For drag king Percy Non Grata, the stage isn’t just where he loves performing and doing “ridiculous” things, it’s also where he found a “beautiful” community and a place the trans artist now calls “home”. At its core, drag is a creative act that showcases the fluidity of gender and is a powerful and personal form of expression for performers like Percy. Drag gave Percy the power to push boundaries, find community and further embody his authenticity as a trans person. In June, the London-based king posted a TikTok of a campy-but-tragic funeral for Remy, the rat from the Disney-Pixar film Ratatouille. The video, which now has over 1.1 million views, sees Percy – dressed as garbage boy turned faux chef Alfredo Linguini – honour his late friend with a touching performance to Celine Dion’s hit song “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now”.
