She nails the difference between gay and trans.

Supermodel and former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant Carmen Carrera has opened up about her life pre-transition. Carrera spoke candidly to Disruption Magazine about trying to discover her own identity as a 4th grader. That same mentality carried on until her early 20’s, when she was trying to figure out what it means to be a gay man. No matter how much she learned about being gay, she realized that she was still living a lie.

“I would pray to God in the 4th grade I remember,” Carrera told Disruption Magazine about her prayers to transition. “‘God, could you just make me a girl tomorrow, please? Like, I’ll be really good.'”

Then, she teases us with some small talk about her upcoming HBO documentary.

Carrera has teamed up with HBO to give Latinos a glimpse into what it’s like to be LGBTQ in Latin America. According to Carrera’s interview, she has already covered Brazil, Mexico and Colombia, and is discovering exactly what it means to be queer and trans in those countries.

There isn’t a whole of info out there about the documentary, so all we can do is wait patiently.
