American celebrity, formerly known as Bruce Jenner an athlete, father of 6 children, who recently decided to change gender, became the woman of the year.
With her brunette locks in a tousled up do, she smiled enigmatically as she posed for the cameras ahead of accepting her Transgender Champion award.
Jenner was on the scene to be honored for her transgender advocacy work. The 66-year-old star of I Am Cait joined Reese Witherspoon, dancer Misty Copeland, and Victoria Beckham as honorees.
Since introducing her true identity in an April interview with Diane Sawyer, Caitlyn has debuted on the cover of Vanity Fair and used her platform to help bring attention to the long-underserved transgender community’s issues.
“I started thinking, maybe this is why God put me on earth,” she said in a Glamourinterview. “This issue has been swept under the rug for so long. I need to tell this story on the highest level you can possibly do it. Not just for me but for this entire community.”
Caitlyn posted an adorable Instagram of her hugging daughter Kylie Jenner while holding a handwritten “Dream Big, Work hard” sign.
