An eye-opener that's also funny, real and compelling, the series is a heartwarming reminder that no matter who we are, we're all born this way.

The show nonetheless manages to stay dignified and realistic (in a reality-TV kind of way).

Dec 9, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

By treating the cast of Born This Way in much the same way they would treat any reality-show participants, the producers avoid any kind of condescending or patronizing tone.

It offers viewers the valuable opportunity to gain a better understanding of the cast's experiences, and to rethink how we tend to characterize people with special needs.
