A drag queen and contestant on the hit show Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK has announced they are vegan.

Drag queen Bimini Bon-Boulash, who is non-binary, announced: ‘I’m vegan’ whilst making their entrance in the premiere episode. It aired on 14 January.

Bimini’s announced their plant-based diet during their first entrance

‘East London’s plant-based princess’

The 26-year-old joked: “I’m East London’s plant-based princess.

“I’m like, the most famous vegan in East London because I don’t stop going on about it.”

On their Instagram, Bimini added: “My entrance into the werkroom today feels so surreal but thank you all for the love and support!”

Vegan drag queens

The second series of the show features 12 drag queens from across the UK. Bimini is not the first vegan drag queen to enter the UK spin-off.

Scaredy Kat received praise on the first series for promoting veganism to her thousands of Instagram followers.

Bimini and Scaredy Kat join a line-up of fellow drag queens who have ditched meat, such as Courtney Act, Sharon Needles, and Honey La Bronx.

Animal rights controversy

Ru Paul’s Drag Race has been slammed by vegans in the past. On the US original, contestant Asia O’Hara was criticized after she released live butterflies from an outfit which caused many of them to die.

She was forced to apologize: ‘It’s important that everyone knows that I would never purposely hurt any living being and have the utmost respect for all animals.’
