Who are the Sisters?

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence® is a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since our first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty and we use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.

Give Forward

Sister Barbi (Edward)'s family & friends are uniting to raise money to help offset living & moving costs for his beloved husband, Jefe.

A Nun on Your Side


Though Sisters always want you to indulge when it comes to life (heck, it's part of our name, you know), nevertheless you want you to do it (whatever it is) safely. Below are some of our on-going campaigns that aim to keep you safe and, remember, you always
have a nun on your side.






• Play Fair
Safer sex techniques intended to give you the basics and encourage you to get informed, have fun and lose the guilt.





• Stop The Violence
Stop The ViolenceA practical guide on how to stay safer in the streets, as well as resources if you are the victim of a crime.




• QP!
Sister maeJoy's tips on how to take care of yourself during Pride, or at any time for that matter.





• Bicycling Safety
Stop The ViolenceWe're lucky to live in a city that makes it fun and easy to get around on two wheels. The Sistes want to make sure San Francisco cyclers get around safely and smoothly, so we're offering you some nunly biking wisdom.

It Gets Better
