THE BIMINI BON BESTSELLER ( Sunday Times official!)

The perfect Christmas gift for RuPaul’s Drag Race fans! A hilarious and inspiring guide to transforming your life through lessons from drag, by the UK’s favourite drag queen and Drag Race UK star, Bimini Bon Boulash.

‘MAGIC! A fun, fierce, honest origin story of how to drag yourself up out of trouble and become an icon’ Katherine Ryan

‘A triumph for UK queer culture’ Travis Alabanza

‘Eye-opening, intelligent, thoughtful as well as sassy and surprising - a must read’ Lorraine Kelly

Bimini Bon Boulash is the nation’s sweetheart, capturing hearts and minds as the gag-inducing, death-dropping, plant-based breakout star of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 2 . Not only did she make us laugh and cry, she showed us how to develop a Positive Mental Attitude and live happily and healthily outside society’s idea of ‘normal’.

Telling the story of how drag took her from the brink of self-destruction to the mainstage, as well as life lessons drawing on convention-breaking icons from Kate Moss to Katie Price, in this book Bimini uses all her wit, charm and kindness to show us how to lead the lives we wish we could lead, through the life-changing magic of dragging up.

‘Radical, life-affirming, and utterly important for this time’ Riyadh Khalaf

‘A very important read’ Gottmik

‘She’s a superstar’ Kathy Burke

‘You will always be our winner’ Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London

‘A force of nature’ James Acaster
