A drag queen shared the adorable reaction their grandmother had to their drag in a heartwarming TikTok video.

TikTok user Twink Trash, a drag queen and opera singer, showed off a gorgeous, handcrafted, yellow and black ensemble in the clip.

The words “me doing drag for the past six years” appeared at the top of the screen as they finished zhuzhing the checkered look, which included a stunning top hat and a dramatically draped cloak, and strutted to show their grandmother.

The video then cuts to Twink Trash’s grandmother staring slack-jawed at the wondrous look.

“You look so great!” she exclaimed, quickly whipping out her phone and giving them a big thumbs up.

“Great job,” she added.

Twink Trash explained in the video that their grandmother “taught me to sew and appreciate fashion”.
