Bruce Jenner is coming out to the world for the first time as a Transgender. Upon much deliberation, he’s decided to make the big announcement in an exclusive interview with respected ABC News journalist Diane Sawyer.

Not so surprisingly, Jenner’s revelation is said to be part of a big publicity roll-out that will also confirm the rumors that the 65-year-old former Olympian will star in a docuseries (documentary series) on the process of transitioning from male to female.

Bruce first had his Adam’s apple removed, upon which he proceeded to get hormone treatment. Long before he came out to the world, Bruce had been living as a woman behind the privacy of his Malibu home.

In addition to his hormone treatment and some minor reconstructive surgery, Bruce has also been receiving counselling. His surgeon and his doctor advised him to take this course of action in order to prepare him, psychologically, for his transition.
