Transgendered people have been popping up on television a lot in the past year, and Dr. Marci Bowers is happy to see it.
Bowers, who herself was born a man, is adding to the trend with her WEtv reality show Sex Change Hospital, which follows her work performing sex change operations from her clinic in Trinidad, Colorado.
She says, I think its quite phenomenal that transgendered people are on television. Its certainly making people think.
Bowers calls the growing number of TV trannies another new frontier crossed, and believes her show is the next step in more diverse programming.
Shes not sure how much unchartered territory is left after her show explores gender switching procedures in detail.
With the transgendered trend in full swing, Bowers hopes to bring attention to the struggle men and women face when dealing with gender issues.
Sex Change Hospital premieres tomorrow (Oct. 14) on WEtv.
