A '''drag queen''' is a person who usually dresses in hyper-feminized or gender non-conforming clothing, and often acts with exaggerated [[femininity]] and in feminine [[gender role]]s for the purpose of entertainment. Often, they will exaggerate certain characteristics such as make-up and eyelashes for comic, dramatic, or satirical effect. While drag is very much associated with [[gay]] men and [[gay culture]], there are drag artists of all [[Human sexuality|sexualities]]. There are many kinds of drag artists and they vary greatly in dedication, from professionals who have starred in films to people who just try it once, or those who simply prefer clothing and makeup that is usually worn by the opposite sex in their culture. Drag queens can vary widely by class and culture. Other drag performers include [[drag king]]s, women who perform in male roles and attire; [[faux queen]]s, 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.
