Michael Jackson London, Aug 22 (IANS) A 12-year-old boy who slipped into his mum’s tight pink dress and donned a blonde wig and towering heels during a carnival has been crowned the drag queen of his village, a media report said Monday.

He clinched the “Naughty Nora” title against tough competition from local men by belting out camp versions of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Dolly Parton hits.

Redvers Stokes, who is also a keen showjumper, began wearing his mother’s clothes when he was small. Now he attends village events in full drag costume and make-up, The Sun reported.

The tiny village of Sticker started its drag queen contest two years ago - because not enough girls among the population of around 1,000 were competing to be carnival queen, the newspaper said.

“I’ve always been open to new things. I might like dressing up in women’s clothes but I still like girls. It’s just a little hobby of mine,” Stokes said.

“His Naughty Nora routine is very convincing. I’ve never been concerned. Redvers just loves being the centre of attention. He has no plans to make it a career,” The Sun quoted his mum as saying.
