Through artifacts, records, press releases, photographs, habits and other objects, this exhibition will tell the story of how it came to be that on Holy Saturday 1979, an order of queer nuns was conceived. On view will be the promotional relics of a number of the Sisters’ memorable events such as themed Bingo nights and the annual Easter event in Dolores Park, along with a glimpse into the group’s organizational structure through its bylaws and the Pink Saturday Handbook. Visitors also will be able to read the resumes and vows taken by individual sisters. Join us as The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence present 30 Years of Sistory.
