Rowling’s fantasy book series, the epic films that introduced the world to vocal gay ally and Trevor Project spokesman Daniel Radcliffe come to an end with the July 15 premiere of the eighth magical installment.

Premiering July 16, the second installment of Style Network’s new documentary series takes an in-depth look at the lives of five male-to-female transgender people — a model, a musician, a fashion executive, a counselor, and an escort — living in New York City and confronting issues of sexual identity, relationships, surgery, and daily discrimination. The subjects include Nina Poon (pictured), former cohost of VH1’s TRANSform Me.
