Dwayne Milan, also known as just Milan, is the stage name of Dwayne Cooper, a former drag performer and actor who appeared in Season 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race.


Milan was eliminated in Episode 6, Float Your Boat. It was her third lip-sync, and she was up against Jiggly Caliente in the bottom two.

Drag Name Origin

In college during Halloween, she and her friends got in drag and picked names. They were all in model mode and she picked Milan as she thought that is where all the big models go to. She also wanted a name that was androgynous, ambiguous, and original. She now goes by Dwayne Milan as she was inspired by Chad Michaels and Willam Belli who kept their real names. Her drag mother is Nicole Roberts from Columbia, South Carolina.
