Caitlyn Jenner dominated the Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award (shucks, let’s just settle on ESPY) Wednesday night following her incredibly touching speech. You could literally feel the emotions in the air as she poured her heart out; it was not just a speech, it was also a plea of acceptance for all transgenders, not just herself.
Jenner elaborated on the difficulties that all transgenders have to cope with, but also mentioned how her community has taken a step forward in accepting her for what she is. At one point, Caitlyn’s words left her as she thanked her children and her mother for their support.
Her speech followed a 6-minute retro on both her lives, as Bruce as well as Caitlyn, and the struggles she has faced as a famous transgender person.
