Candis Cayne is rooting for Hillary Clinton as President.
“I’ve been a fan of Hillary’s for a long time,” the actor, who is also a transgender activist, says. “I think she’s doing amazing work.”
She says that the main reason why she is supporting Clinton is her Democratic candidate’s record on LGBT issues and women’s rights. The 44-year-old actress believes that is Clinton becomes President, she will “push for rights for trans people” and “that’s a really big thing.”
“The way society is feeling right now, it could be very dangerous for a lot of my trans brothers and sisters,” says Cayne. “That only gets exasperated and becomes a higher issue if somebody who is leading our country doesn’t respect who we are.”
“We have Caitlyn who is conservative. We have me and a bunch of the other girls who are very liberal, and it starts off with a big fight, but I feel like we have to learn how to talk and communicate with each other or nothing will ever get done,” says Cayne.
She also spoke about her disappointment with the Republican party, saying that they have impeded Barack Obama’s progress.
“We really need to work together and I get into it with Cait – some of the other girls do too – and we just start to talk,” says Cayne. “We start with fireworks and then it turns into an actual conversation about what each other believes and how we can make a difference in this world.”
