“Best Sex” will be the lead track and is slated for release October2 – Peppermint states –“”Best Sex” – a song for and about the fuqbois and my addiction to them. “As much as I hate to admit it,the best distraction from the search for love is good sex.””
A Girl Like Me: Letters To My Lovers also features a gorgeous cover of the Carole King classic, “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.” “Obviously, I’m a Carole King fan. I love the lyrics, which I think are incredibly relatable in queer relationships and encounters as well as casual moments that may or may not turn into something more. The possibility of a relationship is usually inhibited by social stigma and fear of being seen in public with a trans woman.” says Peppermint.
Peppermint’s star continues to rise thanks to her smashing success as the first out trans contestant to be cast on RuPaul’s Drag Race (Season 9) where she finished as runner-up in one of the series’ most-talked-about finales Click HERE. Soon after, her talent led her to become the first trans woman to originate a principal musical role (Pythio) on Broadway in the hit Head Over Heels.
In addition, Peppermint recently reunited the Broadway cast of Head Over Heels to perform a medley of Go Go’s hits to help raise funds for the Ali Forney Center which benefits the nation’s largest homeless LGBTQ organization.
