Emjay Mercury

The Sombreros Known Around The Bay

This small hellfire of a xicano originally hails from Fresno, CA but found their burlesque and drag callings in Oakland, CA. They have performed across many stages in the bay including Rebel Kings of Oakland, Folsom Street Fair's Playground Stage, Debauchery, Shenanigans, First Friday Follies, Dandy and Jezebelle's Army in Sacramento. They are one part of the drag king troupe Yeah, Girl... And lest we forget, they are the reigning San Francisco Drag King Winner- (Em)Jay Mercury

La Huerca Hermosa De Burlesque

This small hellfire of a Xicanx originally hails from Fresno, CA but found their burlesque and drag callings in Oakland, CA. Both Jota Mercury and Emjay Mercury have performed across many stages along the west coast.

Emjay Mercury is your thick queer babe who loves to captivate her audience with humor and wild facial expressions. She aims bring bigger representation to queer, xicana, and indigenous performers on the burlesque stage with her neo-burlesque inspired numbers!
