In her first sit-down television interview, Caitlyn Jenner opens up about what it's like to be a Republican transgender woman.
During her chat with Ellen DeGeneres (which will air on DeGeneres' talk show on Sept. 8), the 65-year-old former Olympian is asked what she thinks about some of the stances on gay marriage and other LGBT issues within her political party.
"A lot of Republicans -- I don't want to speak for everyone -- would vote against all the issues that you, as a woman and you as a trans person, would want someone to support," DeGeneres pointed out.
"I have to admit that I remember 15 years ago, 20 years ago, whenever it was the whole gay marriage issue came up at first, I was not for it," she told the daytime host. "I mean, I like tradition and it's always been between a man and a woman, and I’m thinking I don’t quite get it."
Jenner has since altered her point of view on the issue.
"But as time goes on, like a lot of people on this issue, I've really changed thinking here to, I don't ever want to stand in front of anybody's happiness," she continued. "That's not my job, OK. If that word 'marriage' is really, really that important to you, I can go with it."
When DeGeneres tells Jenner that she still doesn't seem "quite on board" with the idea of gay marriage, the reality star insists that she supports same-sex unions.
"No, I'm on board. It's going to be pretty much the law of the land," Jenner said. "So I still feel like, yeah, I'm OK with it. I don't want to stand in front of somebody's happiness."
"For me, I'm at such a different place in life. I already have too many children. Just kidding," Jenner, who has 10 kids, quipped. "I've kind of passed that stage in my life, but yes, would I like to find a partner in life to share my life with. ...As time goes on I'll deal with that subject."
