Caitlyn Jenner To Appear At A LGBT-Focused Brunch Outside Next Week’s Republican National Convention

Looks like Caitlyn Jenner is standing with the Republicans… sort of.

The I Am Cait star is going to Cleveland next week, but it won’t be for the Republican National Convention — instead, she’s ready to participate as a celebrity guest at an LGBT brunch outside the convention.

The American Unity Fund, a conservative organization that advocates for LGBT causes, is hosting the brunch on July 20 in an effort to show conservatives support LGBT issues and the community at large.

Talk show host Montel Williams is also slated to attend the event.

Jenner, for her part, sounds excited to be a part of the brunch, saying in a statement:

“The party conventions are like the political Olympics, and I’m excited to be headed to Cleveland to stand with my fellow LGBT Republicans and allies. As a proud Republican and transgender woman, I want to support courageous Republicans who advocate for LGBT freedom … I want to do my part to persuade more Republicans to support freedom for millions of LGBT Americans.”

Williams added his own statement, too:

“There are a few misguided lawmakers who have lost sight of the fact that anything short of full freedom for our LGBT neighbors, friends, and co-workers is a threat to the freedom of all of us. Like Vice President Dick Cheney stated, ‘Freedom means freedom for everyone.'”


Considering this event is not an official part of the convention, but rather an outside brunch, we’ll see whether Republicans actually end up embracing Caitlyn, or if they’ll do to her the same thing she’s done to Hillary Clinton.
