After weeks of rumours about Caitlyn Jenner's relationship with trans actress Candis Cayne, she has finally decided to speak out about her sexuality on episode 2 of E!'s I Am Cait.
Back in April, Caitlyn told Diane Swayer that she considers herself 'asexual for now' as she got to grips with her transition. 'I am, as far as I know, heterosexual. As far as I know, I've never been with a guy. I've always been married, raising kids.'
Not long after, Kim confronted Caitlyn - then Bruce - about her sexuality on Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce. Speaking about genital surgery, Kim went on to ask if she would consider herself a lesbian. Caitlyn replied: 'I'm not planning on dating yet, I don't know what I'm going to do.'
He went on to say that, as a man, 'I'm totally heterosexual,' to which Kim asked again: 'If you're a woman are you a lesbian?' 'As a guy I was always attracted to women,' replied Caitlyn. 'I think it will be very different. I'm not doing this for that reason, but who knows.'
Since her debut as Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair, there were then growing reports that she was dating close friend Candis and it seems Caitlyn is ready to address their relationship at last.
In the second episode of her reality show, Caitlyn and friend Ronda are packing for a road trip she is taking with a group of her closest trans friends, including Candis. 'You need a sexy [outfit] for Candis,' teases Ronda, as her daughters then ask, 'Who's Candis?' A shy Caitlyn replies: 'We're not going there! [She's] a girl that's going on the trip with us.'
When Ronda then asks, 'Do you find her attractive?' Caitlyn says, 'She's a very attractive lady.' She later adds: 'These girls won't give up. Candis is a beautiful woman, but as far as far as dating in the future, I have absolutely no idea.'
A source recently told the Daily Star that 'they are a very romantic couple' and that 'Cait was so smitten she insisted on dragging Candis in front of the cameras.'
But later in the episode, Caitlyn chats to her friends about struggling with her femininity, thinking out loud: 'You would feel more feminine if you were with a guy. I can appreciate the male form.'
All we know is that it must be incredibly hard trying to get to grips with your sexuality under the spotlight, especially when you are in the process of a very public transition. And really, does it matter, as long as she's happy?
