It was reported at the end of May that Whoopi Goldberg was hard at work executive producing a fashion-focused reality show for Oxygen, and now the series, entitled "Strut," has an official cast and trailer, which you can watch below, ahead of its debut in September. 

The new show partnered with Slay Model Management — the first exclusively trans modeling agency — and follows five transgender models as they build their careers in the fashion industry while navigating the challenges in their own personal lives and relationships.

"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," says Goldberg in a press release. "It's time to separate caricature from real people and that's what we are doing with 'Strut.'" 

"Strut" will premiere on Tues., Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. EST/PST on Oxygen. Click through the slideshow below to get to know each cast member before the first episode airs.
