“Receiving any sort of nomination only eight months into this industry meant a lot to me. Winning Best Newcomer would be great, but there are so many great performers nominated this year that even I would have a hard time picking a winner. Winning Hottest Cock, however, would be a dream come true and would finally make what every director and other models say about my cock finally sink in. Never thought of myself as having a “hot cock,” but after hearing something a thousand times it has to eventually kick in that there is something special about it.”

Sister Roma Creates the Stop The Violence Campaign!

Sister Roma in Purple Photo

In 1991, Sister Roma was in San Francisco and introduced her STOP the Violence Campaign. The introduction of the campaign was a reaction to the organised homophobia and transphobia hate crimes in the streets. A window placard system was devised to mark safe homes to run to in the instance of an attack or the threat of an attack. The STOP the Violence Campaign distributed window signs and whistles in the various neighborhoods, districts of the city as well as on college campuses which were used for people to call for help when being gay bashed.

She served on the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and has participated in countless fundraising projects leading to strong relationships. She has helped a long list of causes that promote and serve the LGBT community. 
She also educates people within the community on sexual health issues. One of her career goals is to be on the cover of Vanity Fair. This was easily done with the help of Photoshop. When Sister Roma asked about her career highlights she said:

“I have the arduous task of looking at naked men all day long as the Art Director at Hot House Entertainment.”

Sister Roma is habitually, perpetually and happily single, but enjoys brief encounters when visiting her beloved Puerto Vallarta. With a schedule like hers, when would she have time to nurture a relationship? Summing up her time with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, she said:

“In 25 years I’ve done it all baby! I’ve worked with everyone from AIDS to PAWS. I’ve served food at Thanksgiving with Tenderloin Tessie’s. I’ve painted kids’ faces for LYRIC. I’ve hosted a Masturbate-a-thon for the Center For Sex and Culture. I’ve moderated public forums on safer sex for the SF AIDS Foundation. Mostly though, I’m a loudmouth who is very comfortable on stage. I’ve been the MC at countless events for years, including Folsom Street Fair, AEF Christmas Eve Dinner, Easter in Dolores Park, SF Drag King Contest, Mr. & Miss Gay SF Contest, San Francisco Pride, Halloween In The Castro, Castro Street Fair, and AIDS Emergency Fund County Fair – to name a few. I’m thrilled whenever anyone thinks to invite me to be a part of their event.”

Some of Sister Roma‘s favorite sayings include:

“Life’s a banquet and most poor sons o’ bitches are starving to death!”- Auntie Mame

“All men are created equal.”- Abraham Lincoln

“There’s only one true judge and that’s God, so chill, and let my father do his job.” – Salt N’ Peppa.

Sister Roma‘s advice to others is simple:

“Be yourself. Accept yourself. Love yourself. Live your life however you want, and don’t listen to what other people say or think, especially drag queens in a newspaper interview, for God’s sake!”

Sister Roma is an inspiration to the entire LGTBQ community which she serves with passion and integrity.

In addition to all her community and charity work Sister Roma also acts professionally as well as in more casual drag performances in clubs. In 2003 she appeared in Ronnie Larsen’s Sleeping With Straight Men at Theatre Rhinoceros with Mink Stole. Sleeping with Straight Men was produced to be a drama based comedy about the Jenny Jones murder case. Sleeping with Straight Men is filled with nudity and odd sexual scenes.

In Falcon Studio’s 1997 film High Tide, Sister Roma appeared with drag star and porn producer Chi Chi LaRue. High Tide had one of the largest casting of it’s time filled with beautiful men and large erections. The adult movie was based in the beautiful landscapes of Hawaii. The men are on the beach, hot and drenched with sweet which makes for some steamy scenes. This movie features Anders a man who has lost his memory, who is trying to get away from his fiancee. He tries to get to a private island to give himself some private time to work out what is going on. On the island he finds a man named Mr Tom Chase who had previously known him. Their connection reignites as Mr Tom Chase and Anders find themselves making out under a cascading waterfall.

In 2006, Sister Roma was nominated for Best Nonsexual Performance Gay Adult Video News (GAYVN) award for her portrayal of Mona Lott, the maid of Wet Palms which is a ten episode gay porn soap opera series. Wet Palms is based upon a man named Peter Dune who is an avid night clubber and is a gorgeous underwear model. He moves on from his old life of partying to be with a man named Tucker Bang who is a kind man that write articles for “Jetsetter” a gay gossip magazine. Simon Jett The Wet Palms hotel manager’s brother is trying to get into Peters pants.

Sister Roma also performed at San Francisco’s longest running drag show Trannyshack. Trannyshack is a drag show that runs once a week. It was originally founded by drag queen Heklina as a Study Bar which ran for 12 years. Trannyshack regularly draws big crowds to their shows. Sister Roma also writes a bi-weekly column Drag It for San Fransisco’s gay alternative magazine Gloss.

Come and meet this iconic drag queen who is one of the hardest working activists for the LGBTQI community at the exclusive FREE meet and greet at 6pm the 3rd of March 2017 at Park Street Books, Level 2/44 Park Street, Sydney. There will also be gay adult movie icons including Brent Corrigan, JJ Knight and Chi Chi LaRue.

