Caitlyn Jenner has achieved a personal milestone.
She's accomplished something the reality star never thought she would accomplish.
She's walked down the beach in a bathing suit.
Not just any bathing suit, of course.
Or not a men's bathing suit, we should emphasize for accuracy.
Instead, the transgender icon has shared a picture on Instagram of herself walking down the beach in Cabo San Lucas, wearing only woman's swimwear.
“40 years ago my therapist asked me what my fantasy is,” Jenner wrote as the caption, adding as a tease and an answer:
“I told her walking on the beach being my authentic self and…”
And here she is:
It's been quite a journey for Jenner to reach this point in her life, of course.
She struggled for decades as a man, remaining deep in the closet and hiding her true self from the public.
But that finally changed in April of 2015 when Jenner sat down with Diane Sawyer and opened up about how she felt like she was meant to be a female.
This explains the Instagram video Caitlyn posted in which she's rocking the aforementioned plunging one-piece swimsuit and a wide-brimmed hat.
As she gets closer to the camera, she takes off her hat and proudly declares “Free!” as she twirls around while the waves crash ashore.
It's pretty great.
In January of this year, Jenner underwent gender reassignment surgery.
“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” Caitlyn writes in the memoir, referred to the decision to undergo the surgery as “complex.”
She adds in the book, which basically ruined her relationship with many members of her family, that she had grown tired of answering questions about when she would have this procedure done.
“I am telling you because I believe in candor,” she says.
“So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
In a subsequent interview with Larry King, however, Jenner made it clear that not all transgender individuals undergo this surgery.
And that's okay.
"What’s between your legs doesn’t define who you are," she said.
