WOW! We were greeted with Caitlyn Jenner
on Vanity Fair’s cover and did she look incredible! The glamorous grandmother gained a million Twitter followers in a few hours, as well as bringing transgender issues into sharp focus and creating a worldwide debate and discussion with that one cover. Caitlyn said about the cover shoot, “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. 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.” We take a look back at her earlier life and how Kourtney and Scott are introducing Granny Caitlyn to their children.
We also feature other transgender celebs (see page 20)
, one being Laverne Cox
of Orange Is The New Black
fame, a close friend of Caitlyn, who supported her through her transition and who reminded the world when Caitlyn hit the headlines, that, “In terms of the day-to-day lives of trans people, we still experience violence at a disproportionate rate, as well as homelessness, unemployment, the denial of health care, and being criminalised and incarcerated,” in an
interview with Stella magazine.
From heroic grandmothers, though, we move to the moms of Tinseltown, and have a look at the greats and not-so-greats. Who made the grade, and who flunked big time? Turn to pages 8 and 9 to find out!
We also look into the world of food labelling and how accurate (or inaccurate) it is. Many of us don’t realise what a big health concern it is, and just how much manufacturers rely on our blind faith. Turn to pages 42 and 43 to read all about it!
Until next week...
