Barack Obama to Caitlyn Jenner: Well Done!

by at .

Ever since Caitlyn Jenner revealed herself on the cover of Vanity Fair this afternoon, we've expected an outpouring of support from her loved ones.

And, to their credit, Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and company have all weighed in with the utmost respect and admiration for the woman they are sort of just meeting for the first time.

But an unexpected celebrity has now also made his voice heard on Jenner and the significant step she has taken:

President Barack Obama.

Having only recently joined Twitter, the President used that platform this evening to send a very positive message Caitlyn's way, writing:

"It takes courage to share your story. Your story matters in the fight for LGBT rights."

Having the Commander-in-Chief actually acknowledge a gender transformation in such a way in a major step for the LGBT community.

Caitlyn Jenner, meanwhile, is already on Twitter herself. She has well over one million followers already and she opened her account with the following words:

I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me.
