Nat Geo TV will debut a special hour-long feature looking at the lives of three transgender people and their families called American Transgender. Airing Tuesday, May 1, at 8:00 p.m. EST, American Transgender offers an up close and personal peek into the daily lives of three trans people: Eli Strong, Clair Farley, and Jim Howley.
Producers say the show aims to show us how the three manage at work, build careers, maintain friendships, and nurture lasting, intimate partnerships. And according to the NatGeo blog, the show lets Strong, Farley, and Howley tell their stories "in their own words as we follow them through life’s daily battles and victories, both large and small."
You can find interviews with all three stars on the National Geographic site as well as a trailer for the special.
