JUST IN: Caitlyn Jenner Will Reportedly Attend Trump Inauguration
Caitlyn Jenner will attend Friday's inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, People.com reported Wednesday.
According to the report, Jenner was not invited by Trump, but will attend as a guest of the American Unity Fund, a conservative nonprofit that works on behalf of LGBTQ Americans.
The 67-year-old Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner before her transition, "sees this as an opportunity to represent and defend the LGBTQ community within the party," People reported.
Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ issues and I'm here to help!

The former 1976 Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete starred on "I Am Cait," an E! reality show which documented her transition.
On the now-canceled show last year, Jenner said she was "not a fan" of Trump, but thought he'd "be very good for women's issues."
In an interview in June, Jenner said she believed Trump would stand behind the LGBTQ community.
"Everybody looks at the Democrats as being better with these issues. But Trump seems to be very much for women. He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue. He backed the LGBT community," she said.
Just days ago, singer Jennifer Holliday made headlines by apologizing to the LGBTQ community after it was reported that she was considering performing at the festivities. Holliday later revealed she had received death threats which forced her to withdraw from consideration.
