Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as the Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, on Monday made her carefully protected and strategic debut as a sophisticated transgender woman. Her first introduction to the public, is on the cover of the July 2015 issue of Vanity Fair, posing in a sexy corset, shot by the famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. The cover which reads “Call Me Caitlyn,” unusually has no other headlines, but quickly trended on social media, when the magazine unveiled their July 2015 cover.
Jenner who have had a long public life, was last seen in the media as Bruce, back in April with ABC's Diane Sawyer during a two-hour special. Bruce was an actor, an author, had been on the cover of Playgirl, but his most recent notoriety came as a result of the Kardashian family’s reality television show - where reports emerged that Bruce Jenner was going to become a woman. By Monday, Bruce Jenner had revealed his carefully protected and new identity – Caitlyn Jenner. And what better way to do so but on the cover of Vanity Fair.
The Vanity Fair feature story was written by “Friday Night Lights” author Buzz Bissinger, and reflects on Jenner’s journey to becoming Caitlyn. Jenner was quoted saying, “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.”
Caitlyn Jenner now has a verified Twitter account, where she shared…
I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me.
