Discovery Life’s ‘New Girls on the Block’ Offers Authentic Look into the Lives of Transgender Women

This Saturday, April 11, viewers will meet a highly inspirational and entertaining group of transgender women from Kansas City, MO in Discovery Life’s New Girls on the BlockThe five-part series will follow the group as they confront issues with their relationships, their femininity, their families and their friendships.

New Girls on the Block was first announced at the Television Critics Association this past January where stars including Macy Graham-Kimbrough, Sharon Granger, Robyn Clarke, and Andrew Boyce talked about their experiences living in transition and what it means to be part of such an authentic program.

Perhaps Macy says it best: “Part of this cloud of confusion about transgender people is surgeries…they start focusing on surgeries [but] the focus needs to be on our lives as people. We’re human beings. And our humanity gets lost in that cloud of confusion.”
