Exclusively-trans agency Slay Models has brought their most recent annual model search to Here TV in the new six-part docuseries, Road to the Runway.

The show profiles the search’s twenty finalists, visiting their roots and uncovering their varied journeys to the agency.Throughout the show’s premiere, Slay Models director Cece Asuncion consults with the agency’s first model, trans runway icon (and friend of the Queerties) Arisce Wanzer.Arisce, who also hosted the previous model searches, has found herself acting as something of a mentor to the girls over time – when her busy schedule gets a second to breathe, of course.We got a chance to chat with her about the new series, diversity in the industry, and the roadmap to the runway that she’s helped create.The Road to the Runway docuseries may be covering a competition, but it’s certainly no competition show.
