The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence® are a leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty.
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 use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.
San Francisco, California: April 4, 2021
The Sisters’ annual Easter In The Park will be a virtual celebration, once again partnering with the SF Queer Nightlife Fund and Folsom Street Events. This year's theme "Rise Up With Sisters" hopes to inspire viewers as we emerge from the turmoil and darkness of the past four years. The highlight of the 2-hour event will be the annual Foxy Mary and Hunky Jesus contests. The Sisters invite anyone and everyone in the 50 United States who “feels the Spirit” to submit their holy inspiration for review. A group of highly judgmental Sisters, including Sister Roma and Sister Dana, the event hosts for more than two decades, will peruse the entries and present their favorites live on Twitch.
The celebration will be hosted by RuPaul's Drag Race alum and trans activist Honey Mahogany and Bay Area Activist and Drag King Alex U. Inn. The program will include electrifying performances from some of the city's favorite entertainers including Juanita MORE!, BeBe Sweetbriar, Madd Dogg 20/20, Miss Shugana, Mutha Chucka, Nick Marshall, Kylie Minono, KaiKai Bee Michaels, and more! Also featuring blessings from Sisters around the world, and a very special surprise announcement and auction that is guaranteed to raise spirits and funds for the Sisters' Grant Program.
The live show will broadcast from the newly acquired Folsom Street Events Studio, produced by the team from the SF Queer Nightlife Fund. Tune-in on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/sfqueernightlifefund) on Easter Sunday, 04/04, from 1pm to 3pm.
