Last night, Caitlyn Jenner delivered an emotional speech upon accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS.

"The real truth is that just before a few months ago, I had never met anybody else who was trans like me," she said. "It's been eye-opening, inspiring, but also frightening. All across the country, all across the world, there are young people coming to terms with being transgender."

Many reacted favorably to her address on social media. Here are some powerful reactions to her speech.
