Caitlyn Jenner formerly Bruce Jenner from Keeping up with the Kardashians made her first appearance on the cover of Vanity Fair Monday, flashing a promiscuous stare at the camera while robed in a pearl holster, with the words “Call Me Caitlyn” paraded across the bottom.
Caitlyn Jenner, who once identified as the strapping 80’s olympic decathlon champion, Bruce, discussed her gender transition and what it was like for not only her friends and family, but herself, trapped in a man’s body and the emotional distress it caused her everyday.
“Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Everyday, he always had a secret,” Ms. Jenner expressed to Vanity Fair, “Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets.”
The photograph serving as the cover photo for the magazine was taken by Annie Leibovitz, and the story accompanying the cover was written by esteemed pulitzer prize winner, Buzz Bissinger, best known for his authoring of the book “Friday Night Light’s”.
Caitlyn’s story is no secret, as Diane Sawyer had conducted an interview on ABC in April with the former olympic athlete and current reality series star before the transition, drawing in nearly 17 million viewers, and keeping her new name a secret to the public.
Now that Caitlyn is finally “free”, her and her entourage of publicists plan on taking a series of steps, ones that include creating a new twitter for the celebrity, which acquired more than 150,000 followers within the first five minutes of the accounts activation, as well as a new series on E! starring Caitlyn in the works, debuting in late July.
“If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never did anything about it, I would be lying there saying ‘You just blew your entire life,’” Caitlyn said in her interview with Mr. Bissinger.
