The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence guests on Out Loud
Tonight hear from the Portland chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They consider themselves to be Nuns of the GLBT community and we'll hear about their mission, their members, and what projects they are currently working on.
The organization was formed with a three part mission: to help other charitable organizations raise money, perform community outreach, and do safer sex education and condom handouts.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence began over 25 years ago in San Francisco, and there are now Sisters world wide, with Portland being one of the newest Orders. Although the Sisters are all inclusive, we primarily work with AIDS related organizations and at risk youth organizations.
On Saturday June 7th, the Q Center in Portland hosted two events for queer youth. The Queer Core Youth Awards honored area youth with a ceremony and gifts. That evening was the annual Queer Youth Prom hosted by SMYRC.
Carla attended each event and talked with participants.
