Caitlyn Jenner confirmed reports that she recently underwent gender confirmation surgery.
Her revelation comes in a new interview with Diana Sawyer ahead of the release of Caitlyn’s memoir — which briefly mentions her procedure.
“I do mention in the book everything I did,” Jenner told Sawyer. “But I wasn’t less of a woman the day before I had the surgery than I was the day after I had the surgery, because that did not define who I am as a human being.”
Jenner said that while she chose to write about her own decision in the book, she emphasized that it is personal and private.
“That doesn’t mean in the future that I have to talk about it, that I’m going to dwell. The media may but I’m not going to dwell on that subject,” she said. “And I would make a suggestion to all people out there — don’t ask the question. It’s not an appropriate question to ask any transperson.”
