Caitlyn – who was an Olympic champion in her younger years as Bruce – urged athletes to be more accepting of transgender people during her moving speech.
“This transition has been harder on me than anything I could have imagined. And that’s the case for so many others besides me. For that reason alone, trans people deserve something vital. They deserve your respect,” Caitlyn said.
