Celebrating the beauty, evolution and resilience of trans women’s bodies, in the form of “showgirl” Carmen Carrera doing her thing — with the legendary Steven Meisel for W.
There’s something majestic about seeing Carmen wield her body as the centerpiece of talent in this short film. So visible, on stage in control of her body and adoring (lustful) audience. The sexual innuendo of that champagne popping scene, though…get it gurl!
Make sure you read Carmen’s essay as well:
I want to leave something behind so people can look back one day and say, “Wow, remember when transpeople were discriminated against the most? This person was like, ‘Screw everybody! I’m going to parade around half-naked and be superproud, because that’s how everyone should be!’ ”
