According to The Huffington Post, who premiered the piece, "This is the first article in a special original series written by Caitlyn Jenner for WhoSay called "The Real Me," which will explore issues and people in the LGBT community."
"This is the first in a series of editorials where I will discuss the serious issues and lessons that I am learning through this process," she announced, "I have so much to discover and hope that you’ll join me on this adventure."
In the post, Caitlyn sheds light on some of the darker issues many transgender people face. "I’ve heard every horror story there is in the book," she wrote, "You wouldn’t believe the types of ordeals these people have had, how they have had to literally fight for their own survival. Many trans teens are bullied and abused in high school. It’s just horrendous. Then there’s the other dark side of this issue: did you know that nearly 25% of the women in high-end sex business are reportedly trans women?"
It was these same friends who helped motivate Caitlyn to create her new editorial series. "Seeing how my new friends have overcome their adversities is such an inspiration," Caitlyn wrote, "They are so well-adjusted and smart. I’ll be sharing their stories here in the coming weeks and I can’t wait for you to get to know them. They are just like you and me."
