Jeffrey Tambor Doesn't Think Caitlyn Jenner Is A 'Figurehead' For Transgender Community!

Jeffrey Tambor is dapper in a suit while attending the season three premiere of his hit show Transparent held during the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival at The Elgin on Sunday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada.

The 72-year-old actor was joined by his co-stars Kathryn Hahn, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker, Alexandra Grey, Jay Duplass, and creator-writer Jill Soloway.

While promoting season three, Jeffrey claimed that Caitlyn Jenner should not be held as a “figurehead” for the transgender community.

“Not everyone in the transgender community looks like Caitlyn, has as much money as Caitlyn, has as much power, obviously don’t have TV shows, but with her story, with her knowledge, with her courage, there’s a phrase – she floats all boats,” Jeffrey told the Press Association. “I don’t think she’s a figurehead and I don’t think she’s come out as a figurehead and that’s where the mistake would be. She’s just a person. I’m for her. It’s about people. The publicity of it sheds light on the stories and that’s the good part of it.”
