Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, appears for the first time in public on the July cover of Vanity Fair, with a gorgeous image shot by Annie Leibovitz, and the cover line: “Call me Caitlyn.” Vanity Fair‘s story on Jenner is written by Buzz Bissinger, the author of Friday Night Lights.
“Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day he always had a secret from morning to night,” Jenner says in an accompanying video. “Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. Soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out. I’m free.”
Vanity Fair has also launched the hashtag #CallMeCaitlyn; Caitlyn is now on Twitter, where she posted a greeting to the world.
