For some nuns, the only reason they put on the war paint is to allow themselves to flirt with cute guys that wouldn't otherwise give them the time of day. I could easily fall into that trap, but it's not my main motivation for manifestation. I hang out with porn stars every day, so that's not a problem. If you yourself are not equally porn star material, you still get blue balls, but you take what you can get.
I believe this photo came from Up Your Alley last year (or the year before...). We stopped off at Sr. Oy Vey's house for a drink while a couple of hot boys were fucking upstairs. It's hard to recall the exact circumstances, so I'm glad I found this photo on Facebook to put it in perspective. I don't even remember if this shot was taken on our way in or out, or even who took the photo.
I do recognize the cute leather boy between me and Sr. Mary Ralph. Fast forward to a few months ago, and Nick Moretti brought this same cute boy for a porn shoot at my house. Turns out his porn name is Blue Bailey and I've shot both him and his boyfriend, Blake Daniels.
After calling homosexuals "barbarians that need to be disciplined", a group of gay barbarians visited the office of Marcus Bachman, domestic partner of Michelle Bachman, and demanded to see him so they could be disciplined. Naturally, he wasn't there, so the barbarians glitterbombed the office to the tune of Born This Way. Keep in mind the supposed gay conversion clinic receives $150,000 a year in federal medicare funding in a time when Teabaggers want smaller government and less money for health care.
I am very proud of the young gay kids that pulled this goofy stunt. It's not only brilliant, but ballsy and right on point. This is the kind of political theater that the Sisters USED to do, but these kind of actions are few and far between for us. These days we are pushed to the limit keeping up with hosting little beer busts 3 times a week.
I wish the Sisters were brave enough to be a little more political.
Then next Saviour Soul is August 6, 6-10pm at the Powerhouse. The charity is the SOMA Historic Murals Project.
A fun, goofy approach to reach the young voters. When the anti-gay old farts die off, equality will become the law of the land.
New York poet Craig Moreau will be reading from his new book "Chelsea Boy" at an event Friday, July 22nd, 8-10 called "Sex. That's Queer!" at the Center For Sex and Culture (Mission and 8th Street). Along with the reading by Craig Moreau (a cutie pie worth the price of admission just to oogle him!) will be a performance art piece by the Sisters around the five senses - seeing, hearing, touching, tasting. It's produced by Novice Sister Honey Be! as her Novice Project. Admission is pay-as-you-can. Sisters will be facilitating group interaction, self-expression, playfulness and creativity.
I will be playing the role of Mayor of Queer Street.
Sister Flatulina Grande, Sister Anal Receptive and I all got our black veils together, however neither of us can remember exactly when it happened. We're pretty sure our 20th Anniversary is coming up soon, so we've had to do some digging to piece together the dates.
The flyer and photo above was from an event called "High Mass" at Club Townsend on May 22, 1991 where Flatulina and I had our white veil ceremony. (I don't think Anal was there, though.) Both Flatulina and I recall we hadn't actually been voted in as white veils yet, but Sister Psychedelia wanted us to participate anyway. (Things were much looser then.)
Sister Mary Juanita just found some sort of document in the archives that lists our three names with "Fully Professed" after each name and the date 09/26/91. We're not sure if that document was Minutes from a Sister meeting or what, but the date sounds viable. Turns out September 26, 1991 falls on a Thursday.
I recall getting a phone call during the summer of 1991 from Flatulina saying, "Gurl, we gotta get on the fast track to get our black veils!" We decided we should blow them all away with a Folsom Fair booth. I proposed we do a photo booth to charge people to get their picture taken with us. We sold Polaroids for $5 and charged $3 for a photo with someone's own camera. We made $1,500 in one day, which was the largest amount we had ever collected at a single event similar to that. Since it was such a success, we repeated the same booth the following week at the Castro Fair.
If Folsom Fair fell on September 22 and Castro Fair fell on September 29th, then it's likely we got voted in as fully professed on the Thursday between (September 26th, 1991). As you can see by the photos above, we both had white veils at Folsom, but I had a black veil (actually a non-white veil) the following week at Castro Fair.
I then recall it took a long time before we got around to doing an actual ceremony for our black veil. The invitation above was from our black veil ceremony which occurred on April 5th, which would have been in 1992.
I always assumed I became a Fully Professed nun sometime in 1991, but it took some detective work to figure out the exact date - and it was only 20 years ago! Imagine how many lapses in memory and misunderstandings occurred around the time of Jesus, proving that nothing in the bible should be taken literally.
P.S. Colors for a 20th anniversary are Emerald Green and White, and the theme is "platinum and china", just so you know.
Every day we see more and more revelations about what goes on behind the scenes at Fox News. Despite clear evidence that the reporting is a Republican propaganda machine, (right down to this week's stunning announcement that Roger Ailes outlined his plan during the Nixon years) the denial of their stated intentions falls right into the propaganda process. In my casual viewing, I've seen all these steps used in practice, but I've never seen them all spelled out so succinctly.
I can't wait to have Sister Zsa Zsa interviewed by Bill O'Reilly and challenge him on each point.
List by Dr. Cynthia Boaz, Truthout:
1. Panic Mongering. This goes one step beyond simple fear mongering. With panic mongering, there is never a break from the fear. The idea is to terrify and terrorize the audience during every waking moment. From Muslims to swine flu to recession to homosexuals to immigrants to the rapture itself, the belief over at Fox seems to be that if your fight-or-flight reflexes aren’t activated, you aren’t alive. This of course raises the question: why terrorize your own audience? Because it is the fastest way to bypasses the rational brain. In other words, when people are afraid, they don’t think rationally. And when they can’t think rationally, they’ll believe anything.
