Whoopi Goldberg is executive producing a new series about transgender models for Oxygen, which will follow a set of "driven and determined" models who are all hoping to become household names in fashion.  The models in the series, which is called Strut, are all supported by Slay Model Management, the world’s first exclusively transgender modeling agency. "People tend to focus on the stereotype instead of the person," Goldberg said in a statement, "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."
