Singers Miley Cyrus and Ty Herndon are speaking out against two proposed bills in Tennessee that target the LGBT community.

House Bill 1840 would allow counselors to refuse mental health services to clients based on their religious beliefs, while House Bill 2414 seeks to prohibit students in public institutions from using the bathroom that does not conform to their gender at birth. Both bills advanced on Wednesday.

Cyrus, who was born in Franklin, Tennessee, criticized House Bill 2414 in an Instagram post.

“For a moment a few weeks ago, it seemed like lawmakers in Tennessee had really heard the brave testimony of a transgender young person and her parents,” Cyrus wrote.

“A mother's simple ask to legislators about what they would do if it was their child who was transgender hit a nerve, and the anti-transgender bill was sent to a summer study session, seemingly killing it for this year. But that was two weeks ago – a lifetime ago, it seems, in light of all that has happened since – and that bill is back.”

Last year, Cyrus helped launch the Happy Hippie Foundation, which is dedicated to helping homeless and LGBT youth.

Herndon, a country singer who came out gay in 2014, called on Republican Governor Bill Haslam to veto House Bill 1840, though the legislation has yet to reach his desk.

“Join me in calling on #Tennessee Gov. @BillHaslam to veto #HB1840,” Herndon, who lives in Nashville, tweeted. “Discrimination is ALWAYS wrong.”
