Cos'è il trascinamento?

Il drag è l'arte usata come espressione di sé e una celebrazione della stranezza.


Il trascinamento è una forma d'arte che piega il genere in cui una persona si veste con abiti e trucco pensati per esagerare una specifica identità di genere.


Lo scopo principale di Drag è stato per spettacoli dal vivo e intrattenimento. È anche usato come espressione di sé e una celebrazione della stranezza. Un tipico spettacolo di drag includerà la sincronizzazione labiale o la danza, e gli artisti spesso hanno trucco, capelli e costumi elaborati.
