Caitlyn Jenner’s Blog: ‘The Journey Begins’ – Talks About Catching Up With Transgender Community
Caitlyn Jenner has had a fierce and fabulous social media debut. Since her official coming out, just over a month ago, on the cover of Vanity Fair, Caitlyn has been blowing up the internet with gorgeous images and statements of pride and love. She has been extremely open and transparent about her journey and now she has given the public yet another outlet to share her experiences. A few weeks ahead of her reality show’s debut, I Am Cait, Jenner has created a blog on Whosay. She shared her first post Monday, July 6 titled “The Journey Begins.”
“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,” Caitlyn writes.
She writes about meeting with other trans women and how she has “a lot of catching up to do” since she has isolated herself from the transgender community.
Most importantly, Caitlyn brings attention to the trials and horrors that many of these people have gone through, saying “they have had to literally fight for their own survival.” There are many struggles that face the transgender community, including bullying and abuse. Caitlyn talks about how fortunate she has been in her experiences, but has “heard every horror story there is in the book.” Caitlyn has become a symbol for the LBGT community and she is wearing the title proudly. She hopes to use her blog as a way to not only talk about her own journey, but to talk about the experiences of other trans women. “I feel such a responsibility to this courageous group to try to get it right and tell all sides of the story,” she says.
Caitlyn also thanks everyone for their love and support during her journey. The whole Kardashian and Jenner clan has been supporting Caitlyn during the transition, including son Brody Jenner who recently told Yahoo News he was “getting to know the person that had” him.
The first of the eight part docu-series I Am Cait will premiere on E! July 26.
