Bruce Jenner - Showing Society She's True To Herself

We've all seen the tabloids and read the articles about Bruce Jenner. However, if you're like me, you've waited for him to come out to the public on his own - sans dozens of flashing cameras. In an exclusive interview with Barbra Walters on April 24th, 2015, Bruce Jenner announced to the world that, in fact, is a female. 

I'm not going to elaborate on this subject because every major news outlet has already done so. However, as an advocate for the LGBT community, I am in FULL support of Bruce Jenner and his decisions. As a society, we should be able to embrace each other for who they are and who they aspire to be. No amount of fame can buy happiness, which I can see is something that Bruce understands. By being happy with himself, he not only brings pride and relief to his family (a.k.a. the Kardashian - Jenner clan), but most importantly to HIMSELF!

Now, if you're only joining the transgender-bandwagon because he's part of the, what I like to call, Firs Family of Reality Television, then you can click the 'X.' Being a member of the LGBT community is not something to just be a part of, but most importantly, embrace. By being in full support of Bruce, then I would expect nothing less than fully supporting those transitioning in your own community. Whether you're a shoulder to cry on or an ally, you can make a difference - just like the Kardashian-Jenner family is doing for their father.
