Greg Louganis wants to chat with Caitlyn Jenner
Former Olympic diver Greg Louganis has revealed he would love to sit down for a chat with fellow Olympian Caitlyn Jenner.
The out gay athlete told Huff Post Live’s Josh Zepps he would love a natter with Jenner on her journey.
"It doesn't matter if you're transgender. It doesn't matter if you're straight; it doesn't matter if you're gay or lesbian. We all have a journey, and I'd love to share [in Caitlyn's] journey," he said.
Louganis is currently doing the publicity rounds for a new documentary about his life, Back on Board, Greg Louganis.

The 55-year-old athlete also suggested there still remained a lot of mystery even within the LGB community surrounding trans people.
"I know a lot about the 'G' in LGBT, but I had to do a lot of learning about the 'L,' the 'B' and the 'T,'" he said. "The 'T' is so foreign to so many within our community, and I was just blessed that I was able to share an experience onstage with Alexandra Billings,” he said, speaking of his time in the late 90s when he shared a stage with the Transparent star in Larry Kramer’s play Just Say No.
