On Thursday afternoon Caitlyn Jenner acted as the keynote speaker for a Chicago House fundraising event. Not long after the announcement was made a Facebook group called #IAintCait: Protest Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘Miss Representation’ Luncheon" launched questioning Chicago House's choice of Jenner as their keynote speaker saying that she comes from a place of privilege that does not reflect the reality of most trans people.

As reported by Gossip Cop the protestors wrote the following on their page before confronting Jenner (see video above) on Thursday afternoon:
“Who, you may ask, did they select to speak on the issues facing trans people and especially trans women in our city? Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner, who lives in a mansion and has a net worth of millions of dollars, while the average trans person has a 41 percent chance of experiencing homelessness [sic] and a nearly 50 percent chance of living off less than $10k per year.

Caitlyn Jenner, who said in a segment on her hit new reality TV series I Am Cait, regarding people who rely on social services to get by: ‘You don’t want people to get totally dependent on it. That’s when they get into trouble. ‘Why should I work? You know, I’ve got a few bucks, I’ve got my room paid for.”

If you think Chicago House’s shameless pandering to the trans community for mediocre representation, embodied by a clueless rich white woman who thinks disenfranchised trans women of color should just pluck themselves up off the street and stop being so lazy, is an insult and a disgrace, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
Meet us in the lobby Thursday to tell Chicago House, Caitlyn Jenner, and all her supporters that Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t represent trans people! Stand up and say: #IAintCait!”
