The Vanity Fair cover featuring Caitlyn Jenner certainly got some attention this week. The former Olympic decathlon champion completed her public transition by appearing in a gorgeous photo, shot by Annie Liebovitz. The reaction from the media and the public was quite positive. 

Yet there were some hiccups along the way. Awareness of trans issues lags behind the understanding of sexual orientation in America - some people were simply uneducated about how to discuss Jenner's transition, while others were outright cruel. 

Nick Adams from GLAAD joins us to talk about the reaction by the media to Jenner's story, some of the key pitfalls he wants to see the media avoid, and any mistakes Outsports has made along the way in attempts to cover the story with respect.
