Be sure you have a tissue handy before watching this clip. The tribute video preceding Caitlyn Jenner taking to the stage was beyond moving.
It began with Bruce’s early years then lead to his Olympic moments before ending with Caitlyn’s introduction and becoming a voice for the transgender community. Jon Hamm narrated the package.
The 65-year-old former Olympian took to the stage to accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award after being introduced by US soccer player Abby Wambach. Caitlyn looked stunning in a form-fitting white Versace wrap dress.
She used the platform to further advocate for transgender rights, thank her family and give shout outs to those who preceded her in this transgender journey including Chaz Bono, Laverne Cox and Janet Mock. Watch below her moving speech at the 2015 ESPYs which begins roughly at the 16:00 mark.
