Sister Indica is Your Homegurl for Life! She joins me to talk about the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and how she got into this amazing charity ad LGBTQ activism organization!
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.
She’s not just any old fantastic drag nun, she’s also a podcaster like me. She produces JOY BOMB!
“The following program contains strong language, a liberal bias, mind-boggling homosexuality, shade, frequent complaining, oversharing, shit talking, the occasional uplifting anecdote and all around verb
al debauchery. All opinions expressed are that of our Supreme: the gorgeous and talented Sister Indica. These are NOT the opinions of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Werrrk.com or ElloDrag. Consider this your ‘trigger warning’.”
And yes, she manages the drag community over at ello (remember ello?) and publishes articles over at werrk.com!
We’ll cover topics serious and not so serious – about what it means to be a member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence; growing up gay in a community where friend’s mom is in the KKK; the perils of make-up, high heels, starvation and heat exhaustion when in drag — and yes… THE GOLDEN GIRLS!
Sister Indica will talk a little about her trip and offer some advice to any young people who dream of doing drag or just walking their own path! Hang in there – you can make it better!
