Caitlyn Jenner is the most famous transgender person in the world, at least according to Time magazine.

The 66-year-old made the publication’s “Person of the Year” short list because when he decided to transition into a woman it was “the most visible high point of a banner year for the transgender community.”

“For the first time in my life, in many, many, many, many years, I actually wake up in the morning excited about the day,” Jenner said during his interview.

“Because of my position in life, maybe I can make a bigger and faster change of thinking in the world than someone who doesn’t have a platform, so why not use it?” (VIDEO: Caitlyn Jenner Gives 18-Year-Old Daughter Most Inappropriate Gift Ever)
