Q: What is it the Sisters do?

A: We organize a variety of events where we raise funds for charitable organizations as well as providing fun, laughter, and a premium sexual outlet for aficionados of grease paint and pubic glitter. The charities we serve might be AIDS service / education providers, arts / theater groups, gay teen support groups or women's health organizations. Some events are produced by us (can you even imagine?), some by the charities who invite us to participate, and some we just wander in off the street looking for free food. Do you have any? No, seriously?

We educate and promote safer sex practices, because part of self-love is respecting and taking care of yourself. (Remember to always have a Love Towel in the beside table drawer).

Also, by our very appearance, we re-introduce to the community the spirit of the "Other", and of the shamanic sacred fool that is the Drag Queens historical role in society. If there's room for us to look like we do, then there's room for you to be who and what you are without shame. Unless you torture lemurs in your basement. Then you should be ashamed and stop that nonsense. Lemurs are people too.

NAKED MEN
“I almost never draw a completely naked man. He has to have at least a pair of boots or something on. To me, a fully dressed man is more erotic than a naked one. A naked man is, of course beautiful, but dress him in black leather or a uniform — ah, then he is more than beautiful, then he is sexy!”
— Tom of Finland
