As Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, made her triumphant debut on Monday, Twitter lit up in celebration. Within minutes, her new identity -- showcased in a stunning photo on the July cover of Vanity Fair -- became the top trending topic, with a flood of tweets that rival any Internet-breaking the Kardashian clan has managed in the past.
Celebrities chimed in on Twitter and Instagram to champion Caitlyn's arrival.
I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me.

I just want Caitlyn Jenner to take me out and teach me how to drive a stick shift in heels.

Let us remember that Caitlyn and other trans folks' value shouldn't be valued solely based on how much they look "convincingly cisgender"
