Senior Novice Sister Millie Terri

“I never really do the same face twice.”

What inspired you to join?

“I have extreme body image issues and with the Sisters, I’ve found a family that accepts me for the person that I am…not the person people expect me to be.”

Have you ever been involved in drag before?

Not really…

Have you ever been involved in activism before?


What’s your catchphrase?

“Bless your heart, my dearie.”

Editor’s Note: Senior Novice Sister Mary Mona Lone, Novice Sister Vajeen Tahugnkiss and Novice Guard Brother Stonebraker were unable to participate in this holy event of a cover story.
