Bruce Jenner to Appear as Female Self on Vanity Fair Cover

Saturday, 30 May 2015 12:11 PM

Former Olympian Bruce Jenner will appear on the cover of Vanity Fair and in a photo spread inside as a woman, with photographs being shot by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, according to reports.

The cover will mark Jenner's first print appearance and interview since he revealed in April to ABC "20/20" correspondent Diane Sawyer that he plans to live as a female, People Magazine and Us Weekly report, citing multiple unnamed sources

Leibovitz, over the years, has become well known for her photographs of famous people such as Johnny Depp, Michael Jackson, Queen Elizabeth, Lady Gaga, and many others. Her photographs often are on Vanity Fair's magazine covers, including a nude shot of actress Demi Moore while she was pregnant.

An industry source told People that the Jenner issue will hit newsstands this summer. Another member of his reality show family, stepdaughter Kim Kardashian, has also appeared on the Vanity Fair cover.

Jenner, who refers to his female self as "Her" told another stepdaughter, Khloe, during a recent "Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce" special, that his transition would occur "probably in the spring."

Jenner's plans have met with widespread support from his fans and friends, and even from an unexpected source, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who said in early May that if Jenner "says he's a woman, then he's a woman," and that he does not believe in criticizing people about who they are.

"My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody, not to criticize people for who they are," Santorum said. "As far as for who they are, you have to respect everybody, and these are obviously complex issues for businesses, for society, and I think we have to look at it in a way that is compassionate and respectful of everybody.”

He later commented that his statements were made to affirm Jenner "as a person, made by God in His likeness as we all are. It was meant to express empathy, not a change in public policy."

The Vanity Fair article and photo spread are expected to come out at about the same time as Jenner's eight-part docu-series on the E! Network, which will premiere on July 26.
