Miley Cyrus Takes “Agender” Date Tyler Ford To amfAR New York Inspiration Gala – SEE PHOTOS
Miley Cyrus took Tyler Ford, whom she described on Instagram as a “queer, biracial agender person,” as her date to the amfAR New York Inspiration gala at which she’s being honored on Tuesday. Cyrus announced earlier on Tuesday that Ford would be going with her to the black-tie event at the Spring Studios. Sharing a photo of Ford, Cyrus wrote in the caption, “Meet Tyler, a 24 year old living in New York City, and my date for @amfar tonight!!! Tyler is a queer, biracial, agender person, whose pronouns are they/them/theirs.”
Cyrus continued in her Instagram post, “Tyler shares about their identity, experiences and hopes saying: ‘My whole life, I was led to believe that there were only two genders. I thought I had to shrink myself to fit into a box that was never going to contain me. It took years for me to find words for my gender identity, and to feel comfortable expressing myself as I am.’”
As Gossip Cop reported, Cyrus and Andy Cohen are both being honored at the gala for their contributions towards AIDS awareness. On Monday, Cyrus launched “#InstaPride,” which will highlight on Instagram the stories of transgender people. It’s all part of Cyrus’ Happy Hippie Foundation, which was created to increase awareness about the homeless and LBGT communities.
