The Oxygen Channel will be airing a show that seems promising. The four-part series will includes profiles of nine women who break sterotypes in “Love Without Labels”. The segment about a girl coming out about her transgender girlfriend to her conservative Mexican Catholic family will air on Tuesday, January 6 at 9 pm. I hope you check it out with me!
