'Big Brother' to Feature First Transgender Houseguest

In a moment that is seeing unprecedented exposure on television for the transgender community, CBS's Big Brother will soon join the conversation when the show welcomes its first transgender houseguest. The casting of 25-year-old transgender woman Audrey Middleton, a digital media consultant from Villa Rica, Georgia, was announced Tuesday, along with the rest of the houseguests. At the time of the initial casting announcement — which included the names, ages, hometowns and occupations of the houseguests — CBS made no mention of the historic casting.
