The Most Photographed Nun in the World
2021 marks my 34th year as one of the most outspoken and highly visibile members of San Francisco's Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc. I've been the MC on the main stage at the SF Pride Celebration and The Folsom Street Fair, as well as hosting/mc'ing and performing all over the Country. You may have heard me on KMEL or 92.7, seen me in an MTV video or on CNN or as Co-host of the Tim and Roma show. You can read me in my bi-weekly column, Drag It!, in Gloss Magazine (sfgloss.com). I strive for the adoration of others. I love to laugh -- if you can make me laugh, I'm all yours. I also like gifts of cash and jewelery and will accept bribes from contestants.

Jay Mercury

JOTA MERCURY
JUDGE
WINNER SFDK 2017!

Performing as a member of Rebel Kings of Oakland, infamous host of Oaklash and hottie extraordinaire, this bundle of fierceness made it all the way to the crown from the Lipsync for your Life segment of the show. Although they originally hail from Fresno, California- this small hellfire of a person found their drag king calling in Oakland, CA. This queerdo loves to make you laugh and even more to make you feel what they call "enticed". Be prepared for either or both!
