Caitlyn Jenner Signs With CAA for LGBT Speaking Gigs

The agency and its CAA Foundation will help her bring awareness to the transgender community

Caitlyn Jenner has signed with CAA, which will work with her to create a platform for her activism in bringing awareness to the transgender community, TheWrap has learned.

Jenner is now a client in CAA’s speakers department, which will identify opportunities for her to share her transgender experience and channel the attention from her transition into opportunities to address LGBT issues.

The agency’s philanthropic arm, the CAA Foundation, will also provide strategic counsel in helping Jenner spread her message.

Jenner did not sign with CAA hoping the agency would generate film and television roles for her, as neither side wishes to exploit her newfound celebrity.

Jenner, who won a gold medal at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, will be the recipient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at next month’s ESPYS.
