Caitlyn Jenner To Receive Arthur Ashe Courage Award
As many people know, Caitlyn Jenner was many things while she was Bruce Jenner. Sure, she was a popular reality show father, but most people remember Bruce as being a world-class athlete and Olympian.
It has now been announced that Caitlyn Jenner will be honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, named after the tennis great who died of AIDs. Ashe’s daughter Camera is one hundred percent behind the award being given to Jenner, saying that she is “the epitome of courage” and that there is no one who deserves the honor this year more.
Camera was not the only person who showed support for Jenner, so did another tennis legend and one of Arthur Ashe’s great friends Billie Jean King.
It has been known for some time that Jenner was transitioning into a female, but the world got their first real glance of Caitlyn on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine this week.
