The examination of drag is vital to understanding camp and what it is, and what it is not. In a Refinery29 article, it says, "Even in drag, it’s still a spectrum. There are camp queens — that’s a subcategory of drag — but even glamour queens are still camp, because it’s still an aesthetic that’s embracing this over-the-top version of femininity that isn’t truly grounded in what actual women are like.”
In such examples, the words, and thereby the physical act of expression (i.e. camp), is not just what you say, but rather an anthropological case study that's severely overlooked. Erique Zhang, a PhD student whose research focuses on fashion and beauty cultures of queer and trans people of color, told Refinery29, "There’s something going on when these cultural references are used. We're losing that memory, because people think it’s just a fun thing to say, but it’s actually rooted in a history of resistance forms of cultural production."
