Caitlyn Jenner is answering her young critics face to face.
After she publicly announced her transition a year ago in a revelatory interview with Diane Sawyer, the former Olympic gold medalist and reality star suddenly became a major force within the LGBT community.
Jenner later reintroduced herself to the public for the first time on the cover of Vanity Fair, was hailed as a "trans champion" by Glamour, which nominated her as one of their 2015 women of year and was ultimately honored with the 2015 Espys' Arthur Ash Award.
Among all of the initial accolades, the 66-year-old television personality fielded endless criticism, particularly for her support of the Republican political party despite its members' unfavorable outlook on LGBT rights. While Jenner has publicly decried Republican-rooted anti-LGBT legislation in North Carolina and elsewhere, she has continued to field criticism from LGBT youth.
So, she faced the complaints head on by sitting down with them for a personal one-on-one.
