Carmen Carrera is a trailblazer, performing artist, actress and fashion muze. Getting her start on RuPauls Drag Race as a drag performer before transitioning into the woman she is today, she became the first openly trans model to be signed to the prestigious modeling agency, Elite Model Management of New York City and became the first model in history to be petitioned by the public to walk the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. She made her television acting debut along side Gina Rodriguez on the CW’s hit show, Jane the Virgin, and made her silver screen debut alongside Meryl Streep in Jonathan Demme’s Ricki & The Flash. Since then she’s been an outspoken activist for trans inclusivity and body diversity being featured in the pages of Vogue, W Magazine, Glamour Magazine, Time Magazine, and Elle Magazine to name a few. Most recently she has started her own digital marketing agency called CC3 Entertainment which focuses on creating opportunities for LGBTQ influencers in the digital space. She continues to be an ally for women’s issues and an inspirational for all of us to be who we truly are.
Carmen Carrera is not one to bite her tongue for the sake of creating change. She has used her platform to speak out against size diversity and inclusion in the fashion industry as well as infamously speaking up about transphobia and the exclusion of trans people as an alumni of the hit show, RuPauls Drag Race. Carreras comments have become a catalyst for major change.
