NEW YORK — Vanity Fair on Monday revealed its newest cover star: Caitlyn Jenner, the Olympian formerly known as Bruce, who has publicly shared her transition from male to female.
After months of media speculation, Jenner announced in April “I am a woman” in an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer. The latest issue of Vanity Fair chronicles Caitlyn's journey and announces to the world her newly public identity.
“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 told Vanity Fair.
Jenner also changed her name and profile picture on Twitter, and tweeted:
"I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."
