Ginger Minj has thanked her fans for their love and support following last week's grand finale to RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6, which saw Kylie Sonique Love take home the crown and enter the Drag Race Hall of Fame.
Posting on social media Ginger also teased an upcoming project, promising more details in the very near future.
The All Stars 6 finale saw Ginger and Kylie go up against Eureka! and Ra’jah O’Hara.
“I appreciate all the love”
Posting on Twitter following the finale Ginger said: “I appreciate all the love and wanting to send me a tip to show support.”
She added, “I will be making an exciting announcement this weekend for a fun project everyone can donate to!”

The All Star (as she will always be) also said in an earlier tweet that there was so much she wanted to say but that she was leaving it at “THANK YOU!!!” for now.
In the finale, the four remaining queens wrote and recorded their own verses for RuPaul’s new song ‘This Is Our Country', which featured US country legend, Tanya Tucker.
Following the performance and the runway (category is: All Star Hall of Fame eleganza extravaganza) RuPaul asked all four queens to lip sync individually to Lady Gaga’s ‘Stupid Love’. All four queens put in varied performances with Kylie managing to turn a slip on the runway into a roll as if it was all part of the plan!
But in the end, there can only be one winner (despite that time RuPaul crowned Monet X Change and Trinity The Tuck winners of All Stars 4) and the prize went to Kylie, who’s made herstory as the first transwoman to win the US show and the second in any Drag Race franchise after Angele Anang won Drag Race Thailand in 2019!
Congratulations Kylie! And congrats to all the queens for making it to the finale!
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 is available to stream on Netflix now.
