San Francisco’s favorite drag nuns, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, have declared that they are officially “back to their old habits” for 2022’s Sisters’ Easter. At Dolores Park on Easter Sunday (April 17), celebrity guest emcee Peaches Christ will officiate an amazing celebration that includes a children’s Easter egg hunt and more activities from 10am-12pm, by a series of contests open to the public including the Foxy Mary contest, the Easter Bonnet contest, and the highly-anticipated Hunky Jesus contest.
This is the 43rd annual Sisters’ Easter celebration, and after 2 years off, it’s sure to be fantastic. Celebrity emcee Peaches Christ will host the festivities alongside the Bay Area’s most coveted performers, including Carly Ozard, Nicky Jizz and the Stars of Reparations, Kat Robichaud, Connie Champagne, Kitten on the Keys, Kippy Marks, Oakland’s Rebel Kings, Katya Smirnoff-Skyy, and more.
The children’s celebration from 10am-12pm will include an Easter egg hunt and storytime. It will precede the main event from 12pm-4pm, in which contestants can strut their stuff in their Easter Bonnets, or as Hunky Jesus and Foxy Mary. Contestants need simply arrive in their Sunday best (read: hunkiest and foxiest Biblical costumes) and line up backstage for an initial screening. The crowd favorite Hunky Jesus contest will be at 3pm.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a self-proclaimed “21st century Order of Nuns” and nonprofit organization dedicated to the community. They have been in action since 1979, when they first appeared in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, and haven’t stopped since! Over the decades, the Sisters have raised millions of dollars for various local community causes.
