How Living With and Loving Bruce Jenner Changed My Life Forever

04/24/2015 10:59 pm EDT

By now, Bruce Jenner has revealed his struggle with gender dysphoria.

I never would have dared to speak on this issue before he was comfortable enough to do so first. It is, after all, his truth, so I knew he should be afforded the dignity to reveal that truth on his own time and in the way he sees fit.

I have respectfully kept his secrets private and would have taken his confidences to my grave had he not spoken out.

But now, many years into his remarkable life, he has spoken out. His legacy will likely be sprinkled with references like "Olympian," "decathlon gold medalist," "world's greatest athlete," "son," "brother," "husband," "father," "grandfather," "friend," and, hopefully, "pioneer" and "trailblazer for the civil rights of the transgender community."

Bruce Jenner's first wife, Chrystie Crownover, says that her husband first told her wanted to be a woman in 1972.

"I can't remember the exact words because it was such a shock, but he opened up and confessed, said Crownover, who is now Chrystie Scott, in an interview with Good Morning America on Monday. "Understandably, I was speechless. I was really pleased that he shared that intimacy with me, that he trusted me with his deepest, darkest secret."

She went on to say that she grappled with the news at first.

Louganis contemplates his, fellow Olympian Jenner's journeys

Jul 31, 12:43 AM (ET)

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Greg Louganis said he was unaware of fellow Olympian Bruce Jenner's gender identity struggle when their paths crossed at the Summer 1976 Games and in later years.

The diving great, among the first prominent athletes to come out as gay, said Thursday he has yet to speak with the now-Caitlyn Jenner but can appreciate what she's going through.

"We all have our journeys. Whether you're gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, we all have our own journeys," Louganis, 55, told reporters during a Q&A session on the HBO documentary "Greg Louganis: Back on Board," debuting Tuesday.
