Bruce Jenner’s Transgender Transformation: What’s His Next Step to Becoming “Her”?
Two-weeks ago 65-year-old Bruce Jenner finally revealed to the world what we have all been waiting to hear: he is in fact making the transition to a woman. While it’s all rather new to the world, it isn’t new to Bruce Jenner at all. He’s been dealing with these feelings his entire life, and even started and then stopped the process of becoming a woman many years ago.
In a rather candid interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce let it all out of the bag. He even discussed the irony in his family’s reality television show (Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s) that put the former Olympian back in the spotlight. While the world has watched one dramatic scene after another unfold on the show, the real story all along has been Bruce’s inner struggle with wanting to be a woman. While his life was incredibly publicized, he kept that one secret guarded, not only from the millions of viewers but also largely from his own family.
The desire to be “her” weighed heavy on Bruce, and at last he has come clean with his true feelings and identity. Bruce couldn’t handle the thought of getting cancer or suddenly dying and never coming clean with his secret. After all, he’s not the only person out there dealing with an identity crisis. He knew that his journey would inspire others to be their true self, and so he finally made the decision to tell the world how he really feels.
As of now, Bruce refers to the woman he plans to become as ‘her.’ Bruce Jenner revealed many things during the special interview with Sawyer, but what he didn’t reveal is what he will look like as ‘her.’ It shouldn’t be too long before the world knows.
Judging by all of the well-dressed, good-looking females in his family, Bruce is going to look amazing, and he wants the world to witness his transformation. This is why he has decided to allow camera crews to follow him around as he goes through with a sex change.

E! announced they will air The Bruce Jenner TV show, which will follow Bruce as he goes through the biggest transformation of his life and begins living as a woman. The show is scheduled to premier in the UK this summer, and features 8 hour-long episodes. Bruce Jenner is the executive producer of the show, which is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, a highly qualified company responsible for producing many LGBT stories over the last 20 years.
Bruce also plans to spread his message through public speaking engagements. Back in the 70’s Bruce earned $5,000 for speaking at events, and chances are he could earn a lot more today. According to one source, “It was very lucrative for him in the past and now he has a whole new audience. Bruce will be in greater demand than anybody. He could make tens of thousands per engagement.”
He’s not doing it for money though. Unlike previous bombshells the Kardashian’s have dropped to get attention, Bruce sees this one as distinctly different. He told Diane Sawyer, “What I’m doing is going to do some good. And we’re going to change the world. I really firmly believe that. We’re going to make a difference in the world with what we’re doing.”
Kim Kardashian explained that until her stepfather’s gender transformation is complete he should be referred to as “him” and “he.” No matter what he needs or wants, the whole Kardashian clan is there for him.
Kris Jenner has an emotional moment as she comes to terms with her ex-husband’s decision to live as a woman. Despite any difficulties, the whole family supports him 100%.
It hasn’t been easy for anyone, it’s a lot to handle and adjust to but at the end of the day, Bruce is still Bruce, a kind and loving father that’s always been there for his family. Stepdaughter Kim Kardashian says, “As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life, however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy. And I support him 100 percent.”
So now that his well-guarded secret desires to become a woman have been revealed, what is Bruce’s next steps in becoming a woman? He has already had a surgical procedure (a tracheal shave) that wittled down his adam’s apple and his grooming habits, which include growing his hair long, regular manicures and makeup, have become much less of a secret mystery, now that he has revealed that he is indeed transforming into a woman. Earlier this year, Bruce also began taking estrogen hormones in an effort to make his breasts grow. Other than that, Bruce hasn’t revealed how far he plans on going with his transgender transformation. Will he go the whole 9 yards and opt for breast implants and gender reassignment surgery? Only time will tell!
