When the stars of DragSyndrome take to the stage audiences are delighted and nobody has more fun than the performers themselves.The world’s only drag troupe made up of drag queens and kings with Down’s Syndrome,this British group has thrilled fans all over the world with their ferocious flair and confident flaunting of gender identities.But not everyone agrees that they have the right to express themselves in this way.We go backstage and into the homes of the DragSyndrome stars to hear them demand the right to express themselves and lead their lives with the art, fun and love that they choose.
