Sister Gretchen Gitaround

 Abbess Mother  - President

Date Started: October 2018

 

My name is Gretchen Gitaround. I first heard about the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in early 2008. 

I, along with 4 other close friends, decided to begin a Mission of SPI. After a year and a few months of learning our community, working to produce events that raised LGBTQIA awareness and safer sex education, and just general mischief making, our group reached our goal of attaining House status on December 21, 2009. We became known as the Magic City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (in Birmingham Alabama).

After serving as Secretary, Vice President and President of MCS, and devoting my time and abilities for ten years to the House, I began to look around at the many other cities in Alabama that needed the services and unique perspective of Sisters. It was then that myself and 4 other individuals decided to bring Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to the growing City of Huntsville Alabama. 

Though our Mission is new, there is a FIERY passion to help Huntsville become aware of LGBTQIA issues confronting us daily. We attained permission from "the powers that be" to begin our journey in March 2019. 

I am always mindful of the lessons learned while ministering in Birmingham, and am so thankful that Huntsville has opened their hearts and minds to the message and love Sisters present. Should you run across our Rocket City Sisters, please stop and say hello. A word of encouragement and support goes a long way to helping us as we strive for safer sex education (eliminating HIV/AIDS in our lifetime) and awareness!

I am SO blessed to have found this wonderful organization (SPI) and to be working along side like-minded individuals to give a voice to those who can not speak for themselves. May you always find joy in the small things of life, victory in the challenges of life, and love from the people in your life!

Sister Double Penetration

Sister Double Penetration

 Mistress of Novices 

Start Date: October 2018


 I started my journey as a Sister 10 years ago this year. I have always been concerned with those "living on the fringe's of society", but when I became a Sister, it became my mission. Sisters work tirelessly to make the lives of those in our LGBTQIA+POC community more enjoyable and have value. This is my heart and my passion. So you only have to know Sisters to understand why I joined. Anyone wishing they could "help others" or "make a difference need to look no further than Sisters to find an organization that works tirelessly for change. It's the best decision I have ever made... now I have a purpose and a family where I truly belong!

Sister Harry Manillblow

Sister Harry Manillblow

  Mistress of Scribes 

Start Date: October 2018

In the depths of Space a harry creature emerged from a

cesspool of gunk and crawled up on land. It slithered along until

it found a rocket ship bound for earth. The creature attached

itself to the rocket and waited…when the rocket landed on

earth, the creature had lost its slime. It just so happened that

the rocket landed near the only gay bar in Huntsville and so,

tired from the trip, he wandered into Deja Vieux. Hit on by many

drag queens, he began to wonder if he was gay or destined to

be a drag queen. Then he discovered Aioli Stromboli, and he

knew he was NOT! After a brief encounter doing the

“horizontal mamba”, he found that Aioli needed serious help.

Trying to keep up with his appetite to devour young hunks, he

soon discovered that he was able to explore more than one

every night and still have energy! Then, into the bar wandered

the Rocket City Sisters, not understanding their curious

appearance, he thought “I’ll join this strange group and see

what will become of me.” He took on the persona of Guard Harry and began this journey called

Sisterhood.



Guard Mary Kris Misstrie

 Master of Alms 

 Start Date: February 2019


A rock star from the country of Rap, Mary Kris Misstrie  (Trie to her

friends), was walking with her wife through the PRIDE

festival a few years ago when she happened upon a group

known as Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She grew to

understand that the “Sisters” were a group known for their

unorthodox wit and irreverent humor. “I would fit into this

group very nicely” she thought. It was several year later

before a group of space alien landed in their rocket ship at

the Space and Rocket Center carrying a group known as

Rocket City Sisters. Trie immediately connected with this

crazy, yet strangely beautiful group. One night as the RCS

and their new member Trie were out “ministering”, she

happened on two beautiful lady’s (using the term loosely)

Unita and Anita of the Liquor Flogger group. As she

approached them she caught the eye of Anita. She asked

Anita if she wanted to dance to which Anita replied “I’d

rather take you out back…” Trie immediately agreed and the

two of them soon realized that they had a cosmic

connection with Anita on the cross and Trie holding the

whip.

