Drag Race royalty Bimini Bon Boulash pleads with JK Rowling to be ‘accepting and loving’
The British author has been vocal about her worries about giving trans women access to spaces such as female changing rooms and “the huge explosion in young women wishing to transition”.
Speaking about JK Rowling’s comments in a new interview, Bimini Bon Boulash stated that the author needs to “show a bit more love” when it comes to her views about trans people.
The 28-year-old, who identifies as non-binary, told Metro: “I think we just need to be accepting and loving of people. Everyone has different experiences.
“Everyone has a different view of life and perspectives, and what we need to do is accept others that have a different perspective, even if it’s radically different to our own, instead of criticising and ostracising them.”
They added: “Because right now, trans people are being targeted. It’s hard enough for them going through what they do. So [Rowling] just needs to show a bit more love.”
Bimini, who is a fan favourite from the second series of Drag Race UK, remains outspoken about ongoing trans issues after recently calling out the BBC for “pushing an anti-trans agenda”.
The broadcaster published a shocking article titled, “We’re being pressured into sex by some trans women“, in October 2021.
The article used a survey of just 80 people, conducted by the anti-trans pressure group Get The L Out, to claim that trans lesbians are routinely pressuring cis lesbians into sex.
The BBC later defended the story, claiming the article was about a “complex subject” and “went through [its] rigorous editorial process” before being published, and “provides appropriate context”.
