Transgender women sharing their wisdom about beauty and beyond

Somehow many of us always seem to be informed about the Kardashians, Kim being pregnant, Kylie doing her lips … the list goes on – whether you watch the show or not. But even if you are living under a rock and not interested in ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘, you’ve probably heard about Bruce Jenner’s (now Caitlyn) groundbreaking interview with Diane Sawyer, where she officially declares that she is transitioning into becoming a female, and has always deep down been a woman. And not to forget her ‘coming out’ photograph on the recent Vanity Fair cover – after 65 years she is done hiding.

One of the most important quotes from the interview is where she makes clear that she alone, owns her identity: “I’m saying goodbye to people’s perception of me and who I am. I am not saying goodbye to me, because this is who I am.”

By Jenner’s brave interview, she is hoping to help the transgender community and people who are afraid to out themselves. Other famous transgender beauties have already paved the way, redefining society’s ideas about beauty and gender. They are teaching us that expressing yourself through the way you look can be exciting, liberating, profound and fun. After all beauty is power.

Here are some of our favourite quotes from empowering and awesome transgender individuals about beauty and beyond.
