Tristan, the drag king
There were a few drag queens at the Charlottesville Pride Festival, but I saw only one drag king, Tristan Swagger. I know nothing about drag performers — the Pride Festival was the first time I had ever seen a drag show — but I would imagine that the drag queens, with all of their highly stylized make-up, glitter costumes, and perilously high heels, tend to get more attention than the drag kings. Tristan had enough personality to make up for the lack of sparkly stuff, though, and true to his name, he had a heck of a lot of swagger.
