Meet Evry Pleasure

Today we’d like to introduce you to Evry Pleasure.

Hi Evry, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My drag career started back in 2019 in Puerto Rico, where I was born and raised. Before starting my career, I was a fan of drag. I used to go religiously to the Friday drag shows on the Island and dreamed of trying it one day.

In March 2019, my best friend, who is also my drag mother, was talking about me trying drag at least once. I finally agreed on doing a “makeup test” that ended up in being in full drag and doing a photo shoot.

I got booked for my first show that day and have not stopped ever since. I started becoming more popular on the Island and started hosting shows there regularly. After one year of shows on the Island, the pandemic started and forced me to move to the DMV after securing a job and a scholarship at George Washington University.

The first person to book me for a drag show after I moved to the DMV was Desiree Dik and ever since I have been blessed to be booked regularly in multiple shows in Baltimore, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia. I love where my drag career is at right now; I have been able to do commercials, brand sponsorships, music videos, host shows, increased my social media following and I am the first and reigning Miss Slay Them 2022 from Red Bear Brewing Company.

Outside of my drag career, I am the founder and CEO of Remora (www.remorawater.com), an organization dedicated to providing clean and potable water to communities in Puerto Rico and Latin America that has been featured in National Geographic and led me to receive Puerto Rico’s Governor Medal in 2021.

Between drag and Remora, I am able to use my passion to entertain and help people at the same time.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
While I have been blessed to have a family and group of friends who accepted me and love me unconditionally, there were obstacles that made me question my value as a person, entrepreneur, and entertainer. One of the biggest obstacles for me is impostor syndrome.

I grew up with very little to my name and was always being reminded that I needed to work twice as hard. On top of that, I knew that if I ended up being successful I was going to be the first in a lot of scenarios because not a lot of people in my town had opportunities and successful people on TV did not look like me.

Even though now I have been able to build confidence in myself and my talents, sometimes that little kid comes back and questions why I deserve the success I’ve gotten but I just remind myself that I earned it and I should not be afraid to live up to my full potential by being who I am and enjoying the things I do.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
As a drag performer, what sets me apart is that there is always an element of surprise in my shows. My drag is a mix between pageantry, comedy, and dancing. I take elements of all that and put them together in all my shows.

I may look like I’m about to step onto a pageant but then the mix will turn into me lip-syncing to a viral TikTok or that funny scene from your favorite TV show to finalize with some good dancing to a pop diva. There are always layers and levels in my shows and I think that is what makes me special.

I am constantly evolving and I love that, I am not afraid of trying new things and I am okay with making a fool of myself from time to time for the sake of growing and improving myself. One of the moments I am most proud of is my talent portion at 2022 Slay Them Pageant.

Doing my talent number as Rita Repulsa from the Power Rangers showed how I can mix elements of pageantry, comedy, and dancing together to be the best and most accurate version of myself and helped me get a perfect score from all judges in that category!

What are your plans for the future?
I want to continue growing and evolving; I want to take Evry Pleasure to do things that only existed in my dreams before. I will continue to build my brand and keep learning to improve myself as a drag performer.

I want you to be able to hear the name Evry Pleasure and get reminded of you how I made you feel when you saw me live or online. See you somewhere in the world!
