"Meet Mariana and Alex (@anderfinn), transgender friends and co-workers at the @lalgbtcenter in Los Angeles. Mariana was born in Central America and received asylum, or legal protection to stay in the U.S., after facing abuse and persecution in her home county. Now she’s a community activist and provides services for transgender individuals who are looking for legal advice. She says, 'I’m very good making people feel safe and show them a better life full of possibilities, no matter where they are coming from. Just like me, people keep coming from around the world looking for shelter, for a place to call home and make their true colors shine!!'" – Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus)
