Republican lawmakers met with Caitlyn Jenner, but none of them want to be recognized

Caitlyn Jenner met with [REDACTED], [REDACTED], and [REDACTED], and they stated [REDACTED] about trans rights A group of Republican lawmakers met with Caitlyn Jenner this week – but they aren’t even prepared to be identified. Jenner has been an outspoken Republican since prior to her transition to female, and nonetheless supports the celebration in spite of GOP lawmakers pushing anti-trans laws in dozens of states. The party’s Presidential hopeful Donald Trump not long ago ‘devolved’ on the concern and backed North Carolina’s anti-trans law.

whilst the Republican National Convention this summertime adopted its most extreme get together platform ever on LGBT rights. which affirmed “biological” gender and the correct to discriminate against trans people.

Jenner has vowed not to “give up” on the get together. and this week headed to Capitol Hill to meet with celebration lawmakers in a bid to rally assistance. The meeting was organised by the American Unity Fund and Florida Senator Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who herself has a transgender son.

Even so, for any individual who may well blunder the meeting for an indication of a softening stance, there’s a pretty major hint that’s not the case: none of the celebration bigwigs at the meeting are even ready to admit that they were there. CNN asked Ros-Lehtinen who was truly existing for the session, but she “declined to determine who they were, saying she wasn’t confident they needed to discuss it”. She rather recalled how Jenner” talked about her faith and her journey and how the Republican Party really should be open to hearing these kinds of stories”. She extra: “Caitlyn is going to carry on this outreach and I consider it’s a constructive message of appreciate and outreach.” But who was current? How did they truly react?

Really don’t inquire, do not tell.
