    Happy Holidays!

    I want to thank you again for taking the time to share your stories with me and ask questions. It’s such a pleasure reading through the notes you send! Many of you have asked what I’m doing for the holidays, so I thought I’d share a little about my annual family traditions. Happy holidays, everyone! With love, Cait

    Still So Much To Learn

    In the first scene of the first episode of I Am Cait, I was up at 4:30 in the morning worrying, “I hope I get it right.” Since I told the world my truth six months ago, I’ve tried to be a force for good. I’ve met and listened to many people in the transgender community, from trans women of color, to the parents of trans kids who’ve taken their own lives, to people working in the courts and legislatures and media to make the world a better, safer place for trans people. I’ve spent a lot of time listening to people tell me their stories. Even now, at the…

    What I’ve Learned

    Hello friends. Caitlyn here. As the first season of my show, I Am Cait, comes to end, I find myself reflecting on my journey so far and just how rewarding it has been. My experience over the last four months has been incredible. Many people have come up to me and told me their stories. It turns out lots of you have friends or family members who are transgender. Who knew? I never would have had these conversations if I had not come out publicly and finally lived my truth. For so long, people – myself included – were embarrassed to talk about transgender issues and now we finally have…

    Tales From A Camp For Extraordinary Kids

    Hi friends! Not too long ago I had the honor of visiting a very special place called Camp Aranu’tiq. On the surface, it looks like any other children’s summer camp – kids ages 8-15 are running around doing sports, swimming, and lots of other fun activities. However, it’s a retreat entirely for transgender children, teens, and their families. Pretty neat stuff. My friends and I spent time talking with the campers and I probably learned more from them than they did from me. I was so impressed by them – these young people have it together. Despite the tremendous challenge of dealing with their gender identities, they have incredible aspirations…

    Meet My Friend, Blossom

    Hi, my friends! This week I want to introduce you to a young woman who holds a special spot in my heart. When I was up in San Francisco at the HRC facility, I met this wonderful young lady named Blossom. She is enthusiastic, energetic, and just absolutely great. I love her story. She’s about to be the first trans woman to graduate from Mississippi University for Women — an incredible accomplishment. The problem she has right now is that she hasn’t been able to take the leap from college to nursing school, and she really feels like the reason she’s not able to do that is because she’s trans.…

    We Have to Make Things Easier

    Hi, friends. I hope your week is off to a great start. As always, thank you for your unending love and support. Every day, I’m humbled by the thousands of you who reach out to tell me your story, ask questions, or provide encouragement. Even though I can’t respond to each of you individually, I want you to know that I appreciate your kind gestures more than I could ever express. To those of you who have asked me for my opinion or expertise, I want to remind you that while I’ve know that I was trans since I was a small child, learning about the trans community is still…

    In Loving Memory of India Clarke and K.C. Haggard

    Last week two transgender women were murdered named India Clarke and K.C. Haggard. 11 trans women have been killed in the United States in the past six months — most of them trans women of color. My condolences to those who loved India, K.C., and all of the other victims. No one should be killed simply because they are transgender. Please learn more about the violence trans people face in this report from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs here. After that, I encourage you to watch the video below of Janet Mock discussing the violence that trans women face on MSNBC’s The Melissa Harris-Perry Show on July 26. (You can also…

    One Tremendous Problem In The Transgender Community

    Hi, Caitlyn here. This week we’re going to talk about a very serious issue in the transgender community. One tremendous problem, especially for trans youth, is the suicide rate. A recent study of nearly 100 transgender youth, ages 12 to 24, found that 51% reported thinking about suicide, while 30% had attempted it at least once in their lives (report here). In San Diego alone, over the last several months there have been three transgender kids who’ve died by suicide. The latest you might have heard about last night on my show — Kyler Prescott, a 14-year-old trans boy who not only dealt with trans issues, but also suffered from severe…
