No, not a love story between these two. (Not that kind of love, anyway.) But gay comedian Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) will play host for Calpernia Addams’ upcoming dating show. To quote Alec on this photo shoot: “It’s like Angelina and Maddox!”
Yes, Calpernia Addams is the new bachelorette! Logo recently greenlit a new reality series starring the actress/activist called Transamerican Love Story to air in February. On the show, Calpernia will choose from eight men living together in a Los Angeles-area home, and, unlike some other shows I could name (and I will: There’s Something About Miriam), all of these bachelors know Calpernia is trans.
Actress and activist Calpernia Addams’ tragic romance with an Army private in Kentucky inspired the 2003 movie Soldier’s Girl. She also founded Deep Stealth Productions, a media company that supports transsexual women.
But I want to know: What will Calpernia pass out to her men? Chains? Roses? Over-sized clocks? Nothing seems to measure up…I’ll have to wait and see.
Check below for more pictures from the photo shoot…including Calpernia with her friend and fellow activist, Andrea James (who will also appear on the show)…
