Ginger Minj is back on the pageant circuit.
It was announced this week that the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 and All Stars 2 contestant has joined Jennifer Aniston in the new film, Dumplin’.
Based on the 2015 YA novel of the same name, Dumplin follows Willowdean, a plus-sized teen who is full of confidence and spirit, and enters a local beauty pageant to win over the boy she likes and to enrage her mother (Aniston), who is a pageant queen, herself.
When Willowdean enters the contest she inspires a group of teenage outcasts to find their inner strength and join the pageant too.
Are we the only ones getting serious Hairspray vibes from this?
Dove Cameron and Maddie Baillio from NBC’s Hairspray Live will also be starring in the film, along with Georgie Flores and Danielle Macdonald.

Ginger has been busy since her time All Stars 2 last year. She released her debut album, Sweet T, and she will be hitting the road this fall for a tour of live shows. The Crossdesser for Christ also appeared on an episode of @midnight with Chris Hardwick, earlier this summer.
Dumplin’ will film in Atlanta, and there is currently no release date, but you can probably plan on seeing Ginger Minj at your local cineplex sometime in 2018.
