a woman who dresses as a drag queen. Also known as a "genetically-challenged" drag queen, because acting flambuoyant and dressing over-the-top can be a lot of fun for some women. The woman may not be heterosexual, but bisexual, or a lesbian, or refer to herself as a dyke.
Comes from "faux" meaning fake - "drag" + "queen."
