Move over America’s Next Top Model, a new reality show’s in town and it might just win our hearts over.

Whoopi Goldberg’s ‘Strut’ is a modelling reality show and all its contestants are transgender individuals.

‘Our models come from all walks of life, all different backgrounds and ethnicities,’ said Goldberg. ‘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.’

The 60-year-old award-winning actress and executive producer of the show added: ‘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.”‘

The show works with Slay Model Management, the world’s first exclusively transgender modelling agency.

The models featured are: Laith De La Cruz, Dominique Jackson, Isis King, Ren Spriggs and Arisce Wanzer.

‘A decade ago you were hiding on the runway – but now it’s a new age,’ Jackson said in the trailer.

The show premieres 20 September on Oxygen.

‘These models are transforming the runway and redefining what it means to follow your dreams. I think you’ll laugh, and I think you’ll THINK,’ Goldberg said of the show.
