Performer Murray Hill: ‘Why can’t you just call me a comedian?’

Murray Hill Derek de Koff

I am much more than a drag king. I really hammered the press about this and I finally got to a point where I think when people assume that somebody is queer, or different, or trans, they always want to put something before their name. And that is what drag king has been. Why can’t you just call me a comedian like Jerry Seinfeld is called a comedian?”

— Murray Hill, who’s profiled this week in an excellent article by The Guardian
