Caitlyn Jenners I Am Cait Hires 3 Transgender ConsultantsDiane Sawyers April 24 interview with Caitlyn Jenner on ABC was not just a ratings hit (20.7 million vie

wers), but a critical one too, with consensus that the two-h

our news special had managed to handle with sensitivity a difficult subject. Now comes I Am Cait, E!s eight-part documentary series set to premiere July 26, about Jenners gender transition and its impact on the networks linchpin Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan. E!, not known for tonal delicacy in its handling of social issues on su

ch staples as Shahs of Sunset and Botched, has brought on a trio of well-regarded transgender consultants two Los Angeles-based therapists plus Jennifer Finney Boylan, the national co-chair of GLAADs board of directors to keep the series, produced by Bunim/Murray, in line. The channel declin

ed to answer questions about

the hires (including whether any experts turned E! down and whether the decision to bring them on originated with owner NBCUniversal) or make the consultants themselves available for interviews.  Spotlight Story Kobe Bryant Had a Singular Impact on His Game and the World Bryant died in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles on Sunday, along with his daughter Gianna  So The Hollywood Reporter reached out to eight other prominent voices in the countrys transgender community, all of whom are aware that Jenners story is quickly becoming the de facto reference point (replacing Christine Jorgensen and Chaz Bono) for anyone who has no personal experience with the

transgender issue. They voiced a mixture of hope and anxiety about E!s plans for handling it, and especially how much producers, whether intentionally or otherwise, might try to make Jenner into a symbol for the entire transgender movement, when her case a late-in-life transition, a famously macho and wealthy white male celebrity with multiple outwardly supportive family members is sui generis. Shes very atypical, says Calpernia Addams, an actress and activist who advised Jared Leto on his portrayal of the transgender Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. Still, even if the message that E! ends up sending isnt perfect, observes Aidan Key, the founder of the Seattle-based advocacy organization Gender Diversity, visibility and representation of transgender lives in the media has a pretty significant value. Most are reassured, however, by

the presence of Boylan in particular. Its hard to imagine that shed be involved in something exploitative, says Dr. Michael LaSala, an associate professor at Rutgers School of Social Work. Yet theyll be on high alert for subtleties, or lack thereof such as whether the show talks about changing sex rather than gender. (Nobody can change sex its a biological thing, a genetic thing, says Dr. Sandy Stone, a media theorist at the University of Texas at Austin. Gender is a social construction, performative.) What they most collectively desire: eschewing what they feel is often the medias cheap, voyeuristic focus on physical changes whether surgical, hormonal or apparel in favor of transformations in relationships that affect both the transgendered subject and everyone around him or her. The real story of human beings who transition cant be

told with one individual, saysDr. Stephen Levine, a clinical professor of psychiatry at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
