The Drag Race alum is using her voice to entertain and inform.

This glamour toad is putting in the work!

Ginger Minj made it all the way to finale on the seventh season of RuPaul's Drag Race and the sixth season of All Stars. She also made up part of the iconic cast that competed on the second season of All Stars.

Since her time on TV, the star has dabbled into multiple entertainment spaces and has used her platform to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.

"If I learned anything from RuPaul, it's the hustle is real. You gotta get out there and keep doing it," Minj tells Out.

During this past Pride Month, Minj kicked her off I Am What I Am Campaign with the release of her cover and a powerful video for the iconic song “I Am What I Am,” originally introduced in the Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles.

As a Florida native, the song serves as a response to the numerous anti-drag bills being signed and introduced throughout the country.

"100% of the proceeds go directly to the Drag Defense Fund [and] the ACLU. To me, Pride has always been about being proud of your community and trying to uplift them -- not about making the money. I've been very blessed with the platforms I've had to turn out an entire campaign that benefits the community," she says.

Beyond her activism, Minj is bringing her charisma and talent to Provincetown for a third year in a row with her brand new show The Broads' Way.

"I'm only blessed to be able to do what I'm doing because I stand on the shoulders of eons and eons of queens who were brave enough to get out there and do it. We've been sold out every single night. It's been insanely fulfilling."

The show stars Minj and Gidget Galore as they cover and reimagine some of the most iconic Broadway songs in herstory.

"It is a Broadway tribute in the way that only Ginger Minj can give it to you. We flip it on its head. We make fun of it. We revere it. We definitely celebrate all things Broadway, but in a very silly, stupid, unexpected way. Even though we are having fun, there is a message that is being professed between myself and the audience. Then, they go out there and spread that joy and love and positivity into the rest of the world."

The Broads' Way is playing now at The Art House in Provincetown. Get tickets here.
