Feast your eyes on the breathtaking, beautiful and dazzling Carmen Carrera. Take a good look now before she becomes globally mega-famous as the world’s very first transgender Victoria’s Secret model. Carrera is the subject of a new Change.org petition that asks Victoria’s Secret put Carrera on the runway.
The petition suggests that hiring Carrera as a lingerie supermodel will not only give the world some amazing eye candy, but will also fulfill a bigger purpose: it will serve to bolster the cause of transgender acceptance in society. The move to hire Carrera, the petition says, “will help to end femmephobia within the LGBTIQQA community. It will show the entire trans community that you embrace them as your patrons.” The petition is growing in strength and currently sports over 28,000 signatures.
Carrera has previously starred on RuPaul’s Drag Race, coming in fifth place. She was snapped up by the Elite Model Management modeling agency shortly after the show ended. She has completed her transition to female, she said on her Facebook page. While Carrera did not participate in the petition’s creation, she is very enthused about its existence and says she would be very happy to be on the runway. On her Facebook page, she says of the petition’s first day:
I just want to take a moment to say WOW! In less than a day the signature count has gone from a few hundred to almost 10,000! I’m amazed! And just to make it clear, this petition is not to force VS to do anything. It’s to prove that the world is ready for change and possibilities are endless! Thank you so much for contributing and if you haven’t signed it yet you can find the link on my timeline. We’re just getting started, we can make this huge!!!!!
Her Facebook page is loaded with fan support, with commenters taking to the public post section to cheer her on. “I don’t know if anyone has shared this yet,” wrote one fan, speaking about the petition, “but I think it’s great that it’s getting everywhere. Victoria Secret would be lucky to have a beautiful woman like you as one of their angels.” ”
“Just wanted to say that I’m proud of you, and that your beautiful and I wish only the sky’s limits to your dreams Carmen,” says another admirer.
While Victoria’s Secret would be a major feather in Carrera’s cap, the sexy lingerie company might have to steal Carrera away from numerous other projects. She is an incredibly busy lady, running her own YouTube channel, modeling, and making appearances on a variety of television shows. She is also an AIDS activist who works tirelessly to raise awareness about the disease as well as funding for further research.
Carmen Carrera: head-turner, activist, model, actress, writer and star. Will she be hired by Victoria’s Secret? Will we be able to feast our eyes on this gorgeous and talented woman, watching her soar in her well-earned angel wings? Stay tuned!
