Bruce Jenner Inspires New Viral Beauty Manicure Challenge
Just a few short days after the highly controversial #KylieJennerChallenge, another Jenner is in the spotlight on social media – and for a very inspirational reason. Last Friday, Bruce Jenner announced to the world that he is transitioning into a woman*. During his moving interview, he confessed that one of his dreams was to wear nail polish long enough to chip off.
To show support for the Olympian during this time of change, Australian radio station KIIS 1065 started the viral challenge #PaintYourNailsForBruce. While many women are participating, the focus is on getting men to lend their mitts to a good cause. To get the movement started, KIIS 1065 offered free, vibrant manicures to any man willing to come down to the station. Since then, the hashtag has grown considerably, with men around the world sharing snaps of their manly manicures on Instagram. This strong support for Bruce is truly inspiring, and we hope it motivates more members of the transgender community to be themselves. Read on to get a closer look, then share your nail selfie with the hashtag #PaintYourNailsForBruce!
*For the purposes of Bruce's interview with Diane Sawyer, he requested that male pronouns be used and hasn't yet confirmed a new preference for female pronouns.
