Among all the famous drag queens to have participated in RuPaul’s Drag Race, only a few can claim to be as successful as Carmen Carrera.
One of the competitors of the series' third season, Carmen has gone far ahead than most to achieve her dreams and goals.
Amid her rising popularity and fame over the years, she grabbed headlines when news about her transition from a gay male to a heterosexual female came into focus.
Carrera Before & After Surgery
Born on 13 April 1985, Carmen Carrera (birthname: Christopher Roman) is a native of New Jersey. Initially, of male sexuality, Carmen considered herself to be a gay man at first.
However, since her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race, she changed her life completely around.
Gaining widespread attention for recurring on the show in the same season, she quickly grew into a fan favorite. After the show ended, the newfound fans and followers received a big surprise when she revealed she was no longer a man but a woman in all entirety.

The topic of transitioning is usually quite well hidden. Most would not even dare to reveal such a sensitive issue, but according to Carmen,
“When I decided to transition, I knew I wanted to make my experience public… I think that often, those of us who work in entertainment or live in a place like New York are in such a bubble that we forget how hard it is for trans people in middle America, or in other countries where different forms of beauty aren’t as accepted. I wanted to use my transition as an opportunity to show people that I acknowledge their struggle. But I also wanted to show them what can be possible… that you can be your true self and experience genuine joy.”
Not many would have thought about revealing their sexuality and transgender as she did. Having had been a drag queen for many years, no one would have ever noticed that she was a biological male.

Nevertheless, standing up to her beliefs, Carmen made the announcement. Though she has received some backlash from her revelation, the reality star doesn't regret the life choices she has made.
Carmen Carerra Husband
Carmen and her spouse, Adrian Torres, have had a complicated romantic history.
The pair first met each other in 2009. After frequently getting spotted at many events, the duo decided to get married only after a few months of dating. During an interview, Carmen said that the relationship was strong, and so was their married life.
However, the romance wasn't as intact as she thought it to be, and the pair soon drifted away. The couple silently split with no resentment or anger regarding their separation.

While the two kept in contact even after being divided, it was in the show Couples Therapy where their love truly blossomed. Deciding to give their relationship a second chance, both entered the 6th season of the show.
And the decision worked very well; they finally realized they were destined to be husband and wife.

Knowing that she was going home, a married woman gave her a sense of peace.
The couple officially got married on 10 June 2015 at a private house in Chatsworth, California. But their wedding got aired on 9 December, the finals of Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn.
With this, she became the first transgender woman to get married on reality TV.
Initially, when the couple was together, they felt like it was them against the world, but after their marriage, they knew it was them with the world. The wedding gave the couple a sense of freedom to be proud of what they have and who they are.
Happily married to date, Carmen and spouse Adrian share a beautiful family. Adreian has been there for her through important moments in her life, and their love has forever kept them together.
Carmen is now a step-mother to Adrian's two daughters: 16-year-old Ahsia and Leeah - age 11 - from her husband's past relations. Having their children by their side while they made the commitment really solidified their existence as a family.
