What Does Caitlyn Jenner Running For CA Governor Mean for Trans?

Her coming out inspired many trans individuals across the world.

It’s rare to see openly transgender public figures and we know transgender community is a supportive community for all.

Now her entry into politics is being criticized by just as many.

Her party, Republican Party, is frequently criticized by trans rights.

In fact, herself too she’s facing a lot of backlash for opposing to let transgender girls play girls’ sports ‘just isn’t fair’. This was Jenner’s first comment on the controversial issue which we wrote a little while ago, since announcing her candidacy to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom in a recall election.

Why This Matters

Unlike Kardashian family, Caitlyn Jenner is a Republican and she supported Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election but later criticized his administration for some discriminatory actions against transgender people.

“Hard to be a transgender in a world where it feels like your supposed allies are not even standing up for your rights.”
