In the lead-up to her new docu-series I Am Cait, Caitlyn Jenner has started a column on WhoSay entitled The Real Me.
This blog will chronicle her journey and shed light on other members of the trans community.
In her first essay, the Olympian, public speaker and activist thanked everyone for their support since her Vanity Fair cover and transgender transformation.
She said she’s “eternally grateful” for the support.
“Up until now, I have totally isolated myself from the transgender community, so I have a lot of catching up to do,” Caitlyn wrote.
“I feel such a responsibility to this courageous group to try to get it right and tell all sides of the story. To me, that’s always the biggest question: am I doing it right?”
She continues on to write about some of the ordeals her new friends have suffered in their struggle to openly identify as transgender.
“You wouldn’t believe the types of ordeals these people have had, how they have had to literally fight for their own survival. Many trans teens are bullied and abused in high school. It’s just horrendous.
“Then there’s the other dark side of this issue: did you know that nearly 25% of the women in high-end sex business are reportedly trans women?”
