A drag queen is a man
who dresses, and usually acts, like a caricature woman an image of an
ornate individual often for the purpose of entertaining. There are many
kinds of drag
artists in different specialties and they vary greatly, from a common
comic who does perform in pageants and parties and professionals who
have starred in
films to people who just try it once.
Drag queens also vary by class and
culture and can vary even within the same city. Although many drag
queens are gay men, there are drag artists of all genders and sexualities who do drag
for various reasons or purposes.
Women who dress like men for the same
purpose are known as DRAG KINGS
Generally, however drag queens are males who dress in a female gender role
often exaggerating certain characteristics
(such as make-up and
eyelashes) its like more lashes , feathers more sequence and glitters for comic, dramatic or satirical effect.
in other words DRAG doesn't know the word minimal not in their
vocabulary. They are a display of over the top and to the Maximum height
specially when it comes their Costumes to their Customized wigs.
performers include drag Kings , who are women who perform in male roles, FAUX KINGS
who are women who dress in an exaggerated style to emulate drag queens
and faux kings, who are men who dress to impersonate drag kings.
SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

to details and a good DRAG queen should posses this quality talking
about Science ... a DRAG QUEEN should master the Human anatomy specially
on facial and body structuring on where to highlight and contour and
where to stretch and tuck ,,, you what i mean ... lols ...and some
really consider cosmetic surgery like , nose jobs .. cheek and lips
enhancements and etc. but not all DRAG QUEENS are considered
Transgender, that's a different topic.
with the advancement of Technology ...we consider as well new trends and new approaches like using prosthetics
