Caitlyn Jenner -- who came out as transgender seven months ago -- was recognized for her LGBT advocacy work at Glamour magazine's 25th annual Women of the Year awards last night at Carnegie, being hailed "The Trans Champion."
"I am so blessed I have family. And not one of them has abandoned me; they've all been support of me. It's incredible," Jenner said in a video collage before taking the stage. "Of all the things I've done in my life, Caity is why God put me on this earth: to tell my story; to be honest with myself about who I am. And in doing that, making a difference in the world. And I'm very happy to be living on the other side."Keep up the good work, gurl!
