Bruce Jenner Introduces Himself As Caitlyn Jenner to the World

CAITLAN JENNER

 

In an article and photos released today by Vanity Fair magazine, former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner — who says he has long suffered from gender confusion — made his debut as a woman. The Malibu resident is now Caitlyn
Jenner.
“If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, `You just blew your entire life,” Jenner told Vanity Fair.
The article is accompanied by a series of portraits taken by famed
photographer Annie Leibovitz, including a cover shot of Jenner in white corset.
Jenner, 65, also unveiled the Twitter handle @Caitlyn_Jenner.
“I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self,”
Jenner wrote. “Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for your to get to
know her/me.”
Robert Garcia, the first openly gay mayor of Long Beach, voiced his
support for Jenner on his Twitter page, “Proud of Caitlyn Jenner. She is
showing the world that living an authentic life is real happiness.”
Questions about Bruce Jenner’s gender identity have been raised for
months, and Jenner finally confirmed his transition to a woman in an April
interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer.
“For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman,” Jenner told Sawyer.
Caitlyn Jenner told Vanity Fair she wasn’t making a splashy public debut
to earn accolades.
“This is about your life. Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always
living that lie,” Jenner said. “Every day he always had a secret from
morning til night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets.”
Despite Jenner’s official change in gender identity, an investigation is
still continuing into Bruce Jenner’s involvement in a Feb. 7 crash in Malibu
that killed a Calabasas woman. Kim Howe, 69, was killed in the multi-vehicle
wreck on Pacific Coast Highway and Corral Canyon Road.
