Cait, who was there to present the Point Horizon Award, received a standing ovation as she made her way up onto the stage, which she joked about when she finally got to her destination. "A standing ovation for not tripping in heels," she joked. "I appreciate that very much. Actually, it's kind of interesting I've always been really tall but I walk out here today and I say, 'Wait a second, I'm a little bit taller than I usually am,' so i have to adjust the mic here a bit because girls, it's all about the shoes, isn't it? Let's be honest. It certainly is."
She also admitted that while she was thrilled to be there, this was her first time publicly speaking since the ESPYs, although she made a distinction between being nervous and being intimidated.
"This is a very different group," she explained. "When I did that, honestly I had to divorce myself from where I was. I'd been at the ESPY Awards many, many times. I couldn't put it in my head. I'm standing up there, in my perfectly executed Donatella Versace gown, and I'm looking down at LeBron James, Brett Favre, and I'm thinking, 'I can't go there.' I just have to stick to my speech, get it out. Somehow, I look at this audience, and I just don't get that feeling that it's that intimidating to me."
The Voices on Point Gala was presented by the Point Foundation, which aims to empower "promising lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students to achieve their full academic and leadership potential – despite the obstacles often put before them – to make a significant impact on society."
