In a much anticipated tell-all autobiography entitled The Secrets of My Life, Caitlyn Jenner, 67, will delve into a range of topics, most notably the reasons behind why she opted for gender reassignment surgery almost two years after making the life changing decision.

Jenner, formally 1975 Pan-Am and 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medalist Bruce Jenner, stated in a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April, 2015, that she had dealt with gender-dysphoria since her youth and came out as a trans woman, claiming “for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.” She had cross-dressed for many years and even took hormone replacement therapy, stopping only at the commencement of her romance with Kris Jenner in the early 1990s.

Jenner never knew how to speak about her confusion, which contributed to the break down of her 23-year marriage in 2015, but she finally felt free. During her 20/20 interview, Caitlyn went on to say “My brain is much more female than it is male. That’s what my soul is. Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie. I can’t do it anymore.” Jenner had had a series of surgeries in 2014 before the interview, including facial surgery, during which her brow was lifted and her jawbone shaved, as well as breast augmentation and a tracheal shave.

At the beginning of 2017, Caitlyn decided to transition completely to female, undergoing a procedure that would remove her male genitals and leave her a functional female equivalent. But why? “I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time,” Jenner states in The Secrets of My Life, which earned her a $4 million advance and was written with the help of Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger.

“So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods,” Jenner continues. “You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
Jenner’s memoir, The Secrets of My Life, hits bookshelves on April 25.
