In her inspiring acceptance speech at the ESPYS, Caitlyn Jenner discusses transgender rights. The Olympic gold medalist received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPN Awards. The speaker explains how the spotlight that comes with being an athlete can be used to shed light on important issues.

For her, this means re-shaping the landscape of how trans issues are seen and how transgender people are treated, plus encouraging people to accept others for who they are. The inspiring acceptance speech suggests beginning with education and learning as much as you can about other people. Jenner states "Trans people deserve something vital. They Deserve your respect." This will in turn create a more compassionate community, a more empathetic society and ultimately, a better world. She also notes that while it may be difficult, it is possible to get past things we don't understand -- if we do it together.
