Drag Kings (also called male impersonators) are individuals who cross dress in masculine clothing, typically personifying male stereotype, in order to perform and entertain others. Drag Kings are associated with lesbian culture, particularly butches, although not all Drag Kings consider themselves homosexual.

Drag Kings were once considered an example of transmasculinity, and since the creation of a wider vocabulary surrounding gender some Drag Kings may now identify as trans men, genderqueer and/or non-binary.

The feminine equivalent of Drag Kings are Drag Queens.
