The Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a 21st Century order of Queer nuns who believe in spreading universal joy and expiating stigmatic guilt.
‘Unveiled' is an ongoing photo project with a series of portraits of the Sisters ‘in face’ and also without their facial makeup, or in ‘Boy Drag’ as they call it.
I find the Sisters beautiful. The designs and vibrant colours they choose for their faces and the playful, sexy outfits they create themselves express their individuality. I am intrigued with how they express their masculine and feminine sides. They are masculine in appearance, but to me when they are ‘in face’, they transform into beautiful feminine Deities.
Perhaps that is why I feel reverence in their presence.
