Bruce Jenner Comes Out as Transgender: “For All Intents And Purposes: I Am a Woman”
The Olympic gold medalist and TV personality opened up about his journey

In an interview with Diane Sawyer broadcast Friday night, Olympic gold medalist and TV personality Bruce Jenner, who said it was the last interview conducted under the name “Bruce,” confirmed what has been long rumored; Jenner is undergoing a gender transition.

“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” Jenner said. “My heart and my soul and all I do in life, that is part of me.”

Describing to Sawyer the process of God assigning traits, Jenner described his best-known attributes and then said: “Let’s give him the soul of a female and let’s see how he deals with that.”

Sawyer informed her audience that Jenner began a hormone treatment in the 1980s but stopped due to his own religious beliefs and his fear of embarrassing his children.

Jenner didn’t necessarily deny his past as an Olympian and, for a time, the paragon of machismo as far as the public was concerned. When Sawyer gave Jenner his (and Jenner noted he prefers masculine pronouns for the time being) Wheaties box, Jenner said: “I am proud of that moment.” But as far as the wildly popular persona was concerned, Jenner said: “Being Bruce isn’t easy.”

Asked about whether or not his story was a publicity stunt, Jenner replied: “What I’m doing is going to do some good and we’re going to change the world.”
