#3 of the series. The Queen. The very demanding, flamboyant, abusive, Queen.

Can a Queen be a Princess too?

The Queen. Here's a thought. Can a Queen be a princess too?
In the gay community, a Queen is not necessarily an effeminate man. He is an exaggerated effeminate man. This is someone that is very demanding, flamboyant, angry, abusive, controlling and overall a Queen.
When you write this character, you must focus not only on his demanding demeanor, but also of what got him there. This character had some very strong emotional trauma in their life. Something happened to him as a child and he is retaliating against the world through excessive Alpha traits through a feminine role. In order to make his point across he calls everyone a "she," or a "her" to de-motivate, defuse, and above all to humiliate his fellow man.
This character would be a good lead in a self-discovery mission. One that forgives his past in order to be a healthy gay man in the future. As a character, you can see him deflate the ego and anger and become a real person with real feelings. He starts calling people by their proper gender roles.
You can be safe in exaggerating this characters demeanor. Make him very explosive, over sensitive, hypersexual, and downright mean and lonely. His lover is more than likely very submissive and subdued. That is if he has a lover to begin with.
Don't confuse a Queen with a Drama Queen, a Flaming Queen, or a Drag Queen. Yes, the Queen is probably an embodiment of most of these other characters. Nonetheless, a Queen is meaner than and not as friendly as the above mentioned. She's (he's) just mean.
