Drag as a performance art is still at a super nascent stage in India, where homosexuality—despite gay sex being decriminalised last year —is still met with ridicule, ostracisation, confusion and contempt. Within this space, it still struggles to be understood in terms of not just what the form means—the closest resemblance to drag in Indian culture is men performing as women in Indian theatre where patriarchy traditionally denied women the stage—but also what it symbolises in a predominantly heteronormative society. But what happens when the queens who shake up the boundaries of gender and sexuality everyday with their persona and performances, decide to experience love, sex and relationships? And this oppression is rampant within the queer community, too. So this week, we reached out to some queens to ask them: Is dating as a queen more difficult than we can ever imagine?

Meatball , a Los Angeles—based drag performer and former Dragula season one contestant, said she gets plenty of sexual attention online and on the job. Before she met her current partner, Meatball remembers hiding her social media accounts from potential dates because she was worried that her drag career might be a turnoff. Femme-presenting queer people and drag performers often experience stigma, intolerance, and exclusion from queer nightlife communities and dating scenes that uphold " no fats, no femmes " policies. This stigma once kept Monsoon from exploring their non-binary gender identity.
