In just under two weeks, the second season of Transcendent will premiere on FUSE, and Parade magazine just offered a sneak peek, profiling the five fabulous trans women from the GLAAD Media-Award nominated docu-series.
This powerful, trail-blazing program highlights the ups and downs of the lives of Bambiana, Bionka, L.A., Nya and Xristina as they balance transitioning, relationships and achieving their dreams with their performances at AsiaSF, a San Francisco nightclub. This season, the growing rift between the girls erupts, romantic relationships are put to the test, and the ladies are given a huge opportunity by an influential SF neighbor.
One of Fuse’s top achievements, the series delivers an up-close and personal glimpse into the very human triumphs and tribulations of trans women. Season two promises to be stronger, louder and prouder than ever before. Here’s a sneak peek of the fierce and fabulous women as they embark on their second season.
Transcendent premieres Wednesday, June 8 at 11:30 p.m. ET.
Meet the girls below.
Bambiana was born to be in the spotlight. Blessed with a supportive family, she is a hopeless romantic and a work in progress in the areas of love.
Having worked hard to overcome a childhood of bullying, Bionka refuses to let anything or anyone get in her way.
The baby of the group, LA was just beginning her transition when Transcendent premiered. Still looking for guidance from her friends as she explores her physical transition, LA has come into her own with both a new love and new-found confidence.
Nya has been one of AsiaSF’s hottest performers since she began working at the club. Now, having realized her dream of becoming an AsiaSF manager, Nya is faced with the reality of managing the different— and sometimes volatile—personalities at the club.
Xristina radiates resiliency and confidence. Her vulnerability is her real strength. She considers humanity her true “label.”
