“For you, having been sharing your
story since you were a child, how does it make you feel when you see
someone like Caitlyn Jenner coming forward with her story so much
later in life,” Jennings was asked.
“I think Caitlyn Jenner is so brave
and courageous to come out at that late age,” Jennings answered.
“I wish she could have transitioned
earlier like I have and, you know, was lucky to have that support.
But times were different back then. Things are changing now and we
have this awareness where we're able to transition at this young age.
But for her it was different,” she added.
