After coming out as a trans woman in an emotional two-hour 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce Jenner has made her debut as Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair. Images of the cover have been starting to make the social media rounds (see below), and seriously — it looks like this will be an instant classic, and a major moment in the history of mainstream recognition of transgender stories.
“Meet Caitlyn Jenner, Vanity Fair’s July cover star,” the post reads. “Pulitzer Prize–winning contributing editor and author of Friday Night Lights Buzz Bissinger, who was given unfettered access to Jenner and her family, chronicles the tensions, traumas, and courage that shaped Caitlyn into the woman you see today. Annie Leibovitz shoots the first portraits of Caitlyn, which were taken in her Malibu home.”
