Bruce Jenner has revealed herself as Caitlyn.
Vanity Fair has released a preview of its highly-anticipated cover of the 1976 Olympic champion and Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
In the article Jenner says:
‘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 was photographed by veteran photographer Annie Leibovitz who has shot many of the magazine’s most iconic covers over the past 40 years.
Jenner, 65, confirmed in April that she identifies as female and is in the process of transitioning.
‘Bruce always had to tell a lie,’ Jenner says in a behind the scenes video taken during the Vanity Fair shoot. ‘He was always living that lie. Every day, he always had a secret, from morning ’til night. Caitlin doesn’t have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.’
GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis praised Jenner for being public about it all.
‘By sharing her journey with the world, Caitlyn Jenner is accelerating acceptance of transgender people everywhere and reminds us all how important it is to live as your most authentic self,’ Ellis said.
