** Mr. 2 Bon Clay of Baroque Works is a drag queen. He wears a ballerina outfit, doesn't have a female partner, and for Pete's sake, his style of karate is Okama Kenpo, which translates as Crossdresser Fist! Interestingly, he eventually proves himself to be roughly the manliest BadAss in the series.

* '''Camp Queens''' are your stereotypical caricatures of female fashion. This is where you get the UncannyValleyMakeup, outrageous costumes, GagBoobs, etc. Many are comedic, though not always.
* '''Fishy Queens''', also known as "Female Illusionists", are much more subdued in presentation, and are so named because of their ability to pass as a biological female. Fishy queens often compete in [[BeautyContest drag pageants]], model high fashion, and/or work as {{celebrity impersonator}}s. As for the origin of that term...we'll let you figure that out for yourself.
* '''Genderfuck Queens''' blend male and female elements to completely fuck what we know as gender. [[GirlsWithMustaches Bearded ladies]], BaldWomen, toplessness (since they're still men and can bare their nipples), masculine attire with feminine makeup, etc. Androgyny is their game.

Unlike {{Transsexual}}s and {{Crossdresser}}s, drag queens wear women's clothing only on special occasions. They are usually gay men who occasionally like to get that little bit more flamboyant by dressing up as a tornado that's just rushed through a mountain of candyfloss and glitter. They can get dolled up for a variety of reasons; perhaps they are paid entertainers and the drag is part of their act, perhaps they consider it an art form; or perhaps they just enjoy it. It differs from person to person.

Drag queens on TV are usually sharp-tongued and witty, matching the stage personas of real-life professional stage performers. They may provide the main character with world-weary advice or help put forward (ironically) a "just be yourself" [[AnAesop Aesop]].

A few drag performers also happen to be [[{{Transsexual}} transgender]], but one doesn't indicate the other. Those who are will still ham it up in their performances. Opinions vary as to whether or not trans women should count as drag queens (some drag pageants ban them if they've had hormone therapy or surgery), but as ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'' contestant Monica Beverly Hillz put it, "Trans is who I am, drag is what I do." However, many queens who aren't trans may still identify as genderqueer or agender, so one shouldn't assume it's either-or.
