Various LGBTQ+ activists recently criticized former Olympian Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn Jenner, after he announced on Friday he will run for governor of California as a Republican.

"I can't see how the conservative policies [Jenner] is likely to embrace will help Californians," said transgender activist Jennifer Finney Boylan.

Boylan appeared on multiple episodes of Jenner's TV Show "I Am Cait."

"It matters to us what policies candidates support — and what their track record might be — on a full range of issues, not just trans rights and inclusion," Sasha Buchert, co-director of the Transgender Rights Project at Lambda Legal, an LGTBQ-rights group.

"That is the lens one should always use in evaluating any candidate, including Caitlyn Jenner."
