Part-time drag queen ๐Ÿ’…
Full-time content queen โœŒ๏ธ

Hello, my name is Bronwyn (it's Welsh, pronounced "Bron+win") ๐Ÿ˜Š
Most people know me as the drag queen and Sink The Pink performer, Fanny Minka! ๐Ÿ’…
Hence the name: Minka Guides ๐ŸŒŸ

I created Minka Guides to showcase what I call 'fabulous travel': encompassing the fun, stylish and quirky highlights of every destination I visit. I also place inclusivity at the heart of everything I do, ensuring my content is particularly useful to LGBT+, vegan, gluten-free, solo, and budget-minded travellers.

I'm lucky to have amazing friends spread around the planet who also contribute their recommendations for the cities they live in and places they've visited. So all my travel maps feature hand-picked recommendations from myself and my friends. This helps to make Minka Guides extra fabulous!

I started travel blogging in 2015 and I'm always keen to make new connections. You can use my Contact page to say hi or to read interviews with me or arrange a collaboration try myย Work With Me page.

Thanks for visiting Minka Guides and I hope your year is filled with fabulous adventures! โœŒ๏ธ

Is it ok for me to identify as skoliosexual?

Why I’m enjoying dating during a pandemic

When we first went into lockdown, I thought we’d all come bursting out of it with nothing short of complete debauchery. Flash forward five months and I’m just happy if someone feels comfortable to hold my hand. Dating during a…
