Congrats to Caitlyn Jenner on legally being declared a woman!

A judge has approved Jenner’s request to legally be declared a woman.

The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Jenner, 65, filed the petition so that her name and gender would “better match my identity.” However, other details were kept private to protect the former Olympian, according to the AP.

“Although public support for my transition has been overwhelmingly supportive, I am also receiving unwelcome negative attention from private citizens, including threats of bodily harm,” Jenner wrote in a sworn declaration obtained by the AP.

Some details that accompanied her petition to legally change her name and gender were redacted after Jenner cited privacy concerns and threats she says she has received during her transition.

“Although public support for my transition has been overwhelmingly supportive, I am also receiving unwelcome negative attention from private citizens, including threats of bodily harm,” Jenner wrote in a sworn declaration.

Caitlyn requested her name be changed from William Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Marie Jenner.
