Britain’s youngest drag queen

Most children’s hobbies consist of playing football or belonging to the Brownies. But not flamboyant Redvers Stokes, who at the tender age of 12 has picked a slightly more unique pastime - slipping into his mum’s clothes to perform as a drag queen.

And the schoolboy, whose drag persona is Naughty Nora, is already showing great promise, as he has been crowned the country’s youngest drag queen.
Redvers, from Sticker, Cornwall, has been sporting slinky dresses and tottering about in high heels even before he went to primary school.

He said: ‘I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it; I think it’s really funny. ‘I might like dressing up in women’s clothes but I still like girls. It’s just a little hobby of mine.’

The colourful performer took his hobby to a competitive level when he entered the prestigious annual drag queen competition in his home village, competing with men three times his age.

He slipped on his mum Georgie’s tight pink slinky dress, a long, curly wig, and towering heels.
Glamorous Redvers, under the guise of Naughty Nora, took to the stage and enchanted judges with his face full of make-up. He belted out Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ and a string of Dolly Parton hits. The schoolboy was crowned Carnival Drag Queen to the shock of his farm worker parents, Georgie and Matthew, both 43, and hundreds of stunned locals.
