On Monday, Bruce Jenner introduced the world to her new female identity, "Caitlyn," on the cover and in an intimate editorial in Vanity Fair, shot at her home in Malibu by Annie Leibovitz. When the issue hits newsstands on June 9, Jenner will give readers an in-depth account of what her transition has been like — including how her famous family has dealt with her sharing her secret with the world — and what gave her the courage to finally debut her true self after a lifetime of hiding.
"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 tells Buzz Bissinger, who authors the exclusive profile. Jenner tweeted for the first time under @Caitlyn_Jenner moments after the cover went live:
This is the second time Jenner has spoken publicly and at length about her transition, following an E! special with Diane Sawyer last month, where Jenner officially came clean about becoming a woman.
We applaud Caitlyn for her strength and bravery, and we're anxious to see the full story when it hits newsstands next week.
