Famous female impersonators are often known for their outlandish, funny drag queen names, and you can't go to Vegas without seeing a drag show. Who are the greatest drag queens? Many well-known drag performers, such as RuPaul, have reached the heights of celebrity through appearances in television and in some of the top LGBT movies of all time. And as you'll see from this list of drag queens, dressing up like a woman is nothing new.

Make sure to vote for your favorite drag queens and vote down the ones you know are trash for all the wrong reasons.
