Caitlyn Jenner’s personal journey and athletic legend were united Wednesday night, as the Olympic icon accepted the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage.
Jenner spoke about the great changes in her life, thanking all the people close to her. And she also recognized her social responsibility to spread an important message: “Trans people deserve something vital: They deserve your respect. And from that respect comes a more compassionate community, a more empathetic society, and a better world for all of us.”
