Caitlyn Jenner's coming out docu-series on E! is as popular as she is, and the premiere episode "Meeting Cait" has been well received by most people. We saw her youngest daughter Kylie's response to seeing her in person for the first time and when her step-daughter Kim and husband Kanye stopped by to show support.
However, the rest of the family is yet to visit, and she is upset that they may be unhappy with the transition.
However, her mother and sisters saw her as Caitlyn for the first time, and although her sisters were happy for her right away, her mother took some getting used to; after which she was also happy that her child is happy. Jenner also visited parents of Kyler Prescott, one of the victims of transphobia, and spoke about the bigotry in the nation, and many transgender persons bullied into suicide.
In episode 2 "The Road Trip: Part 1", Jenner goes on a road trip with her new friends in the transgender community. In one of the promos, her conservative outlook towards social programs for the Trans community comes to light, worrying her friends.
In the clip she says that "Don't a lot of times they can make more not working with social programs than they actually can with an entry level job... But you don't want people to get totally dependent on it. That's when they get in trouble - Why should I work?'"
Jenny Boylan, one of her friends, responds to the off-handed comment on the camera, "Caitlyn has every right to be just as conservative as she chooses, but many transgender men and women need social programs to survive, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. Living in the bubble is an impediment to understanding other people. Cait's going to be a spokesperson for the community. This is something she's going to have to understand."
The series deals with a lot of the issues plaguing the transgender community, and we are taken into a meeting where many transgender persons share their struggles, which include getting stabbed, being suicidal and even having to engage in sex work to survive.
The show also has a lighter side, in moments like the one where Cait getting intel on what goes down at a women's slumber party. She may even get asked out in the coming episodes.
During the promo, one of her friends is heard saying, "you need a sexy one for Candance," when she tries on a bathing suit. In the next shot, the said woman is seen snuggling in to Cait at a gym, and then in the shot after that, asking her "would you like to go out on a date?' as Caitlyn blushes profusely.
Watch out for episode 2 of "I am Cait" at 8.00 pm (EST) on E! You can also watch "The Road Trip: Part 1" online via E! Now.
