Celebrities React To Bruce Jenner Coming Out As Transgender

In an interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday night, Bruce Jenner came out as transgender. "I'm me. I'm a person. This is who I am. I'm not stuck in anybody's body. My brain is much more female than male," Jenner said. "For all intents and purposes, I am a woman."

Almost immediately, celebrity support poured in via social media:

Proud son.

Earlier on Friday, Kim Kardashian told Us Weekly: "We're going to watch the special together as a family and that's pretty much all I'll say about that today. I'll let the special come out and speak for itself."

Jenner's kids Brandon and Kylie took to social media ahead of the televised special to show their love and support for their father.

Note: Though Jenner has come out as “for all intents and purposes a woman,” he has not yet indicated that he would like to be known by a new name or female pronouns, so this story uses male pronouns.
