A remarkable book documenting The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence through personal Interviews and stunning photography.
In bright make-up and habits, San Francisco's drag nuns are a well-established cultural fixture. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence formed in 1979 as an "order of queer nuns". Since then, they've become a powerful presence for charity and social activism, across the country and the world.
This spectacular journey into the irreverent, compassionate world of these queer activists offers a rare glimpse at the remarkable people behind the habits. Who are these nuns? What is The Sisterhood? How did they find themselves within it?
Award-winning author Heather Jacks and photographer Benjamin Benoit set out to answer those questions. Over a three year span, they produced a unique selection of essays, interviews, and stunning photographs documenting the Sisters and their personal stories--including remaining founding members of the group.
Sister Stories...in their own words... is a compelling look at a cultural movement, an important piece of queer history, and gorgeous piece of art.
