Ginger Minj appeared on Season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race, and appears in the upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars. In 2015 she appeared at the Laurie Beechman in her autobiographical musical piece Crossdresser for Christ, which returned for several encore dates, as well as a holiday-themed show. Ginger had a song on the 2015 album Christmas Queens, and is releasing a solo album to coincide with the upcoming Beechman show. Ginger has long reigned as The Comedy Queen of The South, winning pageant titles including “Miss Gay United States 2013,” “Miss National Comedy Queen 2012” and others. Originally from Leesburg, Florida – a town so small they didn’t even have a McDonald’s – she now calls Orlando home.
Minj cites classic funny ladies Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball as her idols. “Anyone who can pile three wigs on their head, squeeze their body into a beaded and rhinestoned gown and serve humor alongside the glamour is my hero,” says Ginger. Ginger’s future career goals, in addition to winning the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar,” on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is to follow in the footsteps of similar plus-sized comedians like Melissa McCarthy and Rebel Wilson. And she’s already got the acting credits; before becoming Ginger Minj, this talented performer was a child actor starring in a series of Christian movies and books on tape, and even won a Best Actor Award for the state of Florida in 2002
