Caitlyn Jenner And Laverne Cox Meet For First Time At I Am Cait Screening (PICS)
Jenner invited Cox to a private screening of her upcoming E! series, “I Am Cait.” As Gossip Cop has reported, the show follows Jenner as she adjusts to her new life after transitioning from male to female. While Jenner only came out as transgender earlier this year, Cox transitioned a number of years ago.
The “Orange Is The New Black” star has been a source of comfort and advice for Jenner from afar, and both have spoken about their friendship in interviews. Amazingly, though, they had never officially met until Sunday. Cox wrote on Instagram afterward, “@caitlynjenner and I finally met in person at a special private advance screening of #IAmCait. #TransIsBeautiful #girlslikeus #caitlynjenner.”
The actress also posted a group photo showing the other attendees. “Fun with #girlslikeus tonight at the screening of #IAmCait @tracelysette @candiscayne @smartassjen @zackarydrucker #MimiMarks #TransIsBeautiful,” she said in the caption. Trace Lysette also shared her own snapshot with Jenner, writing, “The brave @caitlynjenner at the #IamCait premier. #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus.”
The other notable name at the gathering was transgender actress Candis Cayne, who has also been a help for Jenner during her new journey. But although they’ve been spending a lot of time together, including at famed gay bar The Abbey on Saturday, Gossip Cop is told the relationship is strictly platonic. See the new photos below!
