Caitlyn Jenner ‘made it rain’ at NYC Pride

Caitlyn Jenner wowed the crowd when she made a surprise appearance at NYC Pride on Sunday.

The 65-year-old Olympic Gold medallist, formerly known as Bruce, came out as a woman earlier this month.

And in light of America’s Supreme Court decision to legalise gay marriage throughout the nation last Friday, Caitlyn took to the streets of the New York City Pride festival to celebrate with the LGBT community.

“Caitlyn made it rain dollar bills [and she was] stuffing money into Candis’ bra,” a source told Page Six of her behaviour while watching drag queen Candis Cayne perform Sunday on the PHD Rooftop at the Dream Downtown.

Onlookers tell the outlet Caitlyn’s forthcoming E! reality docu-series, I Am Cait, was filming all of the shenanigans.

Apparently she couldn’t get enough of the attention fans lavished on her.

“[Caitlyn was] waving to the crowd and loved the attention…Everyone was screaming her name,” the insider detailed.

Her eight-part show I Am Cait debuts on E! network July 26.

A promo released for the programme earlier this month garnered over 4.5 million views within the first 24 hours of its debut.

And in the clip Caitlyn is filmed discussing why it’s important for her to speak out on LGBT concerns.

“So many people go through life and they never deal with their own issues. No matter what the issues are. Ours happen to be gender identity,” Caitlyn said in the one-minute promo. “How many people go through life and waste their entire life because they never deal with themselves and be who they are?

“Isn’t it great that maybe someday you’ll be normal? Just blend into society? Put it this way: I’m the new normal.”
