I Want To Be a Drag Queen When I Grow Up

From Mail Online, 'He gets bullied but he's determined to be a performer': Proud mother tells of 14-year-old son's drag queen ambitions

Here is the rest of the story about a British teen's desire to trip the light fantastic in sequins, heels, and big hair.

I never uttered those thoughts when I was growing up, but I dreamed about taking the train into The City and apprenticing with a troupe of female impersonators.

At the time, I thought that my vocation would not sit well with my family, so I it remained a dream. However, in retrospect, I think my Mom would have been as supportive as the mother of Tom/Tamara. And my Mom was a great seamstress; ooh --- the fabulous outfits she would have created for me!

And so it goes (or so it went).


  1. When as a child I was asked what do you want to do when you grow up I always seemed to know that "A Woman" was not the answer that was being looked for. Unfortunately for me Gardner didn't seem to be an acceptabe answer either

  2. Back then ~ in the 1960s ~ we only sung that "The Times are A Changing". Things have changed quite a bit over the past half century. Today's young femulators can 'stand on the shoulders of giants'.
    Just keep up doing what you do.

  3. Hi, Stana!

    I am a crossdresser and would like to take a course in makeup over the Internet. I already have some experience in the subject. I wanted to improve. So, I wanted a distance learning course through pictures of my results. I have good books, but still could not get those beautiful eyes that are possible to do. Do you know any online course self makeup? Oh, I love makeup! Kisses! And congratulations for the beautiful site!
