Carmen Carrera comes out – as transgender – By Georgia Garvey, RedEye

Carmen Carrera’s introduction to many of her fans started on the cult hit “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” where she became known for her flawless figure and glamorous look. Carrera, 24 of New Jersey, quickly turned into a fan favorite, even being brought back for another chance after her first elimination during the TV show’s third season.

Now Carrera is baring a much more personal side, announcing that she’s transgender and has begun transitioning to living as a woman full-time.
