World, meet Caitlyn Jenner

Speaking publicly for the first time since completing gender transition

“Everyday he always had a secret, from morning till night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. Soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”

After reporting yesterday Bruce Jenner was going to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair as a woman for the first time, we didn’t think it would happen so soon!

World, meet Caitlyn Jenner.

It’s her first interview since completing her gender transformation and we have to say, we’re in awe.

Caitlyn did the interview with Vanity Fair’s contributing editor and author of Friday Night Lights Buzz Bissinger. The full story hits US newsstands on June 9 but it really will be a ‘tell all’ type of deal.

From discussing the various surgeries (Caitlyn has not undergone genital surgery it is revealed), to how it’s affected the brood, Caitlyn will not hold back.

“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. You never dealt with yourself,’ and I don’t want that to happen.”

Something we couldn't help but notice is that although there’s big changes outwardly, on the inside that wicked sense of humour remains.

The journalist apologises to Jenner for repeated pronoun confusion and asks whether she is sensitive about it. “I don’t really get hung up,” she tells him. “A guy came in the other day and I was fully dressed—it’s just habit, I said, ‘Hi, Bruce here,’ and I went, Oh fuck, it ain’t Bruce, I was screwing up doing it.”

She also reveals Brandon Jenner was a little taken aback when he saw Caitlyn for the first time after surgery and she pulled her top up to reveal her new breasts. “Whoa, I’m still your son,” he reminded her.

The Vanity Fair cover comes two months after Jenner’s public coming out in April in a special interview with Diane Sawyer on US news program20/20where she identified herself as transgender.

Jenner’s journey will continue in an E! docuseries, About Bruce, which will premiere in July.
