“Besides accepting us or being tolerant or knowing the right language, [and] actually knowing that there are girls like me who feel like the new girls. We need our sisters. Now [that] we’ve gone through the transition and we’re just trying to fit in and live a good, successful, happy life,” she says.
With Caitlyn Jenner and other transgender celebrities like Laverne Cox, being transgender is more mainstream. They have started the conversation and whether they’ve received positive or negative feedback, people are talking and that’s very important.
Carrera is excited about living in the now and becoming part of the mainstream because so many trans-gender people have been discriminated, ridiculed, and hurt in the past. She is also an AIDS/HIV activist. Carrera is excited about what the future will hold. So far she’s on her second reality show on VH1’s Couples Therapy and was also in the movie, Ricky and the Flash with Meryl Streep. Her future is very bright and hopefully she will also fulfill her dream of becoming Victoria’s Secret first transgender Angel.
