It seems the drag queens always get the crowning glory of media coverage and shows of their own. I'm only surprised that much more of the LGBTQ doesn't embrace the Drag King more. I mean, when was the last time you heard someone say, "Oh, we're going to a drag king show tonight."? I also don't personally know many people who could name drag kings like they could drag queens, with exception to Landon Cider and the fabulous and incomparable, mister showbiz himself, Murray Hill. So, this is my list of drag kings to know and start with, and the ones I feel are challenging gender perspectives. And shows of hilarity.
Adam All leans heavily on the "geek chic" influences. A sharp suit in pink or a bowtie in lime green with Ray Ban style glasses to match. The accessories as well as sequins and glitter are essential. Adam can charm and alarm with equal appeal, l but is not the sharpest tool in the box. Adam spent his former life working as a decorator and carpenter on male dominated building sites and his character is developed from observation and combined with his own thoughts on masculinity. Adam likes to perform, even when inappropriate, one can tell he likes to explore gender dynamics. Kingspirations for Adam are Vesta Tilly, Storme De Larverie and Landon Cider.
Sammy identifies as a trans non-binary bear cub. He can flirt in between being non-binary and being a trans man. Gender is fluid and his gender identity he feels is constantly changing everyday. And Sammy's style? He is a stocky, furry bear cub. He'll rock a snapback, floral shirt, jeans and silver shoes. Or sometimes a top hat, a smart jacket and spats. Sammy is sassy, sexy and surreal. He loves dancing and throwing himself all over a stage. If he doesn't leave the stage in a heaping pile of sweat, he feels he hasn't done his job properly. He is a mixed bag. He is a Vlogger, has a You Tube full of sketches, comic rants, and just a few of his own original silly songs.
