CNN —  

Victoria’s Secret is synonymous with sultry femininity, and if Carmen Carrera had her way, that would include transgendered women as well.

Fans have petitioned for the transgender burlesque performer and model to join the ranks of Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerr as Victoria’s Secret’s newest Angel. The Change.org petition, which calls Carrera “a force to be reckoned with,” says such a move by Victoria’s Secret would “show the entire community that they embrace trans patrons.” The petition has received more than 36,000 signatures, but Carrera told CNN en Español that she has yet to hear from the lingerie company.
