In our continuing coverage of this year’s GLAAD Media Awards nominees, we’re looking at the Outstanding Reality Series category this time around, which features the best glimpses into the trans world from a trans teen, a group of San Francisco trans women who work together, as well as (probably) the most recognizable transgender woman, who was a former male Olympian.

The GLAAD Media Awards will be presented in Los Angeles on April 2, 2016, and New York on May 14. For more details on the shows and ordering tickets to attend, go to the GLAAD website.
