A petition on the website Change.org is asking for women’s lingerie company Victoria’s Secret to use a transgender model.

The petition specifically asks the company known for its sexy advertising, to consider Carmen Carrera.

Carrera is well known in the lgbt community after she transitioned into a woman after appearing as a contestant in the show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

Since her “Drag Race” days, Carrera has been making headlines as a show-stopping part of W Magazine’s “Showgirls” and a voice for transgender women through outlets such as GLAAD.

The petition says:

“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.”
