A new promo trailer for I Am Cait has been released exclusively on E! News Monday evening!
The clip gives us a tiny bit of insight into the emotional exploration the docu-series will show us. The sixty-five year old promises fans, family and friends that she is now living as her true self and that are “no more secrets”. She is finally free to be herself.
At the beginning of the clip we see Caitlyn hanging out with her mother, Esther Jenner, and some other ladies. They all have their champagne in hand and are toasting “to Caitlyn”. You can see it in Caitlyn’s face and body language just how happy and confident transitioning has helped her become.
Esther, 88, tells all the ladies that at first she was concerned about her “Bruce” becoming her “Caitlyn” and what that loss might mean for her. She says:
“My first feeling was, ‘I lost my son.’ Then I thought, ‘You know what? I’m gaining!’”
Isn’t that the truth! She gained a vibrant, athletic, beautiful daughter who can now finally be comfortable in her own skin.
Also in the clip, Caitlyn is seen giving a pep talk to a group of transgendered teens. Before she ends the session with a hug and declaration of group beauty, she tells them:
“Hang out with the people that love you and respect you.”
In a blog post titled The Journey Begins she confessed that she had “totally isolated (her)self from the transgender community” and as a result had “a lot of catching up to do”! The tremendous support she has received has pushed her to try and give back. She said:
“The response to my new journey has been overwhelmingly positive and I’m eternally grateful for all of our sweet messages, letters, and gifts. (…) I feel such a responsibility to this courageous group to try to get it right and tell all sides of the story. To me, that’s always the biggest question: am I doing it right? (…) I have so much to discover, and hope you’ll join me on this adventure.”
The promo showed some of the more trying times too. As we saw in Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Caitlyn is very family oriented. With ten kids, how could you not be? The trailer shows Caitlyn proclaiming through tears:
“I want them to be proud of their daddy”
By “them” she of course means all ten of her children. The six Jenner kids: Kendall, Kylie, Brandon, Burt and Casey. And her four Kardashian kids: Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob. Being loved, accepted and understood by her children is the ultimate goal for her. The emotion that floods out when she talks about her children is such a true and honest testament to her love. Well, I don’t think Caitlyn has to worry about her children…I don’t think they have anything but love for their “daddy” now that the secrets are all out.
