like violence against transgender women, HIV/AIDS and family condemnation. Anything beautiful on this planet takes time, and with time comes change. That’s why I’m launching the Happy Hippie Foundation — because every life is valuable and we should make sure those who question their value feel protected.

Happy Hippie Support Groups will provide a personal, moderated, safe and affirming experience, no matter where you live. They will be a place for young people to get information and help, reaching people who don’t have access to physical support groups (whether it’s because support groups are not available in their geographic area or because of other barriers, like stigma or fear). Support groups will also connect young people with direct referrals for legal and medical resources, as well as resources for family, schools and religious communities.
Why digital support groups? Because Happy Hippies are committed to helping youth achieve positive outcomes in life and acceptance helps promote self-esteem, well-being, and overall general health for LGBT young people! Experts explain that support groups promote resilience and enable LGBT youth to connect to peers, which counters the stigma they experience on a daily basis.
Every $15 provides digital support groups for one youth for a year. Donate here to help provide critical support services to LGBT youth!
LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Miley Cyrus wears pasties or posts photos of her pink armpits, it’s not to be a provocateur. The 22-year-old says she’s just being herself, and she wants all young people to have that same opportunity.
That’s why she’s launching the Happy Hippie Foundation to help homeless and LGBT youth, adding that not all her past relationships were “straight, heterosexual” ones. Cyrus didn’t elaborate.
“The position I’m in, I feel like I’ve got a lot of power,” she said in a Monday phone interview with The Associated Press. “But so many kids don’t feel that way. They’re under their parents’ rule.”

From bringing a homeless teen onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards to slamming the Indiana governor over the state’s controversial religious freedom law, Miley Cyrus isn’t afraid to tackle pressing social issues head on. With that in mind, the Bangerz singer has established the Happy Hippie Foundation, an organization that aims to bring awareness towards issues affecting homeless youth and other vulnerable populations such as the LGBT youth community.
To help raise funds and awareness for her new foundation, Cyrus has teamed with Facebook for the Backyard Sessions, which will find the singer teaming with another artist for a unique performance filmed in Cyrus’ own backyard. Joan Jett, Ariana Grande, Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace and Melanie Safka are among the artists who will collaborate with Cyrus for the sessions. Each video will debut exclusively on Facebook with an option to donate toward the Happy Hippie Foundation.
