Bruce Jenner Sits Down On 20/20 With Diane Sawyer

He is a former Olympic athlete, who won a gold medal at the 1976 Olympics. He was also on the show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” However, he also has been in the media for a very long time for many things, including an accident that killed a 70-year-old woman. But, he is also the face of the media due to his decision to become a woman. Yes, Bruce Jenner wants to change into becoming a woman.

The former Olympic decathlon athlete recently sat down with Diane Sawyer to explain his decision to become a woman. He explained how this decision affected him and his family life, as well as how it affected those who knows him personally, as well as identifying himself as a woman. In addition, Jenner discussed with Sawyer of how this process of him becoming a woman went out to the media, and how that decision affected him.

The one-hour interview goes into all aspects into his life, including where he grew up, his family life, how he grew up, his relationship with Kris Jenner and Linda Thompson, Chyrstie Scott, and how this decision affected him. He also discussed the fame and the hardships he goes through when it comes to dealing with the media.

After watching this video, I was motivated and inspired. I was inspired because this is a man who is truly happy with the transition of becoming a woman. This is an individual who was once afraid to be himself because of how the world would react to him being a transgender. I was also motivated because he is now able to finally be the person he deserves to be and become that individual that isn’t afraid to be themselves. It is many like Bruce Jenner who isn’t afraid to be who they are without constantly being judged.

As an individual who works within a community of the LGBTQIA community and someone who works for a social justice program, one thing is that I am very happy for Bruce. Although it was shocking to see and hear that he was transitioning to becoming a woman, it is something that he is happy with. For that, I truly am happy for him and I hope that everyone within the world is more accepting because he is someone who is not only a talented athlete, but someone who is still a human being regardless of him becoming a woman or him being the Bruce Jenner we all once knew and loved.

I am also proud of him for being open enough to tell the world about his transition process. There are quite a few people in this world who aren’t saying anything because of how it will impact their family + friends. However, Bruce is surrounded by many who will stand by his side and continue to support him no matter what his decision is. I commend him for his bravery and I truly do applaud him for being someone who is strong enough to share his experience with the rest of the world.

To Bruce, you are not just an Olympic athlete. You are also not just a star of “Keeping Up The Kardashians.” You are a hero. You are inspirational. You’ve inspired so many individuals to be who they are and to be able themselves and to love who they really are, regardless of their sexual orientation. I applaud you for your bravery and your story was so touching and heart-warming. You are loved.
