The singer and famous rejecter of labels (opens in new tab) is launching her campaign—which she personally photographed—with Leo (opens in new tab), a 19-year-old college student from Michigan. "I hope the focus shifts away from personal questions regarding medical history, and onto questions about hopes and dreams, likes and dislikes, hobbies and activities," he said in an extensive Q&A on happyhippies.org (opens in new tab). "I really hope society continues to see how far love and acceptance can carry folks."
