Whoopi Goldberg Executive Producing Transgender Modeling Reality Show


Whoopi Goldberg

The Ghost star will executive produce Strut, which will centre on the talent and bosses at Slay Model Management, the first exclusively transgender modeling agency.

"This show is important right now, because for all of the positive advances the community has made and continues to make, transgender is still a hot-button word that gets people hysterical," Whoopi says. "People tend to focus on the stereotype instead of the person, and this series will give viewers a unique opportunity to spend time with real people who are struggling with the same challenges we all face as we make our way through the world.

"You may even be surprised to discover that you have been seeing and interacting with transgender men and women in ways you didn't even realise!"

The Charmed star was 38 when she welcomed her first child, Milo, and admits she's very familiar with the struggles of becoming a mother later in life.
