Ed note: In his interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce Jenner said he identifies as a woman and wants to continue using male pronouns. It's our policy to call everyone by the pronouns they prefer, and so until Jenner tells us differently, we'll use "he" and "his" in our coverage.

scoring the cover of a national magazine is nothing new — the Olympic athlete has his own Wheaties box for goodness' sake. According to People, however, Bruce will star in a Vanity Fair pictorial as a woman, with the issue hitting newsstands this summer.

This is extra-special for many reasons, the biggest being that its the first photoshoot and interview since Bruce's emotional confession in April. After hiding gender identity for years, Bruce told Diane Sawyer, "For all intents and purposes, I am a woman."

Reportedly to be shot by Annie Leibovitz, the article will include photos of Bruce as "Her," the name he's given his female identity. Although Bruce is transitioning sooner than some of his children expected, the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan seems to be behind his significant choice.

Amid widespread support from fans and the transgender community, Bruce will appear in an eight-part docuseries on E!, premiering July 26 at 9 p.m.
