Here is Jenner’s cover on a “Where Are They Now” issue:
In the interview, where Jenner looks back on her gold medal win, Jenner talked about why she decided to pose wearing her medal.
“It’s a picture that brings attention to this issue,” Jenner explained, talking about the transgender issue. “That’s the important thing. That’s why I wore the medal.”
Jenner also said in the interview that, “When you see what’s happening in this country on the bathroom controversy, politicians just don’t understand or get it at all. When it comes to this subject, the Olympic movement is far ahead of the rest of the world. Good for them.”
We applaud Jenner for her bravery and commitment to bringing attention to transgender rights.
