The Down's syndrome troupe stirring up the drag scene

Meet Drag Syndrome - the outspoken performers with Down's syndrome who are creating a stir on the drag scene.

These drag queens and kings were brought together in 2018 by choreographer Daniel Vais, to provide a platform for performers with learning disabilities and to challenge stereotypes.

They have received criticism along the way, but with a performance at Glastonbury coming up, could they be about to hit the big time?

A video by Richard Kenny, Niamh Hughes and Natasha Lipman. For more videos and podcasts like this, visit BBC Ouch.

Drag Syndrome were performing at unDISTURBED, part of the Royal Albert Hall's Young Producer's Scheme.
