Charity Kase

We had a quick chat with London-based drag artist Charity Kase ahead of her upcoming appearance and this year's DragWorld! 

 

Q: You’ve gained quite a popularity on Instagram (@charitykase); how does it feel to be representing British drag on a level that gets international recognition?

A: It feels really rewarding, last year was a massive challenge for me and completing my 365 days is one of, if not, my biggest achievement yet. I'm delighted to be flying the flag for British queens.

 

Q: Where does the inspiration for your unique style of drag come from?

A: My looks are mostly inspired by fantasy, sci fi and horror television, film and literature. I've always been fascinated with the darker side of life and art and also with magic and mystery. When I was on a night out in Cha Cha boudoir in Manchester about 3 and half years back, I first saw Anna Phylactic perform frozen by Madonna and it took my breath away. She was haunting. I had never seen drag like that in real life and I was inspired to pull together my own looks.Since then I've developed a passion for turning myself into something unrecognisable.

 

Q: You’re well known for serving LEWKS, but can you pick a favourite one?

A: That’s a really hard question as there's so many to pick from! I really enjoy being a more sinister and scary character with minimum facial features and lots of blood. I am also still drawn back to my carrot top lady, day 125 from last year!
