Caitlyn Jenner and Cher’s Son Chaz Bono Team Up To Meet ‘Gender Diverse’ Youth
Caitlyn Jenner and Chaz Bono are the perfect combination to help inspire the transgender youth of America and all over the world. Caitlyn, 65, was previously Bruce Jenner, patriarch of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” clan but transitioned after decades of an inner struggle. He underwent surgery and and revealed herself to be Caitlyn on the cover of “Vanity Fair,” looking feminine and delicate in lingerie. A far cry from the little shorts and tank that was once worn for the Olympic games that garnered Jenner the gold medal and making her an icon for all athletes. As for Chaz, 46, he was born Chastity Bono to Sonny Bono and Cher then came out as a lesbian. It seemed to be a huge issue but over time, Chaz decided to take the next step and transition into a man.
So together, Jenner and Bono both know the struggle of being transgender from both sides. The two met up at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the meeting with air this evening on Caitlyn’s E! docu-series “I Am Cait.” Jenner is working very hard to understand the struggles that less privileged transgender people go through, like having to work in the sex industry. She is also trying to do whatever she can to help with the understanding of what it means to be trans so that the suicide/murder rates will drop dramatically. The meeting took place at the Center For Transyouth Health and Development which has a support group called Transforming Family with the goal, according to their social media being to “create a society in which ALL children are respected and celebrated.”
Candis Cayne, also transgender, appears in the episode with Jenner and Bono and has been rumored to be Jenner’s love interest. However, Cayne has been very specific on “I Am Cait” that she only wants to date men. The episode will air at 8p.m. this evening and we will be recapping it in case you do not get a chance to watch it. *Just a side note: Chaz appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” and now it is rumored that Jenner may be putting her dancing shoes on for the upcoming season.*
