WATCH: Caitlyn Jenner Presented Glamour Woman Of The Year Award


Glamour Magazine honoured trans trailblazer, Caitlyn Jenner with the Transgender Champion award at American GLAMOUR’s Women of the Year awards.


Since coming out as trans a little over six months ago, Jenner has shone a spotlight on trans issues in America and has done her best to preach understanding and acceptance with her reality docu-series, I Am Cait. On Monday night, the 66 year-old former Olympian was honoured with a coveted Glamour Woman of the Year Award.

When accepting, Jenner opened up about her journey thus far. “Over the last six months, it has been the most eye-opening experience of my life.

“For years and years, I never felt like I fit in anywhere. I always felt as an outsider. I never felt good on the male side and I wasn’t obviously on the female side. I was kind of stuck in the middle, but all of a sudden, after making this decision and coming out, it was by far the best thing I ever did, because for so many years, I lost my enthusiasm for life. I literally would be standing in my house for almost six years because I never wanted to come out, just to go to work, that’s about it.

“Now, actually, I like going out and I like being myself.”
