While some have wondered why she decided to make such a big deal out of it, the answer is simple. Because it IS a big deal.
In this sneak peek from this week's episode released by E! News, Cait explains that not only is it a celebration for her, it's a celebration for many of her transgender friends in attendance.
Before Cait goes outside for the big event, she tells the camera, "All the girls out there, all my little tribe, have told me that they never really celebrated their name change, they just kind of went through it. So it's not just for me, really it's about all of them."
We love that Cait is celebrating everyone there, not just herself, because those women who went on the journey before her have been so helpful to her and while we wish they could have all had their name-changing ceremonies, it's nice to see them share in this moment with her.
