Bruce JennerCall her Caitlyn!

Formerly Bruce Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner covers the July 2015 issue of Vanity Fair magazine photographed by Annie Leibovitz. This marks Caitlyn’s first ever photo as a transgender and speaking on the cover she says “I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live.”

Call Me Caitlyn” the Vanity Fair coverline declares in front of a photo revealing Jenner’s post-Bruce look, introducing the world to Caitlyn Jenner for the first time.

The Vanity Fair story explains that Jenner underwent a 10-hour facial-feminization surgery in Beverly Hills on March 15.

It says the gold medal winner had a panic attack during recovery.

“You wonder if you are making all the right decisions,” Jenner told Bissinger.

But the “uncomfortableness” of being a woman living as a man never went away, Jenner said.

“I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live,” Jenner said.

“If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life,'” Jenner said in the only quote released so far from the accompanying July cover story.

Previously, Jenner shared that it was Kanye West who helped Kim Kardashian become the “most supportive” of her stepdad’s transition. Since then, all of the extended family has made supportive remarks over social media, and Jenner’s ongoing transition has also been documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Jenner will have her own docu-series premiering on E! July 26. On last night’sKUWTK mid-season finale, Kim revealed she and Kanye are expecting their second child.

Vanity Fair’s 22-page cover story features stunning Annie Leibovitz photos of Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, along with revealing new details. Here’s a preview of the story.

NEW YORK, N.Y.—Speaking publicly for the first time since completing gender transition, Caitlyn Jenner compares her emotional two-day photo shoot with Annie Leibovitz for the July cover of Vanity Fair to winning the gold medal for the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics. She tells Pulitzer Prize–winning V.F. contributing editor and author ofFriday Night Lights Buzz Bissinger, “That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘that a boy, Bruce,’ pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.”

Jenner tells Bissinger about how she suffered a panic attack the day after undergoing 10-hour facial-feminization surgery on March 15—a procedure she believed would take 5 hours. (Bissinger reveals that Jenner has not had genital surgery.) She recalls thinking, “What did I just do? What did I just do to myself?” A counselor from the Los Angeles Gender Center came to the house so Jenner could talk to a professional, and assured her that such reactions were often induced by pain medication, and that second-guessing was human and temporary.

Jenner tells Bissinger the thought has since passed and not come back: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life. You never dealt with yourself,’ and I don’t want that to happen.”

Bissinger spent hundreds of hours with the man the world knew as Bruce Jenner over a period of three months, and then countless hours with Caitlyn, also attending the photo shoot with Leibovitz at Jenner’s Malibu home.

Bissinger apologizes to Jenner for repeated pronoun confusion and asks whether she is sensitive about it. “I don’t really get hung up,” she tells him. “A guy came in the other day and I was fully dressed—it’s just habit, I said, ‘Hi, Bruce here,’ and I went, Oh fuck, it ain’t Bruce, I was screwing up doing it.”

Bissinger speaks extensively with Jenner’s four children from his first two marriages—Burt, 36, and Cassandra, 34, with first wife Chrystie, and Brandon, 33, and Brody, 31, with second wife Linda—and describes an insensitive father who had been absent for years at a time. Jenner openly acknowledges mistakes made with them as Bruce, and expresses genuine regret. Says Burt, “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”
