“There’s no accounting for people’s taste,” Orlando-based entertainer Joshua Eads, known worldwide as drag performer Ginger Minj, jokes about his years of post “RuPaul’s Drag Race” success. “It’s gotten crazy. Every year gets crazier.” After finishing the popular drag competition’s seventh season as a finalist and sashaying onto its “All Stars 2” spin-off, Minj hasn’t stopped. She quickly brought her autobiographical, one-woman (but three person) show “Crossdresser for Christ” to fans worldwide and dropped a debut album.

Watermark caught up with Minj ahead of Tampa’s “Crossdresser” stop at the Straz Center to dish on drag, Disney divas and never slowing down.

I’ve been told I communicate too much. I really am an open book and there isn’t much I won’t talk about, no matter how personal it is. I also tend to divulge all the information I have when telling a story. It’s strange to me that everyone doesn’t do this, yet I assume they do anyway. This often gets me in trouble with my roommate.

“Why did she do that?” she asks when I’m done with my story. To which I reply, “I’ve given you all the information I have.” “Why didn’t you ask more questions?” she retorts. I explain that I just go by the information people give me. She calls me weird and I call her weird. After 18 years of living together, I assure you we are both weird.

About six years ago a pair of talented drag queens, along with an entire bunch of local performers, came to the Hamburger Mary’s in Orlando on a Sunday to entertain diners during a quiet brunch. Those queens were Ginger Minj and The Minx. They, along with their Broadway Brunch Bunch, have gone back every Sunday performing a send-up to live theater and making Hamburger Mary’s Broadway Brunch one of the most successful and beloved brunches across the country.

Ginger Minj left Broadway Brunch after appearing on season seven of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and now the announcement has come that the other half of Broadway Brunch’s original dynamic duo is leaving as well. In a Facebook post, Hamburger Mary’s owner wrote “I am sad that we will be losing one of the most talented, and more importantly one of the nicest people I have ever met.”
