Drag Queen

A drag queen is a performer, typically male or assigned male at birth, who adopts a hyperbolic and exaggerated feminine persona for the purpose of entertainment and self-expression. Drag queens often dress in extravagant and glamorous clothing, including elaborate makeup, wigs, and costumes, to create a larger-than-life female presentation.

Drag queens typically perform in various venues such as nightclubs, bars, cabarets, or drag shows. Their performances can include lip-syncing to popular songs, comedic acts, dance routines, or theatrical performances. Drag queens often use their performances to challenge and subvert traditional gender norms, expressing creativity, artistry, and individuality.

It's important to note that drag queens may identify as gay, queer, or any other sexual orientation or gender identity. While drag performance is often associated with the LGBTQ+ community, not all drag queens are gay or transgender. Drag is a form of artistic expression and entertainment, and individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities may participate in drag performance.
