Bruce Jenner first announced to the world of her transition to becoming a woman to Diane Sawyer in April this year.
To say that it went viral is an understatement and the topic became the hot topic of just not her town, but around the world. During the time of the announcement, Jenner was still using masculine pronouns. Jenner also did not reveal her chosen name nor did she reveal when she would publicly appear as a woman.
Today, the reveal has happened. Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner has made her first public appearance and has done so with aplomb. She did it by announcing to the world her new identity by appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair for July 2015. There is truly no better way to make an announcement!
The cover photo is shot by a renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz and she is really beautiful. The cover line says it all: “Call me Caitlyn.” Vanity Fair also launched a hashtag, #CallMeCaitlyn; which has already taken Twitter by storm, with a host of people showing their support for Caitlyn.
Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner have stated their admiration and support for Caitlyn, along with others on social media.
Jenner’s story in Vanity Fair is written by none other than Buzz Bissinger, the author of Friday Night Lights. Jenner said that she is finally free and no more living a lie. There are now no more secrets and said that as soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, she said “I’m free.” – strong words for a strong woman.
