(WDAF) — She’s known for publicly transitioning into a woman after season three of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Since then she’s made headlines for her role in W Magazine’s “Showgirls.”

Now Carmen Carrera is at the center of a petitioncalling on Victoria’s Secret to make Carrera their first transgender model.

The petition states:

“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.”
