Bruce Jenner Comes Out as Transgender: ‘For All Intents and Purposes, I Am a Woman’

TIME

Olympic gold medalist and TV personality Bruce Jenner confirmed in a new interview late Friday that he is undergoing a long-rumored gender transition, saying it would be his last time known as “Bruce.”

“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” Jenner said in the interview that aired Friday night on ABC. “My heart and my soul and all I do in life, that is part of me.”

“Sexuality is who you personally are attracted to—who turns you on— male or female,” Jenner said. “But gender identity has to do with who you are as a person and your soul, and who you identify with inside.”

Describing to ABC’s Diane Sawyer the process of God assigning traits, Jenner described his best-known attributes and then said: “Let’s give him the soul of a female and let’s see how he deals with that.”
