13. Miley Cyrus
To say that Miley Cyrus took the world by storm during her Hannah Montana days would be an understatement. Her Disney Channel series blossomed into a massive franchise, spawning a line of toys, books and video games. But that's just the beginning. In 2010, she released her album Can't Be Tamed, which marked a shift in her career. Since then, Cyrus has released five additional albums, with her most recent release, Endless Summer Vacation, charting in multiple countries.
Aside from her musical success, Cyrus has gone above and beyond to fight for LGBTQIA+ people and gender-nonconforming youth. In 2014, the singer launched the Happy Hippie Foundation to “rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations.” The singer has also released quite a few LGBTQIA+-friendly songs, like “Bang Me Box” and “Rainbowland.”
While speaking to TIME magazine, she confirmed that she’s gender fluid, saying, “People try to make everyone something. You can just be whatever you want to be…I’m just equal. I’m just even. It has nothing to do with any parts of me or how I dress or how I look. It’s literally just how I feel.”
