Caitlyn Jenner, Formerly Bruce Jenner, Wears A Silk Bodysuit For First Public Appearance As A Woman

Now that’s what we call breaking the Internet.

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, has debuted “her” on the June cover of Vanity Fair.

In her first public appearance as a woman since coming out as transgender, the cover, shot by Annie Leibowitz, features a smiling Caitlyn in a white silk strapless bodysuit.

Meet my little brother Jamie, he’s 8 years old and loves to wear dresses. Tonight was the first night I’ve ever put makeup on him. This is the happiest I’ve ever seen him. His dad (my stepdad) doesn’t allow him to wear clothes like this, even if he’s just playing in the house. He says that dresses are made for girls and gay men. But my sister and I strongly disagree. Wearing dresses doesn’t mean Jamie is gay, it means that he likes wearing dresses. I want my brother to grow up knowing that it’s okay to dress however you want. The only thing I want is for my brother to be happy, like he was tonight, for the rest of his life. I just want him to be able to be himself 24/7.

One in three LGBT kids will go through some form of “conversion therapy” in their lifetime. But not all of them get away with an unhealthy dose of sex-shaming and a handful of ignorant lectures; some of those kids will be locked in a room and literally tortured.We spoke to Sam Brinton, a spokesperson for the National Center for Lesbian Rights and veteran of conversion therapy, about what happened to him. If you own a particularly fluffy puppy, now would be a good time to call them over in preparation for emergency snuggles.
