Updated 6 Nov 2017 86.0k views14 items

When Caitlyn (née Bruce) Jenner revealed her new name and her new look on the cover of Vanity Fair's July 2015 issue, the world was watching. The photographs, taken by iconic Vanity Fair photographer Annie Leibovitz, are undeniably breathtaking. They signify so much more than the external appearance of a beautiful woman – they also represent how far Caitlyn Jenner has come in her transition from the male body she says she felt trapped in her whole life. Caitlyn's soul has always been female, and for the first time, the whole world was able to see her as she has always seen herself.  

Fortunately, Caitlyn Jenner has the outspoken support of her entire family. Both the Jenner and the Kardashian clans (including Kanye West and Scott Disick) welcomed Caitlyn to her new life with acceptance and open arms. Each Kardashian/Jenner had a different reaction to seeing Caitlyn as her true self for the very first time. Some reactions were hilarious, some incredibly heartfelt, and all express hope for the future. Caitlyn Jenner has been blessed to receive many words of support, encouragement, and love from her extended family and the public.  

Many transgender individuals do not have the money, power, resources, and visibility that Caitlyn Jenner has. She acknowledges this in her interview with Buzz Bissinger, and makes it clear that she would like to move forward as a guiding light for other people facing the same struggles. 

For those who are curious, we've gathered all of the Jenner and Kardashian family reactions to Caitlyn's transition that were on the record.
