Does Caitlyn Jenner finally support gay marriage? After sounding like she was against the idea on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ Cait took to her blog to say that everyone should be able to marry the ‘person they love.’
Many fans questioned whether Caitlyn Jenner, 65, was really in favor of gay marriage after an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Sept. 8. Ellen actually called Caitlyn out and said, “It’s funny cause you’re still kind of a little not on board with it,” after the I Am Cait star offered her tepid support for gay people being allowed to marry. Now, the former Olympic gold medal winner has taken to her blog to clarify her thoughts on the subject.
“Like many people, there was a time when I didn’t realize how important it is for gay couples to have the right to get married. But after hearing from my gay friends and learning more about the hardships they faced because of discrimination, it became clear to me that everyone should be able to marry the person they love,” she wrote one her website CaitlynJenner.com. We love that Caitlyn made such a strong statement. #LoveWins.

The whole incident began when Caitlyn was being interviewed by Ellen and she offered her thoughts on gay marriage. “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. 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. That’s not my job. Okay. If that word ‘marriage’ is really, really that important to you, I can go with it,” she said while appearing on the show.
