The Manchester community includes The Manchester Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. We are loud, outrageous, in your face and bold.
What do we do, though?
We turn up to rattle charity buckets, talk with people and help fight discrimination. Yes, we look outrageous but that helps us spread joy at the same time, and to be noticed.
Well, you don't dress like us to blend in!
Our Manchester community has shown that life must be much more about sharing all that love and affection. So let's have more hugs. And help others to smile. Kissing statues of Alan Turing is really rather good, but not at all necessary.
fighting for good causes
PreP on the NHS, end persecution in Chechnya, fight HIV stigma, ensuring free condoms for all, ending stigmatic guilt - there are so many to fight for. Including gin and tonics. Being a part of the Manchester Community is so important.
making a difference
Supporting the Manchester community is more than just our beloved LGBT community. We get out and about to all sorts of events and fundraisers. Let us know if there is one we could come along to and help out!
the helping hand
We are all volunteers. Every one of us donates our time, skills and love being a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence. And although it's a commitment, it doesn't take much time each month.
no one is excluded
Although, world-wide, our numbers primarily consist of gay men, anyone can join and become a Sister. Anyone. There is no barrier. And although we are spiritual animals, your religion is never a barrier as long as you have an open heart.
quiet as a mouse
Hmm, or not! We are known for our ribald humour, our bracing talk and our in your face attitude. We are outrageous! So, if you're faint of heart and a delicate wall flower, you might be a little shocked at our talk and shennanigans.
What would you like to ask?
We realise that reading our gorgeous website might not answer all the questions you have about becoming a Sister. So, if you like, we can arrange to meet up with you for a coffee and a chat. (We don't wear our habits for that!). That way, you can ask anything you like. And, of course, there is no obligation to join.
