The 2015 Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly (ESPY) Awards held yesterday.
The ESPYs, presented by ESPN, recognizes individual and team athletic achievement and other sports-related performance.
So it was kind of a highlight when transgender woman Caitlyn Jenner was given the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
Caitlyn, who gave a 10-minute speech amidst a rapturous ovation, vowed “to do whatever I can to reshape the landscape of how transgender people are viewed and treated.”
“I never wanted to hurt anyone else, most of all my family and my kids,” Jenner said, wiping her eye.
“Trans people deserve something vital; they deserve your respect,” she said. “From that respect comes a more compassionate community.”
Other winners on the night include Steph Curry, who won Best Male Athlete and Best NBA Player, and Odell Beckham Jr., who won the award for Best Play.
