The #InstaPride campaign aims to promote awareness and acceptance of people who are transgender, gender queer and gender non-conforming.

"I'm launching #InstaPride today, in partnership with @Instagram, to share stories of transgender and gender expansive people from around the country. Over the next 2 weeks, you'll meet them and the people in their lives who support them, as we highlight their stories of resilience," she posted on Instagram.
