Discovering Who Caitlyn Jenner Is

When I first heard the rumors throughout the media that Olympian star and athletic hero Bruce Jenner was beginning his transition to becoming a woman, I admit it was hard for me to believe. I just didn’t see it coming. Sure, in photos we clearly could see that he had what appeared to be some touchups or face work as Bruce and let his hair grow out. Everyone I’ve ever known to transition took a longer road than what seemed to be ahead of who we now know as Caitlyn.

THIS IS DELORES T. VAN CARTIER

I first met Delores T. Van Cartier in January of 2011 as I was in Tampa judging Bob Taylor’s Miss Gay Florida USofA at the Honey Pot.
