Meet the drag queen bringing glamour to the farmyard

When farmer Dean Goodwin-Evans moved to rural Herefordshire during lockdown, he soon found there was no evident drag scene. But after a busy day of tending his animals, Dean likes to put his wig on and let his hair down as Boo La Croux. So he set up one himself.

The UK’s only known drag farmer is a busy man. He regularly runs drag-themed bingo, karaoke and disco nights at his local village hall, organises events on the Pride scene and performs around the country as Miss Drag UK 2021.

Dean, 38, was instrumental in setting up Hereford Pride, hosted Hay Pride last month and has made himself a name as the ‘Queen with No Scene’. His life has now been documented in a series of images by award-winning photographer Billie Charity, on display at Shepherds Parlour, Hay-on-Wye until mid-July.

Billie says: ‘I first encountered Boo La Croux at Hay Pride, where I was doing the photography. When I found out that Boo was actually the creation of a local farmer called Dean, I really wanted to find out more. He’s my dream photo subject, combining rural life with glamour.’
