Throughout his career, EDM star Diplo has been an advocate for the LGBTQ community. Whether it was his constant tweets of support for queer fans, or even his Pride Month 2018 playlist of his favorite LGBTQ dance artists, the DJ has always shown his love for the LGBTQ community.

That certainly didn’t change when Diplo did a photo shoot for the cover of biannual menswear magazine King Kong Garçon. The star is featured on the cover of the latest issue, sporting half of his face made up in drag and the other half still showing his normal face and a beautiful blond wig. The star cheekily posted the photo of himself on his own Twitter page, acting as though it was merely a fun selfie he’d taken. “Felt cute might delete later,” he wrote.

This certainly isn’t Diplo’s first experience with drag. Earlier this year, he appeared alongside Brazilian drag superstar Pabllo Vittar in her tropical video for the song “Então Vai.” Along with making an appearance in the video, the two are even seen making out in the clip.