Sister Roma and The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – Free Event and Giveaways

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI) are also known as the Order of Perpetual Indulgence (OPI). The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a charity, protest and street performance organization that uses drag and religious imagery to call attention to sexual intolerance by satirizing issues of gender and morality. At their inception in 1979, a small group of gay men in San Francisco began wearing the attire of nuns in visible situations to draw attention to social conflicts and problems in the Castro District.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have grown throughout the United States of America and are currently organized as an international network of orders. They are mostly a non-profit charity organization that raises money for AIDS, LGBT-related causes and mainstream community service organizations who do a lot of work in San Francisco. They promote safe sex, educate others about the harmful effects of drug use and other risky behaviours. Between 1979 and 2007 the Sisters were credited when they raised over $1 million for various causes. They continue to raise an average of almost $40,000 per year.

Early members of the group, when they are not hiding their masculine features or facial hair, are characterized by San Francisco gay community historian Susan Stryker. Susan Stryker is the embodiment of a gender bender. Their appearance has changed over the years; the nun motif remains the same but it has now been joined with exaggerated make-up that accentuates the rebellion against gender roles and religion. The Sisters have attracted controversy both within and outside the LGBT communities but have received the harshest criticism for obvious parodies of Catholic icons and policies.

One of the most outspoken and highest profile members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is Sister Roma who is hosting a meet and greet in Sydney on the 3rd of March 2017 from 6pm at Park Street Books, Level 2/44 Park Street, Sydney. So come along and meet this iconic drag queen who is an activist for the LGBTQI communities.

Community Involvement

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have been involved in various causes including the promotion of safe sex, raising money for HIV/AIDS and breast cancer research. They host important community service activities like the Gay Games, Haight Ashbury Free Clinics and raising the “first legal $1000” for a city proposition to legalize medical marijuana. Sister Roma “There’s No Place like Rome!” organized the “Stop the Violence” campaign in the Castro where the Sisters distributed placards in homes and businesses to signify which were safe places to go and whistles to be used to alert those nearby in case of attack. They have sponsored dances for LGBT youth and given to or worked for a variety of similar objectives.

Over the years the Sisters have been named as saints who are supported by hundreds of people who have helped on various projects behind the scenes. They actively organize projects, coordinate actions, performing at events as an artist or emcee and serve the greater LGBT community in other ways. Sometimes they canonize community heroes who have recently died. It is customary for the Sisters to award sainthood with the addition of an elaborate “saint name”.

For the 24th annual Folsom Street Fair held on the 30th of September in 2007 the official poster artwork featured a photo of the well-known LGBT and BDSM community members. They were clothed in festive and fetish attire alongside Sister Roma who dressed as Mary Magdalene. This event was said to be an innovative version of the culturally iconographic of the famous “Last Supper” painting by Leonardo da Vinci. The photograph was complete with table draped with a Leather Pride flag, cluttered with sex toys, whips, and various BDSM restraints. The artwork by FredAlert was used on the official event guide as well as produced as collector’s posters that were posted throughout the city for advertising.

A fundraising event called the “Great District 8 Chili Cook-Off” on behalf of orphans in Chile which was sponsored by Rainbow World Fund. The Rainbow World Fund is an “an all-volunteer international humanitarian service agency based in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and friends community.”. The fundraising event was scheduled last Sunday afternoon at Ellard Hall, the parish hall of San Francisco’s Most Holy Redeemer Church located in the city’s 8th supervisorial district.

According to the press, the charitable event was scheduled to include the first public return of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to the Most Holy Redeemer Church since the 7th of October 2007. According to an article published in the Bay Area Reporter the “emcees for the event will be current District 8 Supervisor Bevan Dufty and Sister Roma of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”. The Bay Area Reporter is one of the longest running and largest local newspapers that serve the LGBTQI communities. Two members of the group embarrassed San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer when they presented themselves for communion in drag. The archbishop gave the self-described “queer nuns” communion but within a week, he had publicly apologized for his actions and issued a statement strongly critical of the group.

An important emcee at this event was Sister Roma. Sister Roma is a world famous drag queen, social rights activist of the LGBTQI community and an art director of gay adult movie studio “Hot House Entertainment”. In addition to being a professional adult movie director, Sister Roma has served as an emcee at the Folsom Street Fair, an annual San Francisco event that celebrated BDSM and leather subculture.This event concluded the city’s yearly Leather Pride Week. Sister Roma also co-hosts an online live-format talk show about the adult movie industry.

In 2006, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence described themselves as “the leading-edge order of queer nuns” alongside their official slogan is “go forth and sin some more”. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence  were booted out of Ellard Hall which was the same parish hall where Sunday’s cook-off was scheduled. The group had leased Most Holy Redeemer’s parish hall for bingo games to raise funds for HIV/AIDS programs, until the chancery ordered them evicted,

In 2008, Sister Roma posed as Mary Magdalene in a now notorious poster that promoted that year’s Folsom Street Fair. The poster was a take-off of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper” with men and women in leather attire posed as the apostles. Scattered around the table were various whips and BDSM restraint devices. The poster provoked outrage among Christians all over the country.

Sister Roma also acted as emcee at the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s annual “Hunky Jesus” contest. The contest took place on Easter Sunday which mocked the crucifixion of Jesus. Men dressed up as what they thought Jesus would have looked like and prizes were awarded for what was considered to be the best costume. The 2010 winner was Junky Jesus, who wore a loincloth covered with syringes.

Sister Roma is coming to Australia for the 2017 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and will be attending a meet and greet at 6pm on the 3rd of March 2017. The event will be hosted at Park Street Books which is located on Level 2, 44 Park Street, Sydney.
