“Strut,” a reality show about transgender models, revealed a first look at its premiere season in a new trailer.

Cameras follow “America’s Next Top Model” alum and Maryland native Isis King, Dominique Jackson, Arisce Wanzer, Ren Spriggs and Instagram celebrity Laith De La Cruz on their journeys to make it big in the modeling industry as transgender models.

Whoopi Goldberg produces the new series.

“Our models come from all walks of life; all different backgrounds and ethnicities. 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,” Goldberg said in a statement. “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.’”

“Strut” premieres Sept. 20 on Oxygen.
