Caitlyn Jenner

Olympian, Transgender Rights Advocate, Author, The Secrets of My Life

In 1976, Bruce Jenner broke the world decathlon record by scoring 8,634 points at the Olympic Games in Montreal, earning the title of "World’s Greatest Athlete." Forty years later, he captured the world’s attention again when he revealed that he was transitioning to live his life as a woman during an ABC News special with Diane Sawyer. Two months after this groundbreaking interview, Caitlyn Jenner debuted her new name and look for Vanity Fair—a cover which has become one of the most iconic of the last 50 years.

Since revealing her true self, Caitlyn produced and starred in “I Am Cait,” the landmark series on E! documenting her post-transition life, partnered with M·A·C Cosmetics to donate over $1.3 million to transgender initiatives, and became the face of the H&M “For Every Victory” sportswear campaign. Caitlyn was named Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating Person of the Year in 2015, Out Magazine’s 2015 Newsmaker of the Year, and one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year. She was honored with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at the 2015 ESPY Awards for her transition from Olympic athlete to transgender activist.

In 2017, Caitlyn shared her story in her New York Times bestselling memoir, The Secrets of My Life, co-authored by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Buzz Bissinger. She also started the Caitlyn Jenner Foundation to support organizations doing on-the-ground and impactful work to empower the trans community and further trans rights.

Apart from her work, Caitlyn enjoys flying planes, racing cars in Grand Prix events, working on her golf game, and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
