While we were living it up summer-style over Saturday and Sunday, enjoying some sand + sun celebrating National Ice Cream Day thinking we had the best mid-July weekend some famous faces proved us wrong while giving us a serious case of FOMO in the process. Last night when we were finishing up some late Sunday Netflix bingeing and applying much-needed aloe for that sunburn we accidentally got, Caitlyn Jenner and co were celebrating the long-awaited launch of her E! docu-series.
With I Am Cait debuting Sunday, Caitlyn gathered friends together for a private screening of the show. And those friends weren’t just any random ladies. OITNB star Laverne Cox, actress + singer Candis Cayne, actress Trace Lysette, writer Jen Richards, artist Zackary Drucker and more gathered in a close-knit, intimate affair to check out the docu-series. A tear-inducing ESPYs speech (which she wrote about on her WhoSay blog) and upping her #squadgoals game, all in a normal week for Caitlyn Jenner.
The most notable guest by far at the affair was the OITNB breakout star, who met Caitlyn for the first time at the screening. Fingers crossed these two inspiring women will become a powerful BFF duo to further promote trans rights.
Are Caitlyn + Laverne your new fave duo? Let us know in the comments.
