Caitlyn Jenner is having her moment — but she’s also sharing the spotlight in the process. After giving us all the feels (aka making us want to party with her) at Pride, the Vanity Fair cover girl is now diving into the editorial world shortly before the premiere of her E! docu-series I Am Cait on July 26. And so continues the Year of Caitlyn.
Debuting the first editorial piece in her brand-new WhoSay series “The Real Me,” Caitlyn explained that these entries will explore issues and people in the LGBT community as told to and written by her. In the first article, titled “The Journey Begins,” she thanks everyone for their overwhelming positive support, touches on how she isolated herself from the transgender community for so long and shares how she feels like she has a lot of catching up to do within that community. In the post, she also writes how she feels a responsibility to “this courageous group to try to get it right and tell all sides of the story” while also asking “am I doing it right?”
Whether she feels like she is or not, it definitely appears like she is on the right path by shining a light on a community that has been long overlooked. It appears that the online editorial series will act as an expanded companion piece to the E! show, as Caitlyn writes that she will be sharing stories in the coming weeks and can’t wait for you to get to know more people in the trans community because “they are just like you and me.” In the latest trailer for I Am Cait the Olympian is shown sharing the fact that it had only been two weeks since her transition with a group of trans women, which she highlights in the WhoSay post in further detail.
She closes “The Journey Begins” by previewing what’s to come with this online series. Caitlyn writes, “This is the first in a series of editorials where I will discuss the serious issues and lessons that I am learning through this process. I have so much to discover and hope that you’ll join me on this adventure.” We definitely will and can’t wait to learn alongside you, girl <3
