“Caitlyn has been a Republican all her life and she sees this as an opportunity to represent and defend the LGBTQ community within the party,” a source said. “Caitlyn sees this as a chance to bring attention to LGBTQ causes and she is committed to protecting human rights no matter the political party in power.”
“She has no problem speaking out if Republicans fail to protect equal rights.”
On Wednesday, Jenner made similar comments via Twitter without announcing her appearance.
“Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ issues and I’m here to help,” Jenner tweeted.
