  • About dorian

    Shortly after his 2016 debut, Dorian became the first King to place in the 10 year history of Shanghai’s annual drag contest and in 2018, he soared to new heights as one of the top 3 drag performers in China. A Euro Drag S2 Scotland finalist, he now calls Glasgow home, and his creative and polished performances regularly get him booked at some of the hottest drag and alternative cabaret stages across the region. Want to stay up-to-date about where you can see Dorian performing?

    Cofounder of DKNSTRKT, a China-based collective of drag artists who host workshops for anyone to learn the art of drag, Dorian has also taught masterclasses at the Shanghai School of Burlesque. His drag king workshops have spawned several drag babies including the award-winning Mitch Bitchpleaser and Scotland's hottest drag king boi band, The Tackleberries. Scroll down for testimonials. Dorian is also behind Shut Up & King (@shutupandking on Instagram) - a new Glasgow-based platform for Scottish drag kings everywhere with plans in the works for more workshops as well as a regular drag king showcase.

     

    While under lockdown in Scotland, Dorian produced a web series which asked the question "Can the everyday person find in their immediate neighborhood, all the things it might take to be a home drag king in these times of isolation?" (SPOILER ALERT: All you need is a little bit of ingenuity). Created by Dorian as a way to stay creative (read: sane) between applying for benefits and job hunting, All Dragged Up & Nowhere To Go also offers tidbits, insights and a behind the scenes look at the life of an out of work drag performer with very little talent for much else. Scroll down to watch this 6 episode series which culminates in a spectacular final showdown.

    Episode 1: All Dragged Up & Nowhere To Go

    #CoroNoYouBetterDont

    ”Can the everyday person find in their immediate neighborhood, all the things it might take to be a home drag king in these times of isolation?" Dorian asks out of sheer desperation for something creative to do to take his mind of the fact that he's 14,567th in the queue to submit his benefits claim...

    It’s Funday the twelfteenth of Mayprilary and we are still under lockdown. In this episode, Dorian continues with the Home Drag King Experiment and things take a decidedly more delicious turn. He would also like to apologize for his drunk uncle gatecrashing the end of Episode 2! Luckily a less rambunctious visitor is expected to make an appearance this time, although he does like the occasional glass or two of red wine.. but let’s keep his identity shrouded in mystery for now ;)
