The show, titled Strut, follows a group of the agency's talent who dream of becoming household names.

The 60-year-old explained why she feels the project will be an important addition to Oxygen's programming, saying in a statement:

"This show is important right now, because for all of the positive advances the community has made and continues to make, transgender is still a hot-button word that gets people hysterical. People tend to focus on the stereotype instead of the person, and this series will give viewers a unique opportunity to spend time with real people who are struggling with the same challenges we all face as we make our way through the world."

The series' stars hope to one day change the way society perceives beauty and gender.

Miz Goldberg also added that she wants to make people realize they should be more accepting of the transgender community, exclaiming:

San Diego Padres Baseball Team Accused Of Homophobia After National Anthem Mistake Involving The City's Gay Men's Chorus

no title

Drama down in San Diego — and it's getting icky.

The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was all set to sing the National Anthem on Saturday night at the San Diego Padres' MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things went very wrong very quickly — and now, here comes the fall out.

The chorus, which brought one hundred singers to the game to sing the anthem, was trotted out into center field to perform — but something went wrong with the public address system at the team's home stadium, Petco Park.

At the start of their song, a recording of women singing the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker, and it was never stopped.

The chorus then had to walk off the field after not being able to perform, and the group alleges they faced chants of "you sing like a girl" from the fans while leaving the stadium in shame.

Furthermore, the chorus alleges that the event almost didn't happen in the first place, as the Padres tried to make the entire group buy tickets to the game before they were able to perform.

The gorgeous guy explained to E! News on Friday that he's super supportive of the hunky actor's decision, saying:

"He's a good guy and he's a good actor…Such a goodhearted gentle loving guy. I'm happy that he's happy."

We wholeheartedly agree!

And, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 star even admitted that there have been times when people have tried to get him to spill secrets about Colton's sexual preference, recalling:

"A fan three or four months ago at a Comic-Con convention basically tried to bait me into outing him. I got in touch with [Colton] and was like, 'Hey, man, this happened [and] I didn't know what to say. I simply deflected and we moved on.'…He emailed me back and said, 'You know, I really appreciate that and I've recently made some decisions over the past few months and I'm excited about what's in the future.' I'm excited for him, too."

Awwwwww! The famous father is such a good confidante!

In the interview where the Teen Wolf alum came out, he also addressed his lifelong struggle with anxiety, which is something the Canada native noticed when they worked together, remembering:
