VIDEO: Behind The Scenes as CAITLYN Bruce Jenner Vanity Fair Cover

Meet Caitlyn Jenner, Vanity Fair’s July cover star. Pulitzer Prize–winning contributing editor and writer of Friday Night LightsBuzz Bissinger, who was given liberated access to Jenner and her family, accounts the pressures, injuries, and fearlessness that formed Caitlyn into the lady you see today. Annie Leibovitz shoots the first portraits of Caitlyn, which were taken in her Malibu home.

Jenner talks movingly about her journey, telling Bissinger, “On the off chance that I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this mystery and never at any point made a move, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your whole life.’

So far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive:

In April, Bruce Jenner sat down with Diane Sawyer to reveal to the world that he would be transitioning into a woman “sometime in the spring.”

Caitlyn’s children have yet to respond to the cover on their own social media accounts, but in the past have been very supportive of their father.
