"The position I'm in, I feel like I've got a lot of power," explained Miley. "But so many kids don't feel that way. They're under their parents' rule. When you have all eyes on you, what are you saying? And that's what I had to ask myself a lot."
Why is she seeking to help homeless youth and LGBT young people? Because they are particularly vulnerable, revealed Miley.
"It's something that everyone sees," she clarified. "It's like the birds chirping. We're consciously ignoring it at all times, but it's always happening right in front of us."
And Cyrus felt heartbroken by the suicide of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn.
As the Inquisitr reported, many celebrities spoke out after Leelah's death. Among them was 22-year-old activist Stephen Ira, son of Annette Bening and Warren Beatty.
He reflected on what happened to Alcorn after she killed herself when her parents refused to let her transition.
"One of the last things leelah alcorn did in her life was tell another trans girl on tumblr that she was beautiful," tweeted Ira following the news of Leelah's death.
The 22-year-old also addressed the issue of parents who are upset when their child comes out.
"…really confused when parents 'mourn' when their kid comes out as trans, like, your kid didn't die, they're right there and they're the exact same person…if anything, they've gained a kid now that their child feels comfortable enough to come out."
