Caitlyn Jenner joined her famous daughters in breaking the internet when she announced her transition by boldly stating, Call me Caitlyn. Jenner graced the covers of magazines and is quickly becoming an LGBT icon, but she isn’t the first celebrity to go through such a momentous change in the public spotlight.
Khloé Kardashian sat down with David Arquette to talk about how his sister, Alexis Arquette, dealt with transitioning 10 years ago. A decade might not seem like much time, but public opinion has changed a lot since everyone followed along with Alexis’ transition in her 2007 documentary Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother.
According to David, Alexis was the type of kid that always dressed up and identified as a girl. And, like many people, it looks like she’s still evolving herself as a person.
“After Caitlyn had her transition, [Alexis] was like ‘I’m not transgender anymore,’” said David Arquette. Alexis also referred to herself as “gender suspicious,” says David, in that “sometimes [she’ll] be a man, sometimes [she’ll] be a woman.”
Props to Alexis Arquette for celebrating her individuality, and to David Arquette for sharing the story. To get more exclusive info on David Arquette, Taye Diggs, Kat DeLuna and Katie O’Brien, be sure to check out Kocktails with Khloé!
