Minnie was abandoned as a baby and left in the doorway of Arq Nightclub. Thankfully, she was adopted and raised by drag queens who taught her everything about miming, glitter lipstick, platform heels and everything in between.
She is now the queen of Sydney’s premium club Arq, producing award-winning shows and driving Sydney’s partygoers wild with excitement. She has produced and choreographed many large-scale spectacles at events such as Mardi Gras and Sleaze Ball, and has worked with stars including Jimmy Barnes, Kylie Minogue, Tina Arena, David Atkins, Todd McKenney, Rhonda Burchmore and Australia’s most famous drag performer, Carlotta.
She has won more DIVA awards than just about anyone, including Entertainer of the Year 3 times, Sydney’s Favorite Drag Queen and Choreographer of the Year just to name a few. She is still working on winning Venue of the Year.
Minnie not only conceptualises, but also choreographs our Thursday night shows, as well as being a mentor to aspiring young talent through her Minnie Cooper's Drags To Riches annual contest for young talent. She also performs at Stonewall Hotel and The Midnight Shift.
