Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award last night during the ESPYS telecast. And it was stunning.
She was stunning. The entire visual of a transgender woman speaking to a room full of athletes with such force and conviction was game changing (pun intended).
I’ll let Caitlyn’s speech speak for itself, but I am completely enamored with Caitlyn Jenner, her spirit and her message.
The timing of this speech couldn’t have been better. Her message of acceptance and respect is long overdue and I have a feeling many who wouldn’t have otherwise been open to her story listened for the first time last night.
After you watch the speech, head over to Ellie Krug’s blog for her reaction to the speech.
Ellie joined us during the Caitlyn Jenner roundtable earlier this summer and will join us again before the premiere to “I Am Cait.”
