By now, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t know who Caitlyn Jenner is. The reality star and Olympian caught the attention of the world earlier this year when she came out as a transgender woman. Since then, she’s become something of an icon in the transgender community, giving inspirational speeches, writing editorials on the LGBT community, and even documenting her post-transition experience on the show, I Am Cait.
Now, Cait’s taking her motivational speaking skills on the road with her Up Close and Personal Tour and we couldn’t be more excited. Cait’s popular and persistent presence in the media has been monumental for the transgender community and it’s incredibly heartening to see her continue to make strides for equality, against bullying and hate, and spreading a positive message about what it’s like to be transgender.
Part of the Unique Lives and Experiences lecture series, the tour will be hitting Toronto in February 2016, followed by dates in Vancouver, Denver, San Francisco, and Seattle. Past speakers of the Unique Lives and Experiences series include inspiring individuals like Maya Angelou, Sidney Poitier, Sissy Spacek, and Valerie Plame, so you know Cait’s in good company.
