Caitlyn Jenner couldn't hold back the tears as she discussed her children

The new poster girl for the transgender community is seen celebrating her transition with a group of friends and her 88-year-old mother. Esther Jenner has previously spoken about the long chat in which Cait, formerly Bruce, revealed plans for surgery to become a woman.

Now she admits: "My first feeling was, 'I lost my son.' Then I thought, 'You know what? I'm gaining'."

In the clip, the ladies are also shown clinking champagne glasses in a toast "to Caitlyn".

Caitlyn Jenner promises that there will be 'no more secrets' in her new show

Another scene showed the 65-year-old reality star visiting young transgender people to give them her support. Caitlyn was seen hugging the teenagers - before declaring: "We're all beautiful".

Stepdaughter Kim Kardashian also makes an appearance, helping Caitlyn to organise her wardrobe. A funny moment comes when Kim points out that one of the dresses in the closet is also owned by Kris Jenner, whom Cait was married to in her former life as Bruce. Kim laughs and says: "Mom has that".

Caitlyn and Kim sort through her wardrobe and discover a dress that Kris Jenner also owns

Kim and husband Kanye were among members of the family that gathered to celebrate Father's Day with their former patriarch a few weeks ago. Cait looked relaxed and happy to be surrounded by her nearest and dearest on that special occasion.

Since then she has attended a gay pride event in New York, where she was the star of the parade with fans calling out her name. No doubt helped by advice from Kim, she also showed off her newly minted style credentials in a series of elegant outfits.

Caitlyn has been overwhelmed by support from the transgender community

The key message Caitlyn wants to communicate in her new show which airs on Sunday 2 August is that there are to be "no more secrets" and this promise has made her feel free. The programme is also her way of thanking the trans community for their encouragement which has been "overwhelmingly positive".

"I feel such a responsibility to this courageous group to try to get it right and tell all sides of the story," she says. "To me, that's always the biggest question: am I doing it right?" she said. "...I have so much to discover, and hope you'll join me on this adventure."
