Whoopi Goldberg’s new trans modelling show looks all kinds of fierce – WATCH

By Will Stroude

Whoopi Goldberg’s new docu-series Strut has just released its first trailer.

The show focuses on Slay Model Management, the world’s first modelling agency for trans models, and the lookers on the books who are trying to make it big in the fashion world.

Speaking about the show, which features former Attitude cover star Laith Ashley, Goldberg said: “Our models come from all walks of life; all different backgrounds and ethnicities.

“They are struggling with things we can all relate to — trying to make ends meet, fighting to make a name for themselves and navigating the minefields of personal relationships.

“All of these struggles are amplified by the fact that they are also fighting to break down barriers and taking on the responsibility of representing the transgender community in today’s society.

“It’s time to separate caricature from real people, and that’s what we are doing with Strut.”

Strut kicks off on September 20, on US cable channel Oxygen. Watch the trailer below:
