Miley Cyrus's first kiss was with a girl.
The 26-year-old songstress, appearing Wednesday on the podcast RuPaul: What's the Tee with Michelle Visage, made the revelation as she opened up about her youth growing up in Music City.
'When I was kind of growing up, being from the South … my first kiss was with a girl in middle school,' the Tennessee native explained on the podcast. 'And no one could understand, in Nashville, saying that … so I had that relationship.'
The We Can't Stop singer said she's always striven to be an advocate for LGBTQ+ people, dating back to her time as a teen star on the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana.
'I was one of the only kids on Disney that would come out and say that I supported all my gay friends; no one really would say that, so that was always really important to me.'
Miley, who appeared in the 11th season premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race as a guest judge, praised RuPaul's program for its theme of self-acceptance.
'Besides even sexuality, it’s about what your show represents; being your f***ing self - that’s what it is,' she said. 'It doesn’t have to attach to who you love, it’s about you loving yourself more than who you love outside yourself.'
Miley, who wed The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth December 23, told Vanity Fair last month they're 'redefining, to be f***ing frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship.'
The Wrecking Ball artist added that 'a big part of [her] pride and [her] identity is being a queer person.'
She added that she doesn't think contemporary relationships and partnerships 'have so much to do with sexuality or gender.
'Sex is actually a small part, and gender is a very small, almost irrelevant part of relationships,' Miley added.
