Sister Muffy and Sister Agatha Frisky, members of the Perpetual Sisters of Indulgence, tout themselves as "nuns of the gay, lesbian and supportive communities."

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence of Tampa Bay will be participating in St. Petersburg Pride this weekend. The drag queens call themselves the "nuns of the gay, lesbian and supportive communities” and use entertainment to affirm people for who they are.

WUSF’s Lisa Peakes talks to two members– Sisters Agatha Frisky and Muffy - of the non-profit, whose chapter started in 2008 at St. Pete Pride. The original group was founded in San Francisco in 1979.
