Oscar winning-actress and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg is teaming up with Oxygen for a groundbreaking unscripted series about transgender models titled “Strut.”

WHOOPI-GOLDBERG-NET-WORTH2According to S&A, Goldberg will host and executive produce the series that will follow a set of transgender models who are determined to make themselves household names. The models will receive assistance from Slay Model Management, the world’s first 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,” said Whoopi Goldberg. “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 realize!”

“Strut” will air later on this year.
