Caitlyn Jenner has filed paperwork to make her name and gender transition official

Caitlyn Jenner is making her name and gender transition official.

The Olympic gold medalist who was born as Bruce Jenner filed a name and gender change petition on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The filing says the 65-year-old Caitlyn is seeking the change to better match her identity.

It was released Wednesday so a judge could consider Caitlyn’s request to file portions of the application under seal.

Some details in the released petition were redacted after Caitlyn’s attorneys tried to keep certain personal details private, citing concerns about threats made against her.
