‘Beautiful as I Want to Be’: New Digital Series Celebrates The Beauty of Trans Youth

By B. Root

Transgender supermodel Geena Rocero and Logo have teamed up to create Beautiful as I Want to Be, a digital-exclusive series highlighting trans youth.

The four-part series is scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, October 28, on and Logo’s YouTube channel.

With Rocero serving as host and executive producer, and a production crew of almost all transgender entertainment professionals, Beautiful as I Want to Be partners successful trans leaders with four trans young people to explore their ideas of beauty and identity. Each episode focuses on one individual who will share their backstory and identity journey as well as their dreams of the future. Their mentor then prepares them for a photo shoot, giving creative direction and life advice along the way. Through hair, makeup, and wardrobe, the young person will be transformed into their ultimate expression of beauty.

Rocero says of the series, “This project is to affirm our youth’s potential, their beauty, and the possibilities when we celebrate and allow them to be their most authentic selves.”
