San Francisco is known for many outrageous things but nothing is more outrageous than a drag queen nun. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence came about in 1979 right before the onslaught of the AIDS epidemic and they were there in full force to help a community in crisis whose government had chosen to ignore. Fast forward thirty years and the sisters have evolved into worldwide cause still shocking the world with the non-traditional ways of helping their communities anyway they can.
