The Oxygen Channel debuted a new modeling reality show in September. Strut is executive produced by Whoopi Goldberg and features Slay Model Management, the first modeling agency to cater exclusively to the transgender community.
“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,” said Executive Producer Goldberg. “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 provides an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into five determined models lives. These models will struggle with career goals and their personal / family lives. “As they strive to overcome hurdles in the quest to discovering their true identity, the models are faced with owning who they are—no matter the cost.” These models are working “to break down barriers in the modeling industry and the world around them.”
