    When Cait took the stage at the ESPYs to receive the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage, she was the definition of grace. She spoke about acceptance and respect and love and her responsibility as a famous woman who is transgender to make positive changes. It was powerful and I believe changed a lot of people's minds, making them hopeful and more full of love.
