Drag is a word that could be used as a noun, adjective and also as a verb. It has its origin in Middle English and is taken from the word drawen. It was later adapted into Old Norse as draga and then modified as draggen. When someone drags something they pull it with difficulty or effort. Drag is to trail along a surface' especially on the ground.

Drag has different meanings. It could also mean 'to draw on a cigar, or pipe; to take part in something; to search the bottom of a water body; to move a computer mouse; to lag behind; and to pass slowly, tediously or laboriously. Draw, haul, pull, tow, tug, draggle, crawl, creep, inch, dally, dawdle, delay, dilly-dally, lag, linger, loiter, poke or procrastinate are some of the words that could be used for drag.

It would depend on how it is used in a sentence. If you say, "Let's go drag racing", it means racing cars. If you say, "Drag it over here" it means pull an object from one place to another. If you say, "He is in drag" it is referring to a person who dresses differently and acts differently than what his sex indicates.
thanked the writer.
