‘I Am Cait’ Season 2 Has Caitlyn Jenner Getting More Serious on Transgender Issues

‘I Am Cait’ Season 2 Has Caitlyn Jenner Getting More Serious on Transgender Issues

i am cait season 2 teaser trailer hits 2016The teaser trailer for Caitlyn Jenner’s reality show “I Am Cait” proclaims changed her life last year. Now she’s living it.

The trailer (below) shows just how much she’s changed and the fact that rather than being a little wishy washy on how she identifies herself, Caitlyn simply states that he’s ‘been there, done that’ with women so it’s time to head for her first ex-husband.

As with many people, making a change like this so late in life, is like become a teenager all over again and the same mistakes and missteps will happen. Caitlyn has learned that after her Time Magazine comment, Ellen Degeneres comment and then having a group of transgender people protesting asking her to stop representing them. That’s a lot of learning curve in just one year, but this year it appears Caitlyn is determined to stay on track, on message while still holding firmly to her conservative views.

The ratings weren’t so great for the season, but the quality of the documentary series was shockingly good after Bruce Jenner’s years on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Hopefully they won’t try to use tired tactics to goose the ratings as the message of the show is strong, and while it may not gain a Kardashian like ratings, it will earn respect from it’s solid base of supporters.

After coming out as a woman in the first season of “I Am Cait,” Jenner is focused on increasing her knowledge about transgender issues and advocating on behalf of the community in the E! reality show’s second season debuting March 6.

Jenner and her posse of five other transgender women embark on a road trip that begins in Los Angeles and winds its way to the Grand Canyon, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Tulsa, Oklahoma, New York, Chicago, Iowa, Kansas City, St. Louis and New Orleans on the series.

It’s not an issue that has borders. It is all over the world. I would love to take this show global.”

Jenner comes out of her shell, leaving the comfort of her Malibu home to interact with the transgender community while exploring dating and romance. Her changing relationships with her children and the Kardashian clan, including ex-wife Kris Jenner, are shown in Season 2.

“For almost my entire life, I never really liked going out. I never really felt like I fit in. I was more of a loner,” she said. “Now after transitioning, I actually enjoy going out.”

When she’s in public, Jenner said she takes 50 selfies daily with mostly young women and boys.

“The next group of people coming up really has a different look at all of this,” she said.

The 66-year-old former Olympic decathlon champion resists the media’s label of voice for transgender people.

“I am only a spokesman for me and my story,” she said. “I have so much to learn in this community. I have so much to learn about womanhood. The platform is not for me. It’s for this community.”
