drag queens are not transgender women. drag is based off the man in a dress trope and is inherently transphobic. drag is a performance, not a gender identity. transgender women are not drag queens.
sorry to burst your bubble by telling you you’re wrong but… you’re wrong. drag shaped the lgbt community from the beginning and isn’t based off of transphobia. maybe you need to do some digging into lgbt history. you can be a trans woman and a drag queen at the same time, because drag is a form of art. most of the people who do drag are a form of nonbinary or trans women. some trans men do drag, cis women can do drag, it’s art.
take violet chachki for example, identifies as nonbinary and uses any pronouns, jinkx monsoon, nonbinary (uses they/them), jiggly caliente, trans woman, adore delano, genderfluid + countless others who still do drag and identify as drag queens.
peppermint self identifies as a trans woman who is also a drag queen. you’d know that if you watched drag race which i doubt you do based on how uninformed you are. she came into the competition out as a trans woman who is proud to be a trans woman and a drag queen and blur the lines and mix the two. if you don’t like that, take it up with her on her twitter @/peppermint247, not me.
