Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award tonight at the ESPYs (video below).
Before Jenner received her award, there was a video presentation about her life and gender transition, reports Mediaite.com.
Jenner then walked on stage in a white dress and told the audience:
Thank you so much. It is so wonderful to be here tonight. Now, the last few months have been a whirlwind of so many different experiences and emotions. But to tell you the truth, it seems like every time I turn around in life, I’m putting myself in these high-pressure situations, competing in the Games, raising a family.

But I’ve never felt more pressured than I ever have felt in my life, than the last couple of months. Picking out this outfit, O.K., girls, I get it. You’ve gotta get the shoes, the hair the make-up, the whole process is was exhausting. And next, the fashion police, oh, please be kind on me, I’m new at this, but anyway.
Jenner also spoke about her struggles as a transgender person, and the struggles that young transgender people around the world are facing, including bullying, being assaulted and suicides, notes TV Guide.
