Bruce Jenner is, once again, “trending” on social media, this time because People magazine is reporting that a source close to Jenner has confirmed that the former olympian and reality show star is, indeed, transgender and transitioning into a woman:

People has confirmed that Bruce Jenner has been quietly making a very personal change. The former Olympian will soon be living life as female. ‘Bruce is transitioning to a woman,’ says a source close to the family. ‘He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.'”

The report also confirms that Jenner is filming a documentary about his transition (something we reported on earlier in the week) that will air “when he is ready to be open about his transition.”

The speculations on Jenner reached a fever pitch when InTouch magazine released a terribly photoshopped image of Jenner dressed in woman’s clothes and donning makeup. I wrote a pretty scathing commentary about the magazine’s cover, and suggested that we ought to wait until Jenner wants to discuss a transition publicly. Despite all of the recent reports and publicity, it is important to note that Jenner has still not made any official announcement about the reported transition.
