Cameron Clayton (born September 11, 1993), better known by his stage name Farrah Moan, is an American drag queen, model, make-up artist and internet personality. He is best known for his participation in the ninth season of Emmy Award-winning reality TV show RuPaul's Drag Race, where he placed eighth. His stage name is a pun on the chemical "pheromone", whilst also being a reference to American actress Farrah Fawcett. In some interviews, Clayton jokingly states that his drag surname is a reference to "being a whore".[1][2][3][4]

Early Life

Clayton was born in Houston, Texas on September 11, 1993.[5] He attended Klein High School, and was bullied during his childhood. Clayton's family was poor, and he ran away from them as a teenager, to Austin. He left with a stripper friend, who helped start his career as a drag queen. Prior to starting drag, Clayton was a popular internet personality on the social networking website Myspace, under the alias "Cameron Ugh".[6][7][8]

Career

Clayton's first major performance was as part of a contest entitled "Austin's Next Drag Superstar", where he was placed as a runner-up. Whilst working in Austin, fellow Drag Race contestant Cynthia Lee Fontaine was supportive of Clayton, and helped him get booked at local venues. Clayton has stated that his biggest inspirations in drag are Christina Aguilera and RuPaul. On February 2, 2017, Logo TV announced that Clayton would participate as a contestant in the ninth season of American reality competition RuPaul's Drag Race. The season premiered on March 24, 2017.[1][9][10] Following his poor performance in a roast of the show's judge Michelle Visage, he lost a lip-sync showdown against fellow contestant Alexis Michelle and was eliminated from the competition in 8th place.[11]

Moan was referenced in the first episode of season ten of drag race, with Rupaul misleading the queens into thinking she comes back, to reveal Christina Aguilera, one of her idols, instead. Moan was brought in by the shows producers to meet Aguilera for a Drag Race bonus clip.[12]

In September 2018, Moan performed as a background dancer behind Aguilera for Opening Ceremony's Spring 2019 collection, with other Drag Race alumni.[13]

Farrah photographed with Shea Couleé for Manny MUA's Lunar Beauty palette.[14]

Personal life

Currently, Clayton resides and works in Los Angeles, California.

Clayton and fellow season 9 contestant Shea Couleé were attacked by a woman at a kebab shop in Newcastle, with homophobic slurs included.[15]
