Caitlyn Jenner files to legally change her name and gender

Los Angeles - Caitlyn Jenner has filed paperwork to make her name and gender transition official, but she has requested privacy accommodations citing threats she has received.

The Olympic gold medalist who was born as Bruce Jenner filed a name and gender-change petition on Tuesday in Los Angeles. She is seeking a private hearing to officially change her name to Caitlyn Marie Jenner and gender to female.

Jenner, 65, is seeking the change "to better match my identity," the filing states.

It was released on Wednesday so a judge could consider Jenner's request to file portions of the application under seal.

Some details in the released petition were redacted after Jenner's attorneys sought to keep certain personal details private, citing concerns about threats made against her.

"Although public support for my transition has been overwhelmingly supportive, I am also receiving unwelcome negative attention from private citizens, including threats of bodily harm," Jenner wrote in a sworn declaration.

She signed the document using her birth name, William Bruce Jenner, last week.
