Caitlyn Jenner wants to be a politician to protect trans people


As Donald Trump attacked her community rights, the transgender reality star started to think about political career to protect them. She told the BBC that Trump’s approach to LGBT rights “doesn’t make me regret my vote yet,” but that his actions, which include revoking guidance protecting trans students, were “very disappointing”. Victoria Derbyshire asks Jenner whether she thinks about being political. Trans star replied that she is already political but her actions are mostly hidden. Jenner says she is looking for the abilities to “do a better job for my community, in bringing the Republican Party around when it comes to all LGBT issues. Is it from the outside? Kind of working on the outside and the perimeter and working with everybody to get the Republicans to change their thinking?” she asked. “Or is it better off being on the inside and actually running for a Congress or Senate seat? Can I do more good there? And those are the things that I am evaluating.” “We have such issues in our community,” she said, “The murder rate right now for trans people – we have had nine since the beginning of the year.”
