Fuse’s hit docu-series Transcendent – produced by World of Wonder’s Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey – is about to tell the truth a SECOND time with their new season premiering TOMORROW night at 11:30P/10:30C following a brand new season of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce.

They have known they were trans almost since they could say the word “trans.”
“I knew I was trans at 6, but when I started transitioning it wasn’t until 16 or 17 when I started dibbling and dabbling in dressing up,” Bionka tells PEOPLE, adding she went into being trans wearing baggy clothes because she was “depressed” and “that was all my father would give to me because he had really good relationships with the people from Cross Colours.”
Nya, on the other hand, transitioned with pop culture: “I was wearing girls clothing in kindergarten and then I kind of went back and forth,” she says. “I went back to boys clothes because all the girls were wearing boys clothes – like TLC, MC Lyte, Aaliyah – so I was like, Well, I guess I’ll wear boy clothes.”
They thank Caitlyn Jenner, but still hope for “full acceptance.”
“Caitlyn definitely has opened the door to show what happens when someone from upper class America decides to transition, but I’ve seen a change happening in general,” says Bionka of the progress in the trans world since Jenner revealed her journey. “Just from being on Facebook and what not, the type of guys that hit me up now are these 18-, 19-, 21-year-old guys who know I’m trans and don’t care, and then you’re battling these 30-, 40-, 50-year-old guys that ask if I’ve had bottom surgery yet and don’t know if they could go there.”
