San Francisco’s favorite drag nuns, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, have declared that they are officially “back to their old habits” for 2023’s Sisters’ Easter. At Dolores Park on Easter Sunday (April 9), celebrity guest emcee Honey Mahogany will officiate an amazing celebration that includes a children’s Easter egg hunt and more activities from 10am-12pm, followed by a series of contests from 12-4pm including the Foxy Mary contest, the Easter Bonnet contest, and the highly-anticipated Hunky Jesus contest.
This is the 44th annual Sisters’ Easter celebration and it’s sure to be absolutely unforgettable with the theme “Peep Show.” Emcee Honey Mahogany will host the festivities alongside the Bay Area’s most coveted performers, including Connie Champagne, Kitten on the Keys, Polesexual, Baloney, The Cockettes featuring Steven Satyricon, Trixxie Carr, Alex U Inn and The Mommaz Boyz.
The children’s celebration from 10am-12pm will include an Easter egg hunt and storytime. Be advised that the celebrations will get more adult-oriented as the day progresses following these morning kids’ activities.
The main event is 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.
