Last night was Glamour magazine's Women of the Year Awards and Caitlyn Jenner had the spotlight on her once again as she was honored with the Transgender Champion Award!
Caitlyn has already been such an inspiration this year, so much so that she even won the ESPYS' Arthur Ashe Courage Award, and last night just added to the long list of accomplishments on Miz Jenner's resume.
The big moment came though when Judith Light presented Caitlyn with the Transgender Champion Award and the former Olympian took the stage to give her speech (below).
The reality star was honored to win the award and talked about her experience transitioning and specifically what she's gone through over the past year. After touching on dealing with the transition and the emotional talks she had with her children, Jenner went on to speak about how her decision brought her so much joy saying:
"Over the last six months, it has been the most eye-opening experience of my life. For years and years, I never felt like I fit in anywhere. I always felt as an outsider. I never felt good on the male side and I wasn't obviously on the female side. I was kind of stuck in the middle, but all of a sudden, after making this decision and coming out, it was by far the best thing I ever did, because for so many years, I lost my enthusiasm for life. I literally would be standing in my house for almost six years because I never wanted to come out, just to go to work, that's about it. Now, actually, I like going out and I like being myself."
Caitlyn also revealed that she just recently received her driver's license with the gender marker "F" while telling a funny anecdote about reading Glamour over the years:
"To Glamour magazine, I got to tell you a story quickly. I haven't been on the airlines for over a year. Why? Because I haven't had an authentic ID. Finally, last week I got my driver's license and gender marker F. It's always the little things in life. I am sitting on the plane for the first time reading Glamour magazine and not having to fold over the cover so no one can see what I was actually reading, and I had it opened up beautifully and just reading through Glamour magazine was absolutely great. So thank you, Glamour magazine for honoring me tonight. I never in a million years thought I'd be here and I am sure you didn't either."
