I Am Cait, Caitlyn Jenner


Caitlyn Jenner is on a mission to educate herself about issues facing the trans community.

In an exclusive sneak peek clip from tonight's episode of I Am Cait, the 65-year-old takes a road trip with some of her new girlfriends. The trans women try to help Cait understand the tragic challenges trans men and women face across the country.

"What's the big issue?" Cait asks. Chandi replies, "They're homeless, unemployed, so it's just going to take a lot more."

"I think if I was to focus on one area it would be entry level jobs so that these girls have some alternative if they wanted," Jen Richards says.

As conversation continues, Caitlyn's conservative views become a problem for some of her friends.

"Don't a lot of times they can make more not working with social programs than they actually can with an entry level job," Cait says. "But you don't want people to get totally dependent on it. That's when they get in trouble. ‘Why should I work?'"

"Now I'm worried," LGBT activist Jenny Boylan says as the other women react uncomfortably to Cait's statement. "Caitlyn has every right to be just as conservative as she choses, but many transgender men and women need social programs to survive, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. Living in the bubble is an impediment to understanding other people. Cait's going to be a spokesperson for the community. This is something she's going to have to understand."

Watch the clip to see just how dramatic things get.
