Description

Caitlyn Jenner is answering her young critics face to face. After she publicly announced her transition a year ago in a revelatory interview with Diane Sawyer , the former Olympic gold medalist and reality star suddenly became a major force within the LGBT community. Jenner later reintroduced herself to the public for the first time on the cover of Vanity Fair, was hailed as a "trans champion" by Glamour , which nominated her as one of their 2015 women of year and was ultimately honored with the 2015 Espys' Arthur Ash Award. The 66-year-old television personality fielded endless criticism, particularly for her support of the Republican political party despite its members' unfavorable outlook on LGBT rights. While Jenner has publicly decried Republican-rooted anti-LGBT legislation in North Carolina and elsewhere, she has continued to field criticism from LGBT youth.