Sister Aioli Stromboli of the UnHoly Cannoli Clan

 
Aioli Stromboli of the UnHoly Cannoli Clan

 Mistress of Habits

Start Date: October 2018


After landing on earth, her long journey from a planet known as

Pizq Adni (which translated mean Fart House) complete, Aioli

Stromboli of the UnHoly Cannoli clan, this human eating Lizard

robot from outer space, began to pass herself off as a man. Not

just any man, but a drag queen known as Kabbahla Divine. Months

passed and she began to assemble a following. Little did anyone

know but she was taking men to her lair and devouring their “souls”

before releasing these soulless creatures back on earth to do her

bidding. Then she came across this furry creature known simply a

Harry (Manillblow). She found she was attracted to him when one

evening they were in the Deja Vieux bathroom blowing young men.

She began to pursue him and soon had him in her lair. But Harry,

not having a soul, was not affected by her “horizontal mamba” and

was able to escape. Confused by her inability to hold power over

Harry, she thought to herself; “I’ll find a group to hunt with, there’s

power in numbers.” Just then the Rocket City Sisters came into the

bar…

Sister Joan of Cox

Joan of Cox

 Mistress of Propaganda

 Start Date: February 2019


 

Sister Joan of Cox has committed his life to the service of others. He has worked with a number of Not for Profits in the North Alabama area since 2009, including Grateful Life Community Church, Renaissance Theater,  and The Historic Lowry House. From 2007- 2009 he served as a member of the Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature as well as on the TISL 3G Appellant Moot Court. While at UAHuntsville he was co-founder  of the UAH Gay-Straight Alliance, and served as President of the UAH Political Science Club. 

  Outside of his service work, his hobbies include painting, cooking, gaming, singing with his church, and playing several instruments. Sister Joan has degrees in both Communications and English Literature, and is more than happy to share his current favorite book and social media tips  with anyone. 

  Sister Joan first became aware of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in 2010 at Nashville Pride when he met a member of the Music City Sisters. He saw the way sisters are able to unite the entire community and serve as a bright ambassador of love, compassion, and safe sex education. In January of 2019 he saw a Facebook post made by Sister Aioli Stromboli about bringing the Sisters to Huntsville. Sister Joan knew then that the stars had aligned and the universe was opening a new door. In the time since his first meeting he has unlocked his heart of hearts in his service to the LGBTQIAPOC community. 

  Sister Joan personally identifies with  Saint Joan of Arc; The Maid of Orleans, and it is from her that he derives his name. As for the later part of his name, one can certainly use their imaginations.

Sister Anita Flogger

 Start Date: February 2019 


Anita Flogger: It was a Tuesday afternoon, Anita was

tied up to a St. Andrews Cross behind the Deja Vieux,

this was her usual Tuesday thing. The afternoon was

wearing on and it was about time for Tuesday Bingo

to start. About then, Sister Unita of the Rocket City

Sisters came out on the patio to smoke. She saw

Anita and yelled “Hey Sister Hey! Any luck today?”

Anita answered with a proud “Hell yea Sis, I’ve just

had this amazing three way those two new guys we

had interested in join us…Harry and Aioli. They

flogged me until I went off like a ‘rocket’”! Unita told

her Bingo was about to start so she should come in

and eat before it began. (Unita helped her off the

cross) Anita said; “Sis, I’ve been eating all day, but so

homemade chili sounds good, I think I’ll join you.”

Together they went in for Bingo Pot Luck. As they

were eating, Anita saw Gaiabolical Trie walk into the

bar. Gia was always known for her flogging

abilities…among her many other talents. Anita

excused herself and told McKinsey, the host of Bingo

she might not make the first two games. She, as she

put it, was “going to see a man about a tree…”
