THE TRANSGENDER TURNING POINT: Bruce Jenner and Andreja Pejic
After months and months of speculation and build-up, Bruce Jenner (stepfather of the Kardashians and father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner) has finally admitted in an interview with Diane Sawyer that he identifies himself as a woman.
In the exclusive tell-all, Bruce says that he has always been confused about his gender ever since he was a child, admitting that he even took hormone pills for five years back in the 80's.

It has been a huge and important week for the LGBT community. Besides Bruce Jenner's inspirational and emotional revelation, the story of Andreja Pejic also made headlines recently.
Andreja, a 23-year old model from Bosnia, became the first transgender model to be featured in Vogue. Additionally, she is also the new face of Make Up For Ever, making her one of the first transgenders to score a major modelling campaign.
