ABC Taxis | Norfolk’s own Bimini Bon Boulash is the People’s Champion
Thursday night, the nation was glued to the screen to watch the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Among the finalists was our very own Bimini Bon Boulash whose roots show proudly in their first episode Canaries runaway look.
The crown went to Scottish firecracker Laurence Cheney, whose stunning wit was a sensation from the start. Although everyone, Queens included, agrees that their win was well deserved, non-binary beauty Bimini Bon Boulash will always be the winner in our hearts. Several fans and former contestants of the show took to Twitter to express their love for Norfolk’s own drag superstar.
The talented 27-year-old’s been on a real journey, going from narrowly escaping elimination in the first week to become a force to be reckoned. Many viewers have noted their complete transformation after lockdown forced the filming of the show to be put on hold. Their verse on chart hit ‘UK, Hun?’ brought a punky grit to the Eurovision style dance hit and their runaway looks were high-fashion wonders. Perhaps one of Bimini’s biggest highlights was their riotously funny Katie Price impression on the highly anticipated ‘Snatch Game.’
Norfolk and Bimini go way back. From attending Lynn Grove Academy in Great Yarmouth to lighting up Prince of Wales, Bimini Bon Boulash has been an electric presence. Who knows? With clubs set to open back up on the 21st of June, we might see Bimini’s spectacular homecoming this summer. On social media and interviews on print and screen, Bimini has promised us many exciting things to come. Already, they’ve been featured in several fashion editorials, morning news shows, radio appearances and even a cheeky chicken date with BBC3’s Amelia Dimoldenberg. Popular fashion mag British Vogue has taken a particular shining to her threads. Their girl-group The United Kingdolls are set to tour once the pandemic is over and tickets are already sold out. Bimini is fighting for a Norwich date to be added. Let’s hope she wins this one, as we’re raring to see her back on Prince of Wales. And for a ride as glamorous (and eco-conscious) as our Queen, ABC Taxis has got your back. With several amazing projects in the pipeline, the future looks Bimini bon Bright. Well done, Queen. You’ve done us proud.
