Caitlyn Jenner Revisits Glory Days Posing on Athens Rostrum (video)



 

Caitlyn Jenner, the most famous openly transgender person in the world, spent a 24-hour spring break in Athens where she visited the Acropolis and the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic games were held in 1896.

Together with partner Sophia Hutchins, they toured the Parthenon and posed for videos and photos in the stadium.

The 69-year-old relived past glory days as she posed on a rostrum at the site of the first modern Olympics. “Haven’t been on one of these in a while,” the reality star wrote. “Behind me is the home of the modern Olympic Games in 1896. Absolutely amazing!”

The American television personality and retired Olympic gold medal–winning decathlete was born William Bruce Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner publicly came out as a trans woman in April of 2015, saying that she had dealt with gender dysphoria since her youth and that, “for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.”

Jenner publicly announced her new name in July of that year, with her name and gender being legally changed the following September.

Jenner has undergone cosmetic surgery, and completed sex reassignment surgery in January of 2017.

She said she has never been sexually attracted to men, but always to women, and that, keeping in mind the difficulty people have understanding the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity, she will identify as asexual for now.
