YASSSS MISS PEPPERMINT!!! This girl has been killin’ the game FOREVAAH!!! Any REAL drag fan has seen the queen of the NYC scene slaying the clubs, long before she snatched the runner-up position on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 10. WOWlebrity Mx Qwerrrk caught up with the super sweet sensation, and had a lil’ gurrrl talk about her celebrity crushes, best girl groups EVAH, and her herstory-making as the first trans woman to create a principal role on Broadway, with the debut of the Gwyneth Paltrow-produced, Go-Go’s musical Head Over Heels, coming this Summer (previews June 23).
Check out the full interview from QwerrrkOut below…and the SO FAB premiere of Cazwell & Peppermint’s video Harlem Cleopatra (single available on iTunes). AND…If you’re in Los Angeles May 11th, 12th & 13th, make sure you visit Peppermint’s booth (#2115) at RuPaul’s DragCon, at the LA Convention Center. (above pic by Wilson Models)

When I was younger I stuck out like a sore thumb, from playing at recess to being captain of the cheerleading squad. From school musicals to dating men who didn't understand their attraction to me while holding my hand walking down the street. From to moments of Triumph like RuPaul's Drag Race and now this mammoth moment before me on preparing a role on Broadway. At times I have been obvious at times I've been a target and at other times I have tried to be brave and stand up. A few times I've even been called a pioneer. Even though it hasn't always been easy today I'm thankful for the opportunities I've had to be visible and I'm even more thankful to be seen. #transgenderdayofvisibility #tdov #transQueen #woman
