Dear Bruce Jenner: Your words will have an incredible effect on so many... Not just people struggling with our culture's restrictive and binary concept of gender, but anyone experiencing shame around what they perceive as their "otherness." The bravery it takes to face an often unforgiving public and speak openly about your identity is stunning and to be celebrated. I hope we can all show you our best selves and meet your honesty with love and compassion. You are beautiful in whatever form you choose to inhabit. Congratulations. Love, Lena
