They're here, they're queer, and D.C. is getting used to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and their "drag activism"

Senior Novice Sister Sedusa Poly Tishun

“I take pride in being one of the two tallest of the DC Sisters, as well as having amazing lips!”

What inspired you to join?

“I’d heard of them before, but they were never in an area close to where I was living. Then a few years again, I had the pleasure of meeting the Atlanta Sisters, and something just clicked in my brain. I knew I wanted to bring that magic and joy to D.C.”

Have you ever done drag before?

“I had considered it in the past. Unfortunately, it involves way too much hair removal for my liking.”

What’s your catchphrase?

“I don’t have one! I need to correct that!”
