Trans community responds to Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover photo with own versions via #MyVanityFairCover

Transgender people from around the world have responded to US TV personality Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover, with their own versions on Twitter.

Jenner, whose image was published on the cover of Vanity Fair’s latest issue under the strapline: ‘Call me Caitlyn’ – ahead of her new TV show called 'I am Cait', was lauded across social media earlier this week.

However, some in the transgender community felt media attention to her cover page photo was too heavily slanted towards how "traditionally beautiful" she looked, rather than focusing on her courage in posing for it.

In response some in the trans community posted their own versions across social media to show that admiration and praise for trans women should not just come for those who "fit a narrow definition of beauty", as Tumblr user Crystal Fraiser wrote.

See below for a couple of examples of the covers share on social media and shareed using the hashtag #MyVanityFairCover.
