Caitlyn Jenner Receives ESPY Award for Courage

Caitlyn Jenner stood on a stage before some of the country's biggest sports stars and celebrities Wednesday and issued a challenge to accept transgender people for who they are.
"Trans people deserve something vital: They deserve your respect," Jenner said at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles Wednesday as she accepted the the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
One of the most celebrated Olympians of all time, the former Bruce Jenner told the athletes in the crowd that how they behave on transgender issues matters for thousands of young people struggling with the issue.
It was her most high profile appearance since announcing her physical transition to a woman last month.
