Caitlyn Jenner Accepts Arthur Ashe Courage Award At ESPYs (Video)

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

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.
