Petition to make Carmen Carrera the first transgender Victoria's Secret model!

Please please sign at Change.org to help make this incredible woman the first trans VS Angel!

For those of you who don't know, Carmen is a former Drag Queen who rose to fame as a contestant on Series 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race (she came fifth, which is a massive injustice). After the show, she came out as transgender and has since transitioned, and has recently featured as a model in ads for Orbitz, on the runways in NYC and LA, and in a featured article in W Magazine (stunning pics are below).


I was lucky enough to see her perform at my University's annual Drag Show, and she was the highlight of the night. In person, she is one of the most stunning women I've ever seen, and when she answered questions following the performances she spoke so passionately about the gay and trans experiences. People like Carmen should be celebrated for who they are and the amazing awareness they raise for the LGBTQ community, and if she could become a Victoria's Secret model it could be a massive moment for transgender youth and the visibility of LGBTQ people, and a huge progressive step for VS, who haven't always been the best in promoting non-heteronormative ideas of beauty.

Look at this fierce woman, and tell me she can't work a set of angel wings!
