This is a first on U.S. television!

MTV's GLBT channel, Logo, will be airing a reality dating show starring a transgender woman as the lead!

Transamerican Love Story is centered on transgender activist and actress Calpernia Addams.

The show follows Calpernia as she whittles down a group of eight bachelors, living together in a Los Angeles-area home, with the help of her best friend and fellow transgender activist Andrea James.

Unlike some shock TV in Europe, Calpernia is openly transgender to all the show’s suitors from the start of the series.

The hour-long show is hosted by openly gay comedian and actor Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) and will premiere in February.

Transamerican Love Story is executive produced by Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell of World of Wonder Productions, who oversee our favorite show on television!
