Invitations to the Donald Trump Inaugural Concert this Friday night, Jan. 20, have been turned down by a lot of A-Listers. But expect at least one celebrity to be there. Caitlyn Jenner has been confirmed to appear at the celebration for the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States. And Trump’s team is urging him to take her to the dance floor for a spin.
A dance with Caitlyn Jenner, the outspoken LGBT activists who transitioned from Bruce Jenner in 2015, would send a certain message. Meanwhile, the LGBT community opposes Donald Trump due to his campaign’s divisive rhetoric. If a photo comes out of the Donald Trump inaugural concert showing the two getting along, it may assuage some of the LGBT community’s outrage and fear.
At least, this is what Trump’s camp is hoping for, according to Vanity Fair. However, while his reps are encouraging such a dance to transmit a message of outreach, Jenner’s rep said that nothing of the sort has been planned. “There have been no discussions,” her rep told People. “I can’t deal in hypotheticals.”
Breaking Down The Fences
In 2016, Caitlyn Jenner remarked, “It was easy to come out as trans; it was hard to come out as Republican.” Nonetheless, the former athlete-turned-reality star is committed to break down the fences by spreading awareness and understanding among both camps:
Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ ?️? issues and I'm here to help!

On one hand, Jenner was supportive of the strides Obama had made for the community, as revealed at a Republican National Convention last year. On the other hand, she admitted that she remains loyal to her party, as influenced by her father’s military career. She also said she would like to make Trump aware of the needs of the marginalized.
Donald Trump Inaugural Concert – Who’ll Be There?
Getting more personalities to make their way to Washington for the inauguration has proved difficult for Trump’s camp. After inviting several performers for the celebration, they received a slew of rejections. Among those who said no to attendance were Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, and Gene Simmons.
Eventually, the team was able to put together a group of performers willing to partake in the celebration. Those will include Tim Rushlow, Jackie Evancho, the Rockettes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
