Definition - What does Drag King mean?

A drag king refers to a woman that dresses specifically in masculine attire with the goal of physically expressing male gender norms or stereotypes as part of a performance. It is the female version of a drag queen.

Kinkly explains Drag King

The term drag king has been used since the 1970s. It is much less common than the term drag queen. There is some speculation that the term is less used because the phenomenon is much more common than men in women's clothes. To dress in drag is to wear the clothes socially associated with the opposite gender. This practice is more common for women. Drag king is sometimes used to describe a masculine dressed lesbian or bisexual female. The term most often refers to performance artists. Ususally a drag king is said to personify male gender stereotypes.
