I’m thrilled that Caitlyn Jenner is on the cover of Vanity Fair’s July 2015 issue and that she looks astoundingly beautiful. Her increasingly brave choices are poised to do more good for the transgender movement than anyone elses in human history. Her platform and message almost make 10 years of Kim Kardashian coverage actually worthwhile.
But I am concerned about putting it in the hands of VF, with vanity being the literal and meta name of their game. Historically, I am not usually a fan of even their other highend covers since, with their level of access and recognition, they often seem to be the last one to see a trend, covering it only just before the lights go out on it for good.
