Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce posed for the cover of Vanity Fair for the first time and her debut as a woman created a massive explosion on the social media outlet Twitter.
Bruce who informed the world that he would become a woman while talking to Diane Sawyer in April, is now officially Caitlyn.
Caitlyn posted to her Twitter account today the cover of Vanity Fair with her on it titled “Call me Caitlyn” and then posted this tweet;

Finally free. This made me stop. The feeling of freedom. You go @Caitlyn_Jenner! https://twitter.com/vanityfair/status/605406096824647681 …
The love outweighed the hate from what I could see on social media as it was all that was being shared everywhere you looked.
The best tweets and posts came from Caitlyn’s children, who showed their love and undying support for their father;

Caitlyn said that she was finally free, she was finally able to be who she was born to be and who made her happy. After 65 years, it was finally time.
In the video that was shown with the Vanity Fair cover shoot Bruce who had not come out as Caitlyn yet said this;
“The last few days in doing this shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare. It’s not about people cheering in the stadium. It’s not about going down the street and everybody giving me [a] ‘Thataboy, Bruce!’ pat on the back, OK? This about your life. Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day, he always had a secret from morning ’til night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. Soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”
As many say that Bruce/Caitlyn is doing this for attention, more fame, money, Caitlyn had this to say regarding those comments;
“I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live.”
Caitlyn also broke a record on Monday, after starting her new Twitter account, Caitlyn reached 1 million followers in the fastest time ever according to Guiness, in just four hours and three minutes. Beating Obama.
For Caitlyn she is happy now, and that is all she ever wanted to be.
