Miley Cyrus has combined her musical talents with her desire to spread awareness and love.
The singer teamed up with transgender rocker and Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace and rock legend Joan Jett for a moving performance of “Androgynous.”
The collaboration was part of Cyrus’s “Backyard Sessions” series, which is exclusive Facebook videos shot to help raise money for the singer’s recently-launched anti-homelessness, pro-LGBT Happy Hippie Foundation.
Miley posted the video of the trio singing “Androgynous” with the caption, “More #backyardsessions videos coming today!!

Cyrus also posted another video to Facebook from her Backyard Sessions of herself joining Laura Jane Grace and Against Me!’s Atom for their song, “True Trans Soul Rebel.”
“I’m fighting for people I don’t know,” Cyrus recently told Out, “but it’s also a fight for people I do know, and people I’m close to and love.”
What’s unique about these videos is they offer a “donate” button. Funds raised are used to create digital support groups for LGBT youth and their families.
“I’m the one that can fix it,” Miley told Good Morning America recently of the crises facing homeless young people. “I think I’ve been able to identify with it just because I’ve never thought of myself as, ‘I’m a girl and so I can’t do this, or I can do this, or you’ve got to be a boy to do that.’
“I feel completely like I’m not tied to a gender or to an age. I feel like an infinite cosmic thing, and that’s what I want people to feel…Forty percent of homelessness is really focused on [the LGBT community], because, I think, of the lack of acceptance.”
