Photographer's Note

Soeur Amora, Sister of the Perpetual Indulgence, Convent of Paris, at the end of the March Existrans (information on the previous photo called "Just Madam"), in front of the H矌el de Ville de Paris. Soeur Amora was more exhausted but I see a desparate attitude, maybe too desparate by all the fights about rights.

Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a charity, protest, and street performance organization that uses drag and Catholic imagery to call attention to sexual intolerance and satirize issues of gender and morality. At their inception in 1979, a small group of gay men in San Francisco began wearing the attire of nuns in visible situations using high camp to draw attention to social conflicts and problems in the Castro District.

The Sisters have grown throughout the U.S. and are currently organized as an international network of orders, which are mostly non-profit charity organizations that raise money for AIDS, LGBT-related causes, and mainstream community service organizations, while promoting safer sex and educating others about the harmful effects of drug use and other risky behaviors.

You can find more informations about this organization on the internet.
