Twitter on Sunday night was overflowing with praise for Caitlyn Jenner’s new E! reality show I Am Cait. Trans advocates, celebrities and viewers alike lauded the show, more than anything, for ensuring that the spotlight was no more trained on Jenner personally than the issues facing the larger transgender community, and especially those without the resources or privileges enjoyed by the legendary Olympian.

From fellow transgender advocate Jazz Jennings to singer Courtney Act, the Twitterverse was full of gratitude that a show like I Am Cait not only exists, but appears to be taking every measure to make the most of its platform. Several tweeters also pointed out the significance of the support shown to Jenner by her mother, Esther, and as well as son-in-law Kanye West.
