Logo, Model Geena Rocero Launch Transgender Youth-Themed Web Series

Transgender model Geena Rocero has partnered with LGBT-themed cabler Logo for “Beautiful as I Want to Be,” a video series spotlighting transgender youth.

Each of the four-part episodes (teased below) will be introduced by Rocero and focus on partnering young trans people with successful trans leaders to explore how they define beauty and identity. Young trans people share their backstories, their identity journeys and their dreams for the future. Their mentor/coach then readies them for a transformative photo shoot and offers life advice.

“I am excited to share with trans youth the ways that I’ve used modeling and art to creatively express myself and to realize my dreams,” said Rocero. “This project is to affirm our youth’s potential, their beauty and the possibilities when we celebrate and allow them to be their most authentic selves.”

“Beautiful as I Want to Be” premieres on Oct. 28. It’s directed by Raul Gasteazoro and executive produced by Allie Hoffman and Rocero. Jonathan Mallow and Sarah DeFilippis serve as executive producers for Logo.

Although trans people have seen an increase presence in television, thanks in part to Amazon’s Emmy-winning “Transparent” and E!’s docuseries “I am Cait,” Logo has a history of representing them on screen. Its reality show “Transamerican Love Story” received the GLAAD Media Award in 2009. “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word,” Logo’s 2014 documentary about transgender youth, received the Daytime Emmy Award for outstanding special.
