Ginger Minj

Long Before She Held Court As A Finalist On Season 7 Of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Ginger Reigned As The Comedy Queen Of The South From Her Homebase In Orlando, Florida. “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 Minj. That’s Why She Coined The Term “Glamour Toad” To Describe Her Unique Persona.

In 2016, Ginger released her debut album, Sweet Tea, which was soon followed by years spent touring the world and performing show tunes for Broadway royalty on national television. With over 200,000 global streams, Ginger went on to star in the 2018 Netflix feature film, Dumplin’ (Jennifer Anniston, Dove Cameron), and in June 2021 released her sophomore album Gummy Bear, which peaked at #2 on the iTunes Comedy Album Chart.

With an exciting new collection on the horizon, Ginger Minj is tapping into her genuine southern roots and is ready to introduce herself to the country music genre with her third studio album, Double Wide Diva. With this release, Ginger is drawing from her own life experiences to share a collection of authentic songs, revealing a never-before-seen side of Ginger Minj. The project’s lead single, “Walk Tall,” was inspired by a pivotal moment in Ginger’s childhood, showcasing her captivating vocal range with an inspiring message to overcome negativity and be yourself. Ginger is a finalist of Season 6 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” and is continuously working on exciting projects to come in.
