A self-described “order of queer nuns” in California marked the Easter holiday with the return of its “Hunky Jesus” and “Foxy Mary” costume contest in San Francisco following a two-year hiatus.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a San Francisco-based group comprised of men dressed in drag as nuns, kicked off its 43rd Easter Celebration at Mission Dolores Park with an egg hunt for children on Sunday, followed by a variety show featuring men in drag and performances from several local acts.
Video posted to social media showed families with small children were also at the event taking part in an egg hunt and posing for photos with the Easter bunny, who was seen escorted by two men in makeup and drag.
The event also featured live entertainment hosted by local gay icon “Peaches Christ” by acts such as “Nicki Jizz” and the cast of “Reparations: An All-Black Drag Show.”
But as in past years, it was the “Foxy Mary” and “Hunky Jesus” competitions that drew the most attention, with the winners announced as “Transgender Maria de Guadalupe” and “Black Woman is God!,” respectively.
Another post showed what appeared to be an inflatable adult toy as one of the contestants in the “Hunky Jesus” event.
Locally, the competition had gained a reputation for what (Link): SFGate once described as featuring “a series of blasphemous performances” along with free dental screenings and a traditional Easter bonnet contest.
John Grabowski, professor of moral theology and ethics at the Catholic University of America, told The Christian Post the event is clearly “aimed at being deliberately offensive to Christians who see Easter as a time to celebrate Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection.”

It is 3 in the afternoon on Easter Sunday, and Mission Dolores Park in San Francisco is packed with visitors.
A bit of an unusual scene for a day in 2022 — or any day since March 2020 — the park is full of visitors dressed in bling, bright colors or both, sipping on booze and grooving to the covers of Lady Gaga, Lizzo and Dua Lipa.
The music stops and the most awaited competitions of the day begin.
As a batch of six contestants enters the stage, and emcee Peaches Christ asks each contestant about their costume.
“I am Roller Disco Carpenter Jesus, he is risen and he is rolling,” as contestant answers, pointing at an elongated balloon sticking out of his crotch before rolling around the stage floor in his skates.
He was one of the several other contestants depicting Jesus Christ in their own innovative ways hoping to win the Hunky Jesus Contest. Another crowd favorite was the Foxy Mary contest where contestants dressed anywhere between a “postpartum, breastmilk-pumping Mary” to a “mistress Mary.”
