Caitlyn Jenner Gets Emotional in ‘I Am Cait’ Promo: ‘People Don’t Understand’

I Am Cait Season Finale Review

In a landmark day for the LGBT community with the Supreme Court ruling in favor for marriage equality, a new promo for E!’s Caitlyn Jenner docu-series “I Am Cait” has hit the Web, with the Olympian offering an explanation on why she decided to move forward with the TV show.

“Why did I decide to do a series?” Jenner asks in the new clip. “I am telling my story. People don’t understand looking into the mirror and nothing seems right, putting on clothes that you really don’t identify with. This is about getting to be who you really are.”

The new promo also teases some emotional family scenes, showing Jenner hugging her youngest daughter Kylie.

“We’re going to talk about everything,” Jenner goes on. “We’re going to do a lot of fun things for the first time. We’re going to go shopping for the first time. Maybe even some boy stuff, like ride a motorcycle — because girls do that too.”

Jenner ends the promo by echoing the same desire she’s voiced since announcing her transition, to “do some good.”

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, made waves early this month when she made her debut as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair. “I Am Cait” will bow on E! Sunday, June 26.

    Im Very Happy for you. I have an Uncle. That came out, in later life as well. PLEASE HELP. The girl, on” I AM Jaz” as she got a DEATH THREAT!!!! That’s HORRIBLE!

    I liked Bruce. I like Caitlyn. But honest question here – why hasn’t her voice changed yet?

    • Lexi says:

      Although people experience numerous changes when transitioning, estrogen will not effect the sound of the voice. Testosterone will make in most cases, a huge transition in the voice, but estrogen will not. Most Male-To-Female people in transition will either attend vocal classes and/or teach themselves how to change the sound of their voice. It takes a lot of practice. There are also people that are completely comfortable with their voice remaining the same because really, what defines a male or female voice? :)

    So, we’ve expanded the meaning of “people don’t understand” to include “people who won’t buy bullshit”. Okay Bruce.

    Mr. Stedman, you get paid for this ****?

    Pardon me while I puke …

    Go Caitlyn!!!!! How fantastic.

  7. Jason says:

    Go away. You sellout.

  8. This phony demoralizing persons name is Bruce Jenner unless he changes his name legally. Is he aware that if a cop stops him and gives a phony name he can be arrested for impersonating, yes he can. To me he’s a man that likes to dress up as a woman, a man in drag and lots of men do this because they’re perverted or whatever. As for him it’s about a TV show for him and and his extended families to make him more money. Jenner’s perverted fantasy will now be his daily reality until he gets caught out of his pretend role playing.

    • And yet you’re still here, wasting your time and energy commenting your hate, when you could’ve taken the high road and avoided it altogether. This is his reality, the plastic surgery, recent modifications, and the fact that he’s been on estrogen for a solid year, and topping it with legally changing his name to a LEGITIMATE name, does not make him a drag queen. It makes him feel like the person he is meant to be. She’s out living her life, smiling at hateful comments like yours and she goes on with her day. In the end, whose the loser? The person who decided to live how they felt they should, or the hater who can’t so anything but complain because he can’t?

      • BillUSA says:

        You ought to read your comments. You sound as bad as those whom you don’t agree with. Remember, this is the United States – the country which provides us the right to express ourselves freely. Isn’t that what the LGBT community is about?

        All at once you refer to Bruce Jenner as both “him” and “she” in defense of him. So which is it? Are you confused as so many pro-heterosexuals claim your type to be?

        The fact is that Bruce Jenner is born a male. No amount of hormones, bodily mutilation and legal re-naming will change that. It’s a superficial assumption, or “drag” as some prefer to call it. It’s all a pretense designed to pull in the money which is sure to come. Get real.

      • Sal U. Lloyd says:

        Gimenez, and you’re still here STALKING HIM!!!!
