Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, made her jaw-dropping debut Monday as a transgender woman on the cover of Vanity Fair.
A simple “Call me Caitlyn” reads the cover with Buzz Bissinger interviewing her and longtime Vanity Fair’s photographer, Annie Leibovitz.
“It was, you know, two of the best days of my life. I was always worried – you never wanted to look like a guy in drag, you never wanted to look like a guy in a dress, If you’re going to do that, come out, you really have to look the part,” Jenner shared.
She added, “You have to look very feminine, you have to be able to, what I call my presentation is extremely important because it puts people at ease. And if you can do that, people are at ease, they’re just comfortable being around you.”
When Jenner was facing identity crisis, she was on full isolation and depression. She became absent from his children’s lives.
“The big formative years for them, I was really struggling with theses issues. I talked to them after that. I didn’t do a good job and I apologize to my kids after that,” Jenner told Diane Sawyer during an exclusive ABC news.
Jenner’s children shared that their relationship has improved since then.
“I’m going to go enjoy life. I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul,” Jenner explained to Bissinger.
“To be able to wake up in the morning, be yourself, get dressed, get ready to go out, and just be like a normal person. That’s a wonderful feeling to go through life,” Jenner said. “I’ve never been able to do that; it’s always been confusion, it’s always been, you know, I’ve got one side [with] boy clothes, the other side’s women’s clothes. It’s like I cleaned the whole closet out – the boys stuff is gone.”
Caitlyn Jenner will have a document series airing at E! She also opened a Twitter account which already have more than 1million followers.
