The Flaming Queen is a very interesting character. Nothing to do with the Queen.

There's no drama about a Flaming Queen.

The Flaming Queen. This character is more flamboyant than and not as dramatic as a Drama Queen is. There's no drama about a Flaming Queen. This character exaggerates his effeminacy. Imagine a hyperactive woman. His hands are always up in the air, broken at the wrist and at the elbow. He not only sashays, he waggles when he walks as he takes long, purposeful steps.
This character is fun to write. He’s not only gay he's a Flaming Queen. A fun person to hang with in public. Nothing is boring or usual. Everything is fun, games and exciting. When he goes out to the clubs, he's full of surprises. New tight fitting clothes that are vibrant in color and fun to wear. Accessories are always present, such as neon sticks or other neon toys.
On the dance floor, he's probably the first one on the dance floor shaking his booty, and probably by himself. He knows the songs by heart and pretends to be a diva live on stage. If there were cages in the nightclub, he would climb in one without asking permission. Dancing on the bar or tables is a staple move of a Flaming Queen.
When he talks, it’s loud, funny, and exaggerated. Fingers are always snapping from flaying hands. When he shakes his head, you fear that it might snap off and roll down to ground looking to get between some innocent guy's legs.
The Flaming Queen has nothing to prove except that he's the biggest thing in the world. He is very shy and introverted when talking to people one on one, but if you get him in a crowd, he's the life of the party.
