RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Bimini Bon Boulash has dropped their debut single, an iconic and punky non-binary anthem titled “God Save This Queen”.

It’s been almost three months since the dramatic RuPaul’s Drag Race UK series two finale which shocked the nation, when Bimini Bon Boulash, an early fan-favourite, lost out on the crown to Scottish queen Lawrence Chaney.

But Bimini shows no sign of slowing down, signing a top modelling contract, using their platform to advocate for trans rights, and now dropping their first single and music video.

Drag Race UK fans got a taste of Bimini’s musical talent during the series, when they came out with their “gender bender, cis-tem offender” verse in the iconic bop “UK Hun”.

“God Save This Queen” tackles issues of class, anti-LGBT+ hate, and living their best “gender-free” life.

The song, co-written by Billie Blonde and Redshank, features lyrics like: “Fragile masculinity won’t get you very far / Throughout all of history it’s left too many scars / Give the freedom to the people to be who they really are.”

Of course, Bimini Bon Boulash couldn’t help including references to veganism, and sings in the chorus: “Sipping up on my builder’s tea / Milk, two sugars but dairy-free / Turn me into your favourite meme / I don’t eat meat but I do love me some D.”

Speaking to Gay Times, they said: “It’s very nostalgic with the sounds that I grew up with in the 90s and 00s, Britpop, and I wanted to bring that back a bit.”

“I’m very proud of ‘God Save This Queen’ because it feels therapeutic,” Bimini added.

“It’s putting my fingers back up to the people that made me feel like s**t.

“I’m very proud of who I am now and where I’m at, and I wanted it to be for young queer kids to hear and think that those experiences they’ve been through, they can laugh and put their fingers up at those people.

“Jokes on them because we’re all great and they’re the ones with the issue. They’re the ones who need to sort it out.”
