The Manifesto


Pecs is an all-singing & all-dancing drag king collective. 


We’re a group of artists united by a firm belief in the gender binary. 


Just kidding! Fuck that shit and the patriarchy too. We actually believe that gender is performative, that there is no sword mightier than the satirical pen and that dressing up is fun. So we make binary-bending burlesque and perform our vaudevillian variety shows in drag.


We do this because we're feminists. But we also do this because we look pretty darn sexy as men, and we really like queer womxn.


We aim to tease, to please and to bring you to your knees.

We are Pecs. 


You're welcome.


I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king.
