Local LGBTQ activist: "I'm proud of Jenner."

Posted: Updated:

Local LGBTQ activists and leaders are speaking out in support of Caitlyn Jenner.

Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, publicly revealed herself this week as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

"I'm very proud of her," said Char Davenport, a local LGBTQ activist and professor. "She's very well spoken, she's intelligent. And, it takes a lot of courage to do what she's doing. In taking the steps she has taken, that just like anybody else in our community, she has put everything on the line."
