Caitlyn Jenner has firmly rejected claims that she hasn't done "enough" to support the transgender community.

Caitlyn, who shares daughters Kendall and Kylie with TV matriarch Kris Jenner, expressed her frustration at the backlash she received despite establishing the now-discontinued Caitlyn Jenner Foundation and making substantial donations of $2.5 million to transgender organizations. In an interview with the Evening Standard newspaper before the release of the new Sky documentary series, 'House of Kardashian,' Caitlyn stated, "I started a foundation, gave away millions, $2.5 million to trans organizations.

Caitlyn affirmed, "I wanna be an example of any person that's suffering from gender dysphoria because gender dysphoria is real: it does happen, it’s very rare but it does happen. I want to be an example that you can be, whoever you may be right now, and you can go through with it, and your life can be good, and my life is good. The best part of my life today is I wake up in the morning and I just be myself all day long. I don’t have to lie to anybody. I don’t have to keep secrets. I felt that my whole life, I don’t have to sneak around nothing."
