As transgender characters, themes, and issues remain at the forefront of a Hollywood obsession, there is another program coming to computer screens near you.
Variety reports Trans model Geena Rocero has partnered with LGBT-themed cabler Logo for a new web series that casts a spotlight on transgender youth, called Beautiful as I Want to Be.
“I am excited to share with trans youth the ways that I’ve used modeling and art to creatively express myself and to realize my dreams,” Rocero said. “This project is to affirm our youth’s potential, their beauty and the possibilities when we celebrate and allow them to be their most authentic selves.”
Each episode consists of four-parts, and focuses on young trans individuals as they share their backstories and future career goals.
Rocero will also partner trans youth individuals with successful trans leaders to form a mentor/coach business-type relationship, per Variety, while also preparing them for a transformative photo shoot.
