Caitlyn Jenner gets confessional in a new trailer for I Am Cait.

Unable to sleep, she tells the camera at 4:32 a.m. that her thoughts are on the young people in the transgender community, to whom she feels a responsibility. “We don’t want people dying over this. We don’t want people murdered over this stuff,” she says.

Her words in the 50-second spot echo her ESPY Awards speech, where she used her platform to advocate for the respect of trans people everywhere, bringing light to the senseless deaths of transgender teens like Mercedes Williamson and Sam Taub. 

As such a public representative of the community, Jenner worries that she may not always say the right thing. “I just hope I get it right,” she says. “I hope I get it right.” 


I Am Cait premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on E!.
