Mimi Imfurst is a hard-working entertainer and an amazingly-talented drag queen. Although she didn’t get the best edit during her run on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3 and RuPaul‘s All Stars Drag Race, she didn’t let that fire burn her. Instead, she turned those challenges into a lessons and became a stronger person because of them. These trials, along with others challenges she has overcome, inspired the title of her debut, full-length album, The Fire.

“I’ve been tested by the universe so many times in my life and I refuse to back down,” Mimi shared.

When she was a teen, Mimi was kicked out of her home after she was out-ed to her family by a school employee. “One never truly gets over the experience of having to beg for food, a place to stay, a shower, clean clothes,” Mimi revealed, “I remember longing for someone with an ear willing to listen and a heart to understand what I was going through. Being homeless and LGBTQ was the very first fire I had to walk though.”

The first single released off the album is the title track, “The Fire,” which is a gritty anthem “for anyone who has ever been through hell and back.” Watch the full music video below and pick up a copy of Mimi’s album to hear all 10 inspiration tracks.

Deodorant Ad Perfectly Nails What’s Wrong With The Trans Bathroom Debate

by Dan Tracer October 26, 2016

Leave it to a deodorant company to get what so many elected officials in this country can’t quite wrap their heads around — that there is no “one way” to express gender. And while right wing politicians and talking heads spend no shortage of time obsessing over how they, and most importantly their pure and [...]
