Well. That was amazing.
If there’s anything the Kardashians do well, it’s reality TV. It’s a craft they and their extended family have honed over ten years.
It was gutwrenching. Touching. Beautiful. And yes, at times even funny.
It was a moment of television where transgender rights were at the forefront of everyone’s minds. And if I Am Cait is set out to achieve anything, it’s that when it comes to transgender issues, the world is now listening.
I Am Cait was an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. Caitlyn Jenner, we’re watching. And we are enthralled.
Here are the top five most emotional moments of the premiere.
1. The moment Kylie Jenner met Caitlyn for the first time.
Seventeen-year-old Kylie showed up to Caitlyn’s house and was “nervous” about their meeting. But to viewers, it seemed like the most natural thing in the world. You can watch that moment below. Post continues after video.
2. Kanye West’s speech to Caitlyn about how strong she is.
Kanye and Kim showed up at Caitlyn’s house and offered some words of support to the 65-year-old Olympian. Kanye gave a speech about how strong Caitlyn is to transition.
“I think this is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings that are so controlled by perception,” Kanye said.
“You couldn’t have been up against more. Your daughter’s a supermodel, you’re a celebrity, you have every type of thing ever, it’s still like ‘fuck everybody, this is who I am’.”
