Carmen Carrera

While many have used the reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race as a career launchpad, few have done so as memorably as Carmen Carrera, a Jersey girl who first reached the masses via stints on season three and RuPaul’s Drag U (a spinoff hosted by the “Supermodel of the World” alongside an array of “drag queen professors”). Since leaving the show and coming out as a trans woman, Carrera has proven herself as an actress and model, making appearances in W and Glamour magazines as well as the Meryl Streep vehicle Ricki and the Flash and the CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful. Represented by New York’s esteemed Elite Model Management, Carrera has grabbed headlines for speaking out against transphobic language (coming from the likes of Chelsea Handler, RuPaul and Bianca del Rio) and a 2013 petition that garnered nearly 50,000 signatures in the name of making her the first transgender model to walk the Victoria’s Secret runway. Carrera returns to the Alamo City for a performance at Heat courtesy of Rey Lopez Entertainment.
