I don’t exactly have an insight into the inner workings of Victoria’s Secret but I’m guessing that they get tons and tons of applications and pleas from #mooiness who reckon they’d make a great addition to the current roster of Angels. So why on earth should we even care about one such request from Carmen Carrera?!
Granted by most accounts she’s quite the looker but based on the quality exuded by the likes of our local #mooiness Candice Swanepoel she’s going to have a pretty hard task selling it to the powers that be. Maybe that’s why there’s been a formal petition set up with over 35 000 digital signatures on it already to try and win her a place over here.
Still confused as to why there’s been such a fuss? Well… If you had paid close attention to that last link destination you would have realised that Carmen Carrera is in fact a transgender model, who shot to fame after participating in Ru Paul’s Drag Race (a reality show about drag).
Yup. Technically you were just perving hard on a dude. Regardless of how that makes you feel, the petition does raise plenty of questions around Victoria’s Secret policy on the selection of transgender models to represent their brand. I guess that by allowing Carmen Carrera to be an Angel, Victoria Secret would take a massive step towards ending femmephobia, from there onwards being recognised as a brand that cares.
Really proud of myself for sharing this vital news with you on a very mature level without even once mentioning the word Tranny. Oh wait… nevermind.
