Caitlyn Jenner and Candis Cayne attended the Boy George concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Jenner took the stage to provide an intro for Boy George, earning a standing ovation, reported Us Weekly.
Although Caitlyn danced with Candis during the Boy George concert, they are not dating, contrary to rumors.
“Thank you very much! Thank you! Caitlyn Jenner in the house for her first Boy George concert!” she revealed just hours prior to the debut of her transgender docu-series, I am Cait. “This is going to be a good group. Thank you so much. Enough about me. Thank you for being here tonight This is so much fun for me and let’s hear it here at the Greek Theatre for Boy George!”
Initially not recognized in her form-fitting gown with a jacket and long, flowing dark hair, the 65-year-old then got the crowd on its feet.
“People gradually started screaming and clapping, rising to their feet when they recognized it was her,” said an insider.
“I expected a standing ovation for her and I wasn’t disappointed,” said Boy George. “We need to celebrate the kinds of changes that are happening.”
Entering with a group that included cameramen and a few other women, Jenner took a party bus to the venue. They had champagne with them. Candis Cayne mingled with Jenner’s crowd at the Boy George concert.
“She looked very happy,” said the observer. “People on the deck were high-fiving each other saying, ‘I saw Caitlyn Jenner!'”
As for whether Caitlyn and Candis are dating, insiders have made it clear that they are friends who may enjoy dancing together at events such as Boy George’s concerts, but they have no plans to go beyond being platonic pals.
“Candis is currently single but is only interested in men, and Caitlyn is a woman,” explained an insider.
As the Inquisitr reported, Caitlyn and Candis attended the ESPY Awards together, and the tabloids immediately published reports that romance was blossoming between the women, both of whom are transgender rights activists and have become pals as a result.
As to the decision on Jenner’s part to have Candis accompany her to the ceremony, Cayne has served as a mentor. That made the ESPY ceremony, at which Jenner received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, especially significant.
I Am Cait begins July 26, reported the Los Angeles Times.
Airing on the E! channel, the docu-series gives Caitlyn the opportunity to explore transgender issues as well as offer insights into her new life.
“Am I going to project the right image,” said Jenner. “I hope I get it right. I just hope I get it right.”
