In the wake of her Friday announcement confirming her run for Governor of California, Caitlyn Jenner is facing backlash in the LGBTQ community.
Jenner announced that she filed the initial paperwork to run for Governor in a statement on Twitter Friday saying "this isn't the California we know. This is Gavin Newsom's California, where he orders us to stay home but goes out to dinner with his lobbyist friends."
"California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality. But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision," the statement reads.
In the wake of her announcement, many LGBTQ activists voiced their distaste on twitter, with hashtags Hell No and Say No To Jenner trending.
George Takei equated Transgender people voting to Jenner to Black people voting for Candace Owens, also pointing out that the disabled community didn't vote for Madison Cawthorn.
Equality California said that they couldn't wait to vote for a Trans governor, but that governor wouldn't be Jenner
Many called Jenner's run a vanity campaign, saying she cared more about her media popularity than actually governing a state.
Others, assuming Jenner would be running as a Republican, brought the party she would be running for into question, although she hasn't formally announced whether she would be running as a Republican or Independent.
