Kameron Michaels is the stage name of Dane Young, a drag queen and performer who competed on Season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race where she placed 2nd/3rd.
Drag Name Origin
She chose Kameron because it sounds androgynous, as she did not want an overly-feminine name. Her last name has no association with Chad Michaels. Rather, she chose it because it sounded strong and no other drag queen in Nashville had taken the name.
