What is known about the drag show?
It is a form of entertainment performed by drag artists portraying women or men. When wearing clothes associated with the female gender, drag queens often use the exaggeration of certain features for grotesque, dramatic or satirical effect. The main difference between a drag queen and a crossdresser is that the purpose of dressing up is to entertain the viewer. In the case of dressing female performers in men's clothes for the same purpose, they are called drag kings.
