Sister Soami DeLuxSister Soami Delux is a co-founding nun of the cosmic Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (United States)/Order of Perpetual Indulgence (worldwide).

Her heart is as big as her title.

With Sister Homo Fellatio, Sister Soami printed the first set of Holy Postcards at the Harvey Milk Photography Center in Duboce Park in 1980. Three hundred copies of the hand-printed cards speedily sold out and they quickly found a printer for the second run.

Sister Soami says this about the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence: “We deliver the sanctifying grace of camp humor to a world in need. We are sacred clowns in queer culture. Our early roots were with the radical faeries.”

He recalls one event in particular that represents for her a focus of sisterly creativity: “Our first funder was a Bingo Benefit for Cuban Refugees from Castro’s prisons and held at the Metropolitan Community Church in the Castro. We called the game in English, Spanish and ASL (sign language) with a salsa dance party after the gaming sessions and we raised $1,500 for the MCC’s resettlement program.”

Over the years of his service, Sister Soami has had several names, including Sister Missionary Postion, Sister Missionairy P Delight (‘89 after the first Sister Missionary Delight died of AIDS in Baltimore), Sister Iamosama DeLight, the Sodomite of the Most Holy and Beautiful Dove, Rumi, Sufi Heart Now (‘02 in memoroy of faerie brother Beautiful Dove), and the short version of that overlong name is just So Am I, or formally, Sister Soami DeLux.

Her favorite aspiration to the faithful at every Pride March, “Alegria por todo el mundo e culpa no mas.” Sister Soami, a fervent shehe, is a joyous inspiration to those who meet him and to many whom she has influenced yet never met.
