The Kardashians roll deep, and the 2015 ESPY Awards ceremony honoring Caitlyn Jenner was no exception.

The reality TV family got glammed up and gathered together at the ESPYs in Los Angeles to support Caitlyn, who debuted as her true self in June after revealing to the world that she had been transgender her whole life.

Caitlyn was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for the bravery she has shown going through her transition in the public eye and creating a dialogue for trans people around the world.

Wednesday’s show was Caitlyn’s first major public appearance, and almost her entire family turned up at the ESPYs to celebrate her award (ex-wife Kris Jenner and stepson Rob Kardashian were absent, as was son Brandon Jenner‘s wife Leah, who is imminently expecting the couple’s first child).

Kids Burt, Brandon, Brody, Kendall and Kylie, along with stepdaughters Kourtney, Kim and Khloé Kardashian all turned out, according to an Instagram post by Kylie, 17, and many members of the famous family were quick to share their "fam support" on social media.

“There’s no question that this is a monumental and historic moment,” ESPYs host Joel McHale, 43, told PEOPLE of Jenner. “I mean, she’s the first. To [transition from male to female] is courageous and difficult. I can’t imagine that it was an easy decision or process.”

But for a tearful Caitlyn, 65, the “tough part” was showing sufficient appreciation for her family: “I never wanted to hurt anyone else, most of all, my family and my kids,” she said in a moving and powerful acceptance speech. “I always wanted my children to be so proud of their dad for what he was able to accomplish in his life. You guys have given so much back to me, given so much support. I am so grateful to have all of you in my life. Thank you.”
