Victoria's Secret Petitioned To Make Carmen Carrera Its First Transgender Model

Posted: Updated:

"RuPaul's Drag Race" season three favorite Carmen Carrera made history when she publicly transitioned after the show's conclusion.

Since her "Drag Race" days, Carrera has been making headlines as a show-stopping part of W Magazine's "Showgirls" and a voice for transgender women through outlets such as GLAAD.

Now, following her appearance in the Marco Marco runway show, a new petition is calling on lingerie giant Victoria's Secret to reach out to Carrera and invite the trailblazing icon to become the brand's first transgender model.

The petition notes:
"This petition is for Victoria's Secret to seriously consider taking Carmen Carrera on as an angel. By making Carmen the very first trans supermodel, you will help to end femmephobia within the LGBTIQQA community but also it will show the entire trans community that you embrace them as your patrons."
