Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, who came out as a transgender woman earlier this year, has written a post on her new website telling her fans how much their comments mean to her.

"Even though I can't get back to each and every one of you, I want you to know that I'm reading your kind words and that they mean the world to me," she wrote on Monday (July 13) on her website entitled "The future looks bright".

The 65-year-old former star of reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, added that the outpouring of support from her fans was so "incredible" that it sent her site crashing.

She was a 1976 Olympic decathlon men's event champion before she came out as a transgender woman earlier this year. She was previously known as Bruce Jenner.

She said that she finds being a part of the transgender community so "fantastic" and "liberating" that she will "never go back" to being Bruce Jenner.

Asked what her favourite part of becoming Caitlyn was, she said: "Recently I went on a trip with some of my new friends and I had such a wonderful time. I packed for the first time - as just Caitlyn, nobody else - which is the first time I've ever done that."
