New street art has appeared in San Francisco to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. It’s also helped to raise the group a chunk of cash. The work is by the renowned San Francisco-based street artist, fnnch. The artist is best known for his trademark ‘honey bears’ that he has placed around the city. Over the last couple of years, his artwork has risen dramatically in value, and prints he produces typically sell out within minutes. In 2020, he donated over $200,000 to charity. Her majesty Sister Roma was involved in the announcement. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence first formed in San Francisco in 1979. A group of gay men in nun-like drag, they preached about the benefits of living authentic lives and warning against the dangers of religious moralizing. They evolved into a unique mixture of charity, protest group, and street performance, with missions around the world. The San Francisco mission had donated thousands of small grants to community causes over the years.  Everyone at Queer News Tonight salutes the vital need that has always been served by The Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence.
