Her new eight-part docu-series, I Am Cait, debuted on E! on Sunday
The story of Caitlyn Jenner has touched millions of people over the past few months but the public advocate for the transgender community has much more to share as her eight-part reality show, I Am Cait, showed.
Caitlyn Jenner's new reality show, I Am Cait, premiered on E!
The former Olympian’s new reality show premiered on E! on Sunday 26 July and highlighted just how important Caitlyn feels her role is within the transgender world.
At the beginning of her show, she tells the camera: "What a responsibility I have towards this community. I just hope I get it right."
Jenner, 65, goes on: "I feel bad that especially young people are going through such a difficult time in their life.
"We don’t want people dying for this. We don’t want people murdered for this stuff. Am I going to do everything right? Am I going to say the right things? Do I project the right image? My mind’s just spinning with thoughts."
It is clear throughout her docu-series that Caitlyn believes she has more to do than just feel comfortable in her own skin - she has to tell other people’s stories as well as her own.
In another segment, she told the camera: "I feel tremendous responsibility here because I have a voice and there are so many trans people out there who do not have a voice."
Whether Caitlyn Jenner believes she is living up to the responsibilities and roles that she has set herself out for, opinions for her new show have been favourable and it cannot be denied that she is putting the issue of transgender firmly in the spotlight.
