The Beautiful Reason Men Around The World Are Painting Their Nails


Last Friday, former Olympic medalist and father on the reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" revealed a lifelong secret to Diane Sawyer on "20/20": He* identifies as a woman.

The transgender community faces unbelievable challenges and friends and strangers alike have applauded Jenner for putting his secret out there for not just the world to see, but to learn from.

But today, Australian radio station KIIS1065 took that support even further. 

The station began the hashtag #PaintYourNailsForBruce to show solidarity.

They began to paint nails at their headquarters.

But soon, lots of people were jumping in on the action.

Women and men alike.

Boyfriends, even.

They shared their fresh manis on Twitter.

And Instagram.

All of these messages help to spread acceptance and awareness, something that Jenner hoped to do by going public with his decision to transition to a woman, his true identity, in the first place.

"Have an open mind and an open heart," Bruce asked of viewers. "I'm just doing what I have to do."

*A Plus will use male pronouns as Jenner did in his "20/20" interview until he says otherwise as suggested by GLAAD.
