Caitlyn Jenner pays a visits to Los Angeles LGBT Center, cameras follow

It was a visit that wasn’t supposed to be made public – at least until it aired this summer as part of Caitlyn Jenner’s upcoming reality series.

But paparazzi captured a stylish Jenner, wearing blue jeans tucked into her black boots, emerging from a car and entering the Los Angeles LGBT Center for a visit this week.

She was accompanied by security and camera crews.

Jenner, 65, spent approximately two hours at the center, took and tour and met with a group of current and former clients between the ages of 14 and 24 in roundtable and one-on-one discussions.

According to ETOnline, Jenner also spoke with the program manager for the Center’s Transgender Economic Empowerment Project, which helps transgender women and men develop professional skills and find employment.

‘Caitlyn was really friendly,’ a source told E! News about the appearance.

‘It was a small group. They talked to Caitlyn about their experiences, what they were going through and how the Center is helping them. They were really excited to meet her.’

The visit to the Center follows Jenner’s recent road trip along the California coast with a group of fellow transgender female friends.

She later tweeted of that trip: ‘Learned so much this week spending time in SF at the Human Rights Campaign. Unbelievably moving. Can’t wait to share more with you,’ she wrote on her Twitter page on June 5.

    Even though I’m skeptical of the Caitlyn Jenner publicity machine, I’m glad to hear she’s getting involved with the transgender community. Especially with those transgender men and women less fortunate who need help in developing professional skills for employment. There’s nothing like economic empowerment to make life a little easier.

    I could just puke.

  3. Very mature, Jim Steele. While Caitlyn may not be what you consider the perfect messenger for the transgender community, I think it’s pretty wonderful that she’s helped raise transgender visibility to a whole new level. It feels like there’s the potential for real change in the air, and that maybe we’ve finally reached critical mass in the struggle for acceptance of our transgender brothers and sisters.

    Does Caitlyn have her flaws, and will she make mistakes along the way during this very public journey that she’s on? Since she’s a human being, I think the answer to both of those questions is a resounding yes. But I for one am still very excited by this whole turn of events and I’m very hopeful. As far as your comment, I would suggest that it’s more helpful putting a little positive energy into the world, instead of just making negative comments. Just my two cents. Have a nice day! :-)

  4. What a huge joke.

    @Jim Steele and Joe, Instead of just blurting out your emotions can you at least bring something to the conversation besides putting her down without a reason.

  6. @ Jim Steele-yet you took the time to comment?

  7. @ Scott- Caitlyn’s flaw is her belief that she can bridge the giant chasm her party has when it comes to GLBT equality. I want her to succeed but the reality is she won’t. The party she votes for because she, ‘believes in the Constitution’, as if Democrats don’t, have no interest in bridging that chasm, just making it bigger.

    I hope she realizes this sooner than later and stops supporting the party of hate, exclusion, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny and racism that we all know too well as the modern GOP.
