Caitlyn Jenner's ESPYs Acceptance Speech: "We're All Different"

Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at ESPN’s ESPY Awards in Los Angeles Wednesday.

Before Jenner received the award, ESPN played a tribute video about her life as an athlete and the struggle and confusion she faced regarding her gender.

In a 10-minute, emotional acceptance speech, Caitlyn urged acceptance of the transgender community from others and "accepting people for who they are."

"Trans people deserve something vital; they deserve your respect. From that respect comes a more compassionate community," Caitlin said in her speech. "It is an honor to have the word courage associated with my life."
