But do you know who he is, what he represents, and where to find him?
I went to my first drag show when I was 18 years old in I had no idea that this world even existed! A beautiful soul named Chivonne Street Drag Queen took the stage and had me in absolute awe. She was beautiful, she was enigmatic, and she was a Drag Queen. I thought to myself, this is it! Being a Drag King, to me, is being fierce in a character that represents the male persona and exaggerating its strongest accents through performance, makeup, and costuming no matter the pronouns. I would definitely say as Jamie, I am somewhere between stud and butch.
More stud to be honest. Spikey, however, is a Drag King. Costume de, makeup, airbrushing, song mixing, and pre show. Pre show is generally two hour prep time for a six minute performance. I think that people are more responsive to drag queens because it has become more mainstream. The people in charge of booking events sometimes forget that variety is so important for the community in order to reach a wider audience.
Why not have a King, a Queen, and a Burlesque performer? I believe that we represent the art on a whole different spectrum that allows others to have a new taste for it.
We are shedding light on our perspective and interpretation of the male persona that sometimes others can relate to. From people with gender identity curiosity to people who just want to have a play with gender bending. For some, it even makes them question their sexuality. Whether its politics or the male ego, we are calling it out, making it sexy, or showing others that we just wear it on a whole new level which can be so intriguing. It makes a lot of men uneasy when their wife or girlfriend are at a show, and they want to take the Drag King home. As someone once said, empowering women empower women.
We need promoters, show directors, and venue owners to give Kings a chance to shine and treat the art like it is valid.
We need Queens to let us in, and to be treated as equals. We currently have a group called The Drag King Project. I came up with the idea in hopes that it would open doors and possibilities for Kings internationally. It is a networking outlet for Kings all over the world!
You can make connections with new venues, fans, new kings, mentors, king supporters, sponsors, share upcoming events and shows, discover well known AND new performers, share ideas, teach, and enlighten those who want to discover more about the art of being a Drag King. Through exposure, empowerment and inclusion, the king project hopes to ensure that the definition of drag includes all identities, all races, all ages, all bodies, and all artistic expressions.
Bullying, transphobia, sexism, and racism of any kind will absolutely not be tolerated. This Project was created to break the divide within the drag community and for performers to come together as a non-ego based collective. We believe that the time for drag equality is now. This project can be a platform for this social change with educational workshops, networking events and performance art.
