The 2016 GLAAD awards brought some wonderful moments such as Taylor Swift surprising Ruby Rose and Jazz Jennings’ “I am Jazz” tying with Caitlyn Jenners “I am Cait” for Outstanding Reality Program.
Also that evening, it was announced by Jill Soloway, the creator of “Transparent,” that Jenner will appear on the show in scenes alongside Jeffrey Tambor during season 3. These scenes will begin filming later this month.
In an interview at the awards show, Soloway said that getting Jenner on the show was a “dream come true.”
She added, “We are all part of the same community. A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show, ‘I Am Cait. Lots of crossover. Lots of friends,” Soloway said to the Associated Press.
Though Soloway didn’t say what Jenner’s role will be on the show, her presence will definitely bring more viewers.
