There are many heterosexual men who "drag up" to play characters. One such man is Barry Humphries, who appears as TV presenter Dame Edna Everage in both the United Kingdom and Australia. They're generally included with drag queens if the character forms the basis of their act, though some might argue a distinction between comedic crossdressers who perform for general audiences, and drag queens who cater to queer culture.

* A Pokemon in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' seems to be a parody of this, which is somewhat fitting for a game named after sex chromosomes. The pink PlagueDoctor bird Pokemon Spritzee's evolved form, Aromatisse, resembles Divine, maybe as a ShoutOut to the Creator/JohnWaters film ''Film/PinkFlamingos''.

The [[DistaffCounterpart Distaff (ahem) Counterpart]] is the Drag King -- a woman dressed as a man performing masculinity with levels of exaggeration similar to a Drag Queen, but primarily for lesbian audiences. They'll bind their breasts (PetitePride if necessary]]), pencil in or glue on a beard, and either keep their hair short or cover it under a hat. And then stuff a sock in their pants. Kings tend to go for either a dapper, thuggish, rocker, or biker persona.
