This would be so exciting: has petitioned Victoria’s Secret to hire Carmen Carrera as its first transgender model. You may remember Carrera from season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. After the show, she made a public gender transformation. Since then she has been working as one of W’s sexy “Showgirls,” and she recently lit up the runway in a Marco Marco fashion show.

The petition asks 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.”
