Ginger Johnson Biography – Ginger Johnson Wiki
Ginger Johnson is a drag queen and contestant on the fifth series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK on BBC Three. The 34-year-old, who uses the pronouns she/her in drag and he/him out of drag, is from County Durham. She describes her drag as “Well-seasoned but not salty!”
Speaking about how she got into drag, she said: “I’ve been doing drag for about 15 years now. I wrote a radio play as part of my university degree that was based on an older woman from the Northeast, and I couldn’t find anyone to play the part so I did it and then my drag career just snowballed from there! The theatre is where I love to be. I write and direct theatre shows too and I absolutely adore it.”
Quizzed on what people can expect from a Ginger Johnson show, she said: “Well you wouldn’t get a refund! I love to create a fun space, so you will get songs, sequins, silly stories, and maybe a little bit of sausage meat in your hair. In my drag, I like to take quite serious subjects and present them in a really ridiculous way because I think that open up the audience to think and talk about their experience.”
County Durham’s Ginger Johnson teamed up with Love Island star Chris Taylor to launch an online breakfast show Wakey during lockdown with Denise Welch as one of her guests.
