The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Thirty years ago this Easter weekend, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were founded in San Francisco. A drag troupe that champions gay and safe-sex issues and does it with a sense of camp and humor, they were the first organization, gay or straight, to distribute a safe-sex pamphlet during the beginning of the AIDS crisis in San Francisco in 1982. In celebration of their 30th anniversary, there are events throughout the city including an exhibit of archival photos, an annual Easter Bonnet Contest, and even a Hunky Jesus Contest.
