Caitlyn Jenner got a standing ovation when he accepted his Arthur Ashe Courage Award during the ESPYs Wednesday night, and in his acceptance speech Jenner addressed the Pentagon’s move to allow transgender people to serve openly in the military.
“Trans pepole deserve something vital,” Jenner told the crowd of athletes and celebrities. “They deserve your respect.”
“Trans people will soon be serving in the military. That’s a great idea.”
“We have come a long way, but we have a lot to do.”
