Should nuns smoke? Sure, if they’re members of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc.
http://www.thesisters.org/

“The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc. is a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since their first appearance in San Francisco on Easter weekend, 1979, the Sisters have been accused of “Ruining it for Everyone” with their habitual injection of gaiety into serious affairs including human rights, politcal activism and religious intolerance. The Sisters consider it their mission to “ruin” all detrimental conditions including complacency, guilt and the inability to laugh at one’s self.”

Pride

Today was the annual Pride Parade down Denman and along Beach Ave. We staked out our usual spot on Beach, with our backs to water, and watched the spectacle unfold. The highlight was when two delightful ladies descended from an antique bus and queried the way to the beach.
