Drag queens are generally not cross dressers. And the terms are not synonymous. Drag queens are female impersonators and performers. Crossdressers wear clothing of the opposite sex during their everyday lives. As opposed to drag queens who don’t usually wear women’s clothing outside of performing. That’s a very skimmed down version. But maybe do more research! Thanks 🙂
