As previously reported, last night, Saturday, April 24, Bruce Jenner revealed that he is transitioning into a woman, opening up for the first time about his journey during a candid sit-down with Diane Sawyer.
”Yes, for all intents and purposes I am a woman,” Jenner told Sawyer. “My brain is much more female than it is male. People look at me differently. They see you as this ‘macho male,’ but my heart and my soul and everything I do in life, it is part of me, that female side is part of me. It’s who I am. I was not genetically born that way.”
Soon after the former Olympian spoke out about his transition, he was met with a wide variety of criticism from the uber right and Christian Right as well as the uber left who seemed more offended that Jenner is a Republican.
But it was the words of praise and support from celebrities, like Oprah Winfrey, Russell Simmons, Lady Gaga, Andy Cohen, his family and many more that the 65-year-old will carry with him during this long journey. For celebrity tweets supporting Jenner, hit the flip.
