WATCH: TeTe Bang talks being a bio queen and the London drag scene

TeTe Bang is a bio-queen

TeTe Bang is here to tear the rule book of drag up.

Women who dress up as drag queens are labelled ‘faux’ or ‘bio queens’.

We met TeTe Bang, a London-based bio queen, in her drag lab for a chat.

She originally began on the burlesque scene and before she knew it was swallowed up by the drag scene too.

There isn’t much that she can’t do either. She DJs and she makes her own clothes. As well as drag, she can do burlesque or cabraret.

‘Somewhere between female and fabulous’

In her interview, she explains that drag was something she originally got into as a hobby but ‘five years later and you’re drowning in wigs.’

She said: ‘The way you present yourself is not about what’s between your legs anymore. It’s about whether you’re fabulous or not.’

TeTe also talked about the responses she gets to her drag and how the London scene has had no choice but to embrace her.
