Like…you must clearly be gaining your understanding of Drag Culture from RuPaul’s Drag race to even compare the “acceptance” (ie, the watering down and commercialization of Drag Culture) to Trans Awareness.
Literally, you cannot divorce the presence of Trans People and their influence on Drag Culture. TRANS PEOPLE ARE THE ENTIRE REASON DRAG CULTURE EXISTS!
If you’re understanding of Drag Culture is limited to reruns of RuPaul’s Drag Race and shitty drag shows at your College’s Diversity Fair, you really have no place commenting on Drag Culture.
