StevenPoole? has been doing drag since 1999 and has produced, hosted and performed over a thousand shows, raising money for local charities, sponsoring families at Christmas, delivering necessities to those needing assistance during the pandemic and mentoring 11 “drag kids.”

At Pride 2021, Shayla hosted a drag queen story hour, an all-ages drag show and an adult evening performance. In his interview with Jillian Gillis, he talks about his experience with sight loss; he has no vision in his left eye and is partially sighted in his right. His vision does impact how Steven applies his makeup and manages his performances, but he’s come up with some adaptations that work well for him.2
