The Discovery Channel has a new series that chronicles the lives of transgender women. “New Girls on the Block” follows a group of women, who are all friends, from Kansas City. And all are transgendered. One of the series’ stars is Macy, and her story is quite interesting.
Macy was married to her spouse, Sharon, for five years before telling her that she was a woman, and wanted to transition from male to female. Sharon was quite supportive of Macy’s transition, but others weren’t as open to it. After being with the same company for 20 years, Macy was fired after she told them about her transitioning.
The series follows Macy and Sharon’s relationship and the trials they face.
“New Girls on the Block” airs on Saturdays on the Discovery Channel.
