Who Is Chandi Moore? 'I Am Cait' Season 2 Brings This Outspoken Advocate Back To E!
The E! docuseries focusing on Caitlyn Jenner's life, I Am Cait, returns for Season 2 on Sunday, March 6. Trailers for the upcoming season state that “last year, she changed her life,” and “this year, she’ll live it," as she's seen spending time with friends and continuing her activism. With more of her life and friends taking the spotlight this season, viewers may want to get to know the women supporting Caitlyn, such as I Am Cait star Chandi Moore.
While Cait's friends are her biggest cheerleaders, they also challenge her and help her continue to grow. In addition to Chandi, Season 2 will feature the returns of Candis Cayne, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Kate Bornstein, and Zackary Drucker, as well as the addition of a new cast member, 18-year-old Ella Giselle. Though I'm looking forward to seeing everyone this season, I'm most excited about the return of Chandi to the reality series, when she embarks on a season-long road trip with the group. They'll stop at places like the Grand Canyon and New Orleans to hear from trans people across the country, and with Chandi in tow, it's sure to be memorable. Before she returns to TV on Sunday night, here's what you should know about Chandi.
1. She Is An Activist
According to The Cut, Chandi is a member of Trans Girl in Action Divas, whose goal is, "educating, empowering and enabling the world to see that we are." Chandi told the Huffington Post that Trans GIA Divas "was started by girls who wanted to do more work in the community," and has partnered with other organizations to feed the homeless and "connect the community." Fans have also seen some of Chandi's activism on I Am Cait, as she has encouraged Caitlyn to use her role as a celebrity to shed light on issues facing trans people.
2. She Is A Health Educator
According to her LinkedIn, Chandi works in HIV testing & counseling with Children's Hospital Los Angeles, as a health educator for the Trans Youth Program at CHLA, and has been involved in several health campaigns for the LGBTQ community in LA.
3. She's A Big Beyoncé Fan
Of course, who isn't a big Beyoncé fan?
4. She Likes Hanging Out With Her Co-Stars
Chandi's Instagram is full of pictures with the I Am Cait crew, and it's nice to see that they really do enjoy spending time together.
5. Her Instagram Is Inspirational
Chandi’s Instagram is the Pinterest inspiration board you never got around to making. Follow her for your daily dose of motivation.
6. She Isn't Afraid To Speak Her Mind
Chandi always tell it like it is, and that includes giving Caitlyn a reality check sometimes on I Am Cait, like when she said, "We made it clear to Caitlyn that a lot of other girls are going to be jaded because the things that Caitlyn has been able to achieve in a few months, some will never be able to achieve those things in their whole entire life."
7. Caitlyn Isn't The Only Jenner She Likes
In an interview with E! News, Chandi and Candis spoke very highly of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, praising their close relationship with Caitlyn and support for her.
Hopefully, we'll get to know Chandi even better as I Am Cait Season 2 progresses.
