What a way to make your public debut!

Caitlyn Jenner wowed the crowd in a stunning cream Versace gown as she took the stage to accept the Arthur Ashe Courage award at the ESPYs on Wednesday night, and her speech brought the majority of the room to tears!

The transgender Olympian discussed the struggles the trans community endures, then took the opportunity to thank her ABC interviewer Diane Sawyer, as well as all of her children and her mother Esther. Kendall and Kylie were wiping away tears as they watched their dad make history, and Brody, Burt, Brandon, Cassandra, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe all looked on with pride.

"Here comes the tough part. I'd like to thank my family. I never wanted to hurt anyone else, most of all, my family and my kids. 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," she said while fighting back tears. The entire Kardashian-Jenner clan showed up to support -- EXCEPT Kris ... oh and Rob, but he doesn't really count anyway ...

She then displayed her bravery while taking a stand for those in the transgender community that are still fighting to accept themselves.

"All across this country, at this very moment there are young people coming to terms with being trans. They are getting bullied. They are getting beat up. They are getting murdered and they are committing suicide. ... If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead. The truth is I can take it. But for the kids out there coming to terms with being true with who they are, they shouldn't have to take it," she explained.

We couldn't be happier she's finally living her authentic life, and looking fab doing it!
