Nominations: GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Reality Program
Reflecting its mission to present a kaleidoscope of human emotions and experiences, Discovery Life Channel profiles a group of women from Kansas City, Mo. -- all friends, some couples -- who are transgender. The five-episode series -- the first of its kind, the network says, to embed with real-life friends within the transgender community -- confronts relationship, femininity, family and friendship matters as the ladies navigate daily struggles and successes. The cast includes on-again/off-again couple AiYana and Jaimie; married pair Macy and Sharon; best friends Kassidy and Chloe, who are experiencing their transitions together; and Robyn and Andrew, who are thinking about getting engaged.
