Drag king refers to a woman who uses men’s clothing and make-up with comical, satirical, or dramatic intentions for performances. Their intention is not to imitate men, nor do they necessarily have a specific sexual orientation. Drag kings usually represent characters who are hyper-masculine as satire. The term also includes men who decide to perform this practice.

The goal of drag kings is to entertain. However, they often expose predetermined masculinities or marginalized masculinities to shed light on them and fight against established roles.
