I Am Cait, the E! Reality series that documents the life of Caitlyn Jenner and her friends, split the Outstanding Reality Program category at Saturday's 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards with I Am Jazz, the TLC reality series that follows Jazz Jennings, a South Florida teen who came out transgender at the age of 5.

Jenner, whose series is now in its second season, said that she was honored to share the category with Jennings.

“I'm honored to share this award with Jazz,” Jenner said in accepting the prize. “We have so many issues with trans youth – suicide rates and murder rates – and with your example with your show, it gives these young people hope that they can survive those very difficult times as they grow up trying to figure out who they are.”

Jenner also thanked “her girls,” a reference to the transgender women who appear on I Am Cait.

“You girls have been the backbone [of the show],” Jenner said, speaking directly to her castmates. “You've taught me so much. I've learned so much from you over this last year. You're my absolute best friends. And I know you always have my back. And it's been just wonderful to work with you.”

Singer Demi Lovato and actress-model Ruby Rose were honored at the event, while director Lilly Wachowski made her first public appearance.

Logo on Monday will broadcast a one-hour special on Saturday's event.
