• Dorian T. Fisk

    Shanghai’s reigning drag king, Dorian T. Fisk, splits his time between China and Scotland.

     

    A concentrated dose of hyper-masculine drag with a tantalizing twist of burlesque,

    this award-winning, gender-blending performer serves up a heady cocktail of cheeky fun and sizzling sex appeal that will have you marinating in your own juices.

     

    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.

    He appears in Extravaganza, a queer film documentary about the Shanghai drag scene that took the 2019 independent festival circuit by storm.

     

    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 on the art of the male striptease and solo act development. 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 more info on upcoming workshops.

     

    Over the next few weeks, Dorian will be creating a web series which asks 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. New episodes released Sundays 8pm (GMT), scroll down to watch and find out more.

    #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...
