Superstar drag queen, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Star and world-renowned performer, Ginger Minj released her memoir-part-cookbook, Southern Fried Sass, last night with a launch party and performance. Ginger joined some of her favorite Queens such as fellow Drag Race alum Miz Cracker, Peachez, and Marti Gould Cummings who lighted up the stage for a can’t-miss show. The book features Ginger’s Southern-inspired recipes, as well as some of her most vulnerable and celebratory moments, revealing the most valuable lessons she’s learned after years in drag and pearls of wisdom she’s gleaned from her grandmother’s personal brand of Southern resilience. From her Golden Tomato Quiche to her Granny’s famous cornbread, she has a recipe and incredible story to accompany every occasion. Ginger will also release “Southern Fried Sass” – a playful, yet heartfelt song inspired by the cookbook in early November to coincide with the release of the book.
Ginger Minj starred in Season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race as well as Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, and she was a finalist most recently on the 6th Season of All Stars. Since Drag Race, Ginger has gone on to tour the world, star in major movies, including the Emmy nominated Disney’s 2022 Hocus Pocus 2, star in and direct original Broadway shows, and release multiple albums. Ginger is currently touring the world and performing on RuPaul’s Drag Race: Werq The World Tour 2023 world tour.
