Welcome to Minka Guides – a travel and lifestyle blog for anyone who likes to explore beyond the norm.

As a queer, polyamorous and gluten-intolerant woman nearly in her 40s, I understand what it’s like to not feel seen in the usual travel and relationship guides. So, I place inclusivity at the heart of everything I write. I’m also a drag queen, which means I really know how to have a whole lot of outrageous fun!

Books, podcasts, yoga, cycling, colour, disco music, cocktails, intersectional feminism, festivals, platform boots, activism and naturism are big passion points for me too.

All these elements come together on Minka Guides, with queer travel and alternative relationship advice plus my favourite book reviews.

So, if you’re a little bit fabulous and ready for some big adventures, then let me – Fanny Minka – be your guide.
