Copper Topp Biography – Copper Topp Wiki
Copper Topp is a drag performer and contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK series 4. Topp’s preferred pronouns are “She/her” in drag and “He/They” out of drag. Originally from Cheltenham, England, Topp is also the star of a series of bingo ads. She is also a live singer, actor and drag comedian.
On when Copper discovered she wanted to do drag, the drag queen told Spill the Tea magazine: “I knew when I was a kid to be honest. Mum’s heels on, a towel on my head, and a recital of my latest living room musical hahaaaa! How they didn’t know I was gay back then is completely beyond me. Throughout my life it was always something I wanted to try but never had the guts to do. I’d watch drag shows in London with my friends and then watch Season 1 of Drag Race with my flatmate on E4. I always dabbled for friends birthdays and I loved dressing up as an Ugly Sister when I did a panto season. But I finally got into it after I had to have a big operation. It was a really scary time and the operation itself was a bit touch and go. I came out of that with a new lease of life and vowed to take more risks and try the things that scared me. Drag was one of them and Copper Topp was born.”
Though her drag is inspired by British camp icons like Julie Walters, Victoria Wood and the Cheeky Girls, Copper loves to surprise an audience by going into the splits as part of her “camp and physical shows.”
Copper was an actor for many years before moving into writing and directing. The Cheltenham native has had the had the pleasure of directing for BBC Three and Channel 4 and was recently nominated for a Sky Arts Comedy Award. The drag performer is exploring drag comedy.
The drag performer has recorded a single titled LOVE TOPPS HATE. The song is about “how drag has helped me to become the queer person I am today. I’ve had a rocky time getting to this point so it felt right for me to celebrate what I once saw as my weaknesses now being my strengths. There’s also an anti-hate message in there as hate towards the LGBTQIA+ community especially our Trans friends has increased and we need to rally together to fight it.”
Copper Topp Name
In an exclusive interview with Spill the Tea, Copper Topp revealed how she got her drag name, saying: “Copper Topp has been a loooong time in the making. It was actually one of four potential new drag names and being the incredibly indecisive person I am, it took me the best part of a year to make the final decision. Each name was one of many nicknames given to me by my bullies for being ginger and queer.”
