“Drag Queen” Hits The Streets To Expose The Relentless Stares & Harassment

YouTube channel NadaOriginal has given us their take on the viral ’10 Hours Walking in NYC as a Woman’ video, giving us a small glimpse into what it’s like to walk down the streets of Los Angeles as a man dressed in drag.

According to Dragaholic:

The funny and playful video depicts a fully-bearded “drag queen” with unshaven legs. While this style has become a growing trend, the character in this video doesn’t represent the majority of drag queens who do remove these masculine features. Additionally, many drag queens will heckle people back if they talk to them on the streets, often joking and using sarcasm to make the situation fun and playful. Nevertheless, this video does bring up some of the security issues drag queen (and transgender women) face while walking around the streets.
