In a shocking nude poster series, RuPaul’s Drag Race alum and trans-activist, Carmen Carrera plays the role of both Adam and Eve for Vienna’s Life Ball. This event, which is the biggest charity event in Europe, raises funds for the support of people living with HIV and AIDS.

The shocking photographs, captured by photographer David LaChapelle, come in two separate versions: the first shows Carmen with male genitalia, and the second with female genitalia. LaChapelle explains, “Gender lines are blurred and every person is unique in how they seem themselves. For me, the body is more than something to be looked at as an object of sexual gratification. The body is a beautiful housing for the soul that we are celebrating in this picture.”

The word’s on the poster translate into English as, “I am Adam, I am Eve, I am Me”. They are words that hit close to home with how Carmen feels about gender:

Your gender should not matter in your heart or in the way you express your personality. We shouldn’t be afraid to stick to a model, because there are so many types of diverse people on this planet. My message is: beauty has no gender. At the end of the day beauty is beauty.”

These posters come as quite a shock, seeing as Carmen has continually showed displeasure when it comes to being asked about her genitalia. And it seems that not everybody is happy about it…

The legendary Lady Bunny chimed in on Facebook by saying:

Well, if you ever wanted to see Carmen Carrera’s d(ck, here ya go! She’s the model for the Life Ball 2014 poster shot by David LaChappelle. She hid the fact that she’s trans to compete on Drag Race–a show for drag queens–and then slammed the show for it’s use of shemale, because that’s an offensive porn term. Now she has her d(ck hanging out but that’s not porn, it’s art. I think I understand…”

I started doing drag in 2009 while in college and immediately fell in love with the art. I decided to launch Dragaholic in early 2014 while traveling around the world, and now my life revolves around the amazing world of drag entertainment! I'm so blessed to have been able to meet and interview so many amazing queens since launching Dragaholic. Feel free to tweet me at @DragaholicTim if you find any drag-related news or if you just feel like having a kiki! Dragaholic keeps me pretty busy, but I always love connecting with all the readers!

    I personally don’t mind seeing Carmen naked at all. I think every part of her body is beautiful, and I do mean every part! The one thing that does bother me, however, is the picture where they Photoshopped a vagina in. I’m glad they did both versions so we could see how great she truly looks in the buff. If people have a problem seeing a beautiful woman that just so happens to have a penis, that’s their problem. They need to get a grip! I think there’s nothing but beauty in that picture.
