Diane Sawyer On Jenner : Star to speak about gender transition in first TV interview

Bruce Jenner will sit down with journalist Diane Sawyer to talk about his transition from male to female. The former Olympian has yet to address reports surrounding his decision, but it looks like Bruce is finally ready to speak about this new chapter of his life in a televised interview.

While the discussion will not air until May, Bruce is said to be preparing to film a portion of it later this week, according to Page Six.

He has perhaps chosen to meet with Diane given her connection with the LGBT community.

“Diane has always been very supportive of the LGBT community,” an insider told Us Weekly. The former ABC News anchor has also been honoured by GLAAD – the organisation founded by LGBT people in the media – in the past.

The announcement of Bruce’s interview comes just days after it was revealed that he would be filming a new reality TV show, specifically centred on himself and his transition.

Bruce will also continue to star in the upcoming tenth series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians where he is expected to address his transformation.

The 65-year-old has so far maintained a dignified silence amid media reports, but is said to be “more confident and very happy”. He has the full support of his former wife Kris Jenner, and his children and step-children, Kim Kardashian has previously revealed.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the queen of reality TV said that Bruce would speak “when the time is right”.

“Of course we support Bruce 100 per cent. He’s our dad so we support him no matter what,” said Kim.

“I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way, I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right. I guess I’ll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that’s his journey to talk about, I just think it’s his story to talk about, not really mine.”
