Former Olympian Jenner to Vanity Fair: 'Call me Caitlyn'
Monday June 1st, 2015

Former Olympic decathlete Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, has made her debut as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair

Jenner told ABC News last month that she is now a woman, saying "my brain is more female than it is male."

According to journalist James Andrew Miller, Jenner will receive the Arthur Ashe award for Courage at The 2015 ESPYS.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Jenner said, "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 won the gold medal in the decathalon in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, and also placed 10th in the decathalon in the 1972 Olympics in Munich.
