BBC Now Promoting Show About Drag Queens With Down Syndrome

This week, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) showcased folks with Down syndrome dressing and performing in full drag.

“Meet Drag Syndrome – the outspoken performers with Down’s syndrome who are creating a stir on the drag scene,” the BBC captioned a four-minute video. “These drag queens and kings were brought together in 2018 by choreographer Daniel Vais, to provide a platform for performers with learning disabilities and to challenge stereotypes.”

“They have received criticism along the way, but with a performance at Glastonbury coming up, could they be about to hit the big time?” the public broadcaster posed. . .

In October, NBC News similarly showcased “Drag Syndrome.” The network highlighted performances by the group’s members at a popular gay venue called Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

“Then, without warning, the steady electronic beat of the music shifts to a more familiar Divine track, and out pops a drag queen dressed to the nines in a skin-tight catsuit, draped with purple sequins, and a blond wig to top it all off,” reported NBC.
