She's set to stimulate public debate on diversity and trans issues.

While she's spoken out about her support for Donald Trump in the past, Caitlyn Jenner has been doubling down on her criticism for the president recently. (You may remember her interview where she said that Trump has set the trans community back by 20 years.)

Well, as BuzzFeed reported, Caitlyn will continue pushing for more diversity next week in the UK, delivering a keynote diversity lecture to the UK government on May 9.

The annual lecture, which takes place in the House of Commons, gives celebrities the opportunity to speak out on the importance of diversity, and his hosted by Channel 4.

A spokesperson told BuzzFeed News: "The aim of the Channel 4 Diversity Lecture is to raise awareness and stimulate public debate about diversity issues. Caitlyn Jenner is one of the most high-profile transgender people in the world and her transition brought transgender issues into the mainstream, helping to stimulate debate and increase awareness."

The last celebs to address parliament were actors Idris Elba, who declared that the TV world doesn't reflect the racial diversity in everyday life, and Riz Ahmed, who tore the British entertainment industry down for its lack of diversity.

We'll be curious to see what Caitlyn brings to the table.
