CAITLYN Jenner could be adding politician to her already impressive resume of Olympic gold athlete and reality television star.
On August 24, 2021, Caitlyn’s hour-long documentary titled Untold was released on Netflix.
Will Caitlyn Jenner run for California governor?
On April 23, 2021, Caitlyn Jenner announced on Twitter that she would be running for governor of California.
“California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality,” she said in a press release.
“But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduce by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people.”
“Californians want and deserve better from their governor. For too long, career politicans have over-promised and under-delivered…I can’t wait to lead, to help and most importantly to disrupt the status quo once again.”
The news comes as reports swirled around that Caitlyn was in talks with political consultants about running for governor.
It comes as current California Governor Gavin Newsom faces a possible recall election, launched by Republicans furious about his immigration and tax policies.
Axios reports Republican supporting Jenner is being helped by GOP fundraiser Caroline Wren who previously worked at Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for former President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign.
Jenner reportedly met Wren via her work with the American Unity Fund which is a Republican nonprofit group focused on LGBT+ issues.
Is Caitlyn Jenner a Republican or Democrat?
Caitlyn has been widely known as a member of the Republican party.
In 2016, she joked at the Republican National Convention that she “got more trouble for coming out as a Republican than I did for being trans.”
In 2020, however, the year that marked the five-year anniversary of her transition, she said she had “changed her political views.”
What is Caitlyn Jenner’s documentary Untold about?
Untold is about the behind the scenes truth of the sports world.
While sports fans can see events like the Olympics play out from start to finish, they haven’t been given a behind the scenes look.
Untold shows the up close and personal of these athlete’s psychology and experiences in the sporting industry.
Opening up in an emotional clip, Caitlin Jenner talks about her struggle with identity while being an Olympic athlete.
“I didn’t want people to know me and know who I was”, she tells the camera in an honest and emotional conversation.
The series feels incredibly relevant, coming after the close of the Olympics and conversations surrounding athlete’s mental health.
Was Caitlyn Jenner a Trump supporter?
Caitlyn revoked her support for Trump in 2018.
She publicly spoke against the former President’s stance on gay marriage to Diane Sawyer on “20/20,” saying “I am 100% behind gay marriage, let’s clear that up right now.”
She also publicly criticized Trump’s decision to reverse a directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms on Twitter, calling it “a disaster.”
