Fans, family members and celebrities took to Twitter on Friday to voice their support for Bruce Jenner for sharing his life-changing decision to transition from male to female in a revealing interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer on Friday.

“I’ve been thinking about this day forever,” the 65-year-old said during his candid talk with the 20/20 host.

“Now that is bravery,” the “Born This Way” singer posted Friday evening.
