I first met the Sisters in a Long beach Pride when I was 18 y/o, instantly I was drawn to their magical makeup and outfits. I joined the order because the mission of the sister is similar to my personal values and the values of my profession. I am a social worker, and see a lot of the harm that this world does to its people and sometimes it’s hard to believe,to hope, or dream that there is something better in life. The sisters have given me an opportunity keep a valance in my life, and keep the fight against oppressing systems. By putting on the makeup and going out in the community, I feel like I am part of the revolution of mind that is needed to create change in our community and in the world.
