Caitlyn Jenner Clashes With Her Friends About Politics

Pin It
When Caitlyn Jenner did her Diane Sawyer interview and revealed that she was transgender, there was a second shocker - Caitlyn admitted that she's a Republican. Given that Republicans haven't historically been supportive of LGBT issues, it seemed like it could pose a potential issue with Caitlyn being transgender.

The good news is that it has actually opened up discussion about the party's stance on the issues and groups like the Log Cabin Republicans, who represent gay conservatives and allies who support fairness, freedom, and equality for all Americans, are celebrating Caitlyn and what she might be able to offer to the party.

"One of the more interesting and exciting things about Caitlyn Jenner is that potential she has to bridge these two worlds of entertainment and politics," the group's national executive director told E! News.

Still, Caitlyn faces a tough battle on the political front, especially with the more traditional conservatives. In this sneak peek from I Am Cait released by E! News, we see Caitlyn get into a heated political debate with her friends, who clearly don't agree with her stance on social programs.

Can Caitlyn continue to be a conservative even when some traditional conservative stances wouldn't theoretically support her? Maybe she can help people see that not all Republicans are opposed to LGBT rights. We'll just have to wait and see.
