“About two years ago, I started this thing called ‘Girls’ Night’,” Jenner, 66, told a crowd Tuesday at the 2016 Makers Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. “You have no idea. My entire life when they said, ‘Girls’ Night,’ they would say, ‘Outta the room, you’re gone.’ I would always go, ‘I can’t believe they kicked me out.’ ”
Jenner told the crowd at the women’s leadership conference: “So, two years ago, I started Girls’ Nights. I started with my daughter-in-law [Leah Jenner], a couple close friends. Nobody knew. We had it at my house. We used to have themes, dress-up parties, all that kind of stuff. They were really great. The group started growing.”
With the small group of women rapidly growing, Jenner decided to make things official by making Girls’ Night bracelets.
“I made them for Christmas a little over a year ago,” Jenner said. “Little Girls’ Nights bracelets and you had to be voted in. It was fabulous! You had to be voted in to get a bracelet and then you were officially in the Girls’ Night!”
Prior to her transition, ‘going out’ wasn’t at the top of Jenner’s agenda.
“For so many years, I was very much a loner,” the I Am Cait star said. “I mean, I have a house in Malibu and literally almost six years I never really came out … I never felt like I fit in anywhere. I didn’t fit in with the guys and I didn’t fit in with the girls. I’m kind of stuck right here in the middle. Isolation was the by far the best thing to do.”
Nowadays, Jenner has been known to hit the town with friends. However, nothing could beat the day she had with a conference room full of women on Tuesday.
“I just want you to know, this is the greatest girls night you could possibly have,” Jenner said. “All of you here. You have to be voted in to get the bracelet, but we’ll work on that!”
