Jenner has also been profiled by Pulitzer Prize-winning contributing editor Buzz Bissinger.

Speaking to Bissinger, Jenner said: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life.’”

Ellen tweeted her support at the time, saying Jenner was a “beautiful, brave human being”.

Actress Linda Thompson, who was married to Jenner for five years in the 1980s, wrote a column for The Huffington Post in which she discusses her feelings on the transition.

Earlier this year, Laverne Cox spoke about her support of Jenner and what she said when they spoke.
