    1. I Transsexual is a person who knows that they are/were born in the wrong body and they will begin HRT (hormone Replacement Therapy) to begin the process to change their outside (body) to match their inside (being, essence, life force, soul). If they have the money they will under go GRS (Gender Reassignment Surgery).
      A Drag Queen is a person (usually male) who mimics (usually on stage) a woman but that is as far as it goes. Some Drag Queens are gay but many are straight.

  2. You need to check your facts hun! Agree with above post, there is a difference between a drag performer and a transexual. This article should anger a lot of people because you obviously don't know the difference. Not to mention Candis Cayne is a television star and is a transgendered person. Most of the people you have chosen on this list are at the top of their game in the drag performance world and they are not transgendered. Learn the difference!!!!
