Carmen Carrera’s rise to fame in the fashion world has been meteroric ever since the drag queen superstar made the transition from male to female after appearing on the third season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Now, fans of Carrera are trying to push her to new heights in fashion as a petition has been started to make Carrera the first transgender model for Victoria’s Secret.

In the petition, fans are asking Victoria’s Secret to invite Carrera, who has been photographed by Steven Meisel multiple times for W magazine and recently walked the Marco Marco fashion show in L.A., to join models like Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio as an Angel for the brand.

“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.

“If you watched Carmen at the Marco Marco runway show at LA Fashion week this year, then you know she has what it takes to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel,” read the petition.

The petition already has nearly 23,000 supporters and Carrera recently took some time to thank her fans for the support.

“I just want to say THANK YOU soooooo much to the fans who started this petition! I love you guys! Let’s share it and make it MAJOR!!! ♥” wrote Carrera. “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!” she later wrote.

Clearly this petition is becoming more and more major by the day and we agree that having a trans model for Victoria’s Secret would help to broaden society’s horizens when it comes to embracing all forms of beauty and sexuality.
