As Sisters and Brothers of The Order of Perpetual Indulgence Sydney, we ever strive to uphold our vows to promulgate universal joy and to expiate stigmatic guilt, pledging our loyalty to public service, social activism and spiritual enlightenment.
Who Are We?
We are an order of Sydney based "Gay Male Nuns" and "Lesbian Clergy " from the LGBTQI+ and other communities supporting people's natural right to live and love whomever they wish, in the way that is natural for them
We work towards a world where loving someone of the same sex is not a crime, nor is it a reason for shame. We wear antiquated, outdated religious habits which parody the antiquated, outdated views still held by established religions and those people that propagate hatred and bigotry.
Membership of the order is open to anyone who believes they have received the call, irrespective of gender, or gender identity and regardless of race, colour or creed.
We use "Gay Male Nuns" and "Lesbian Monks" in our terminology, as there are no such animals in the ranks of the Roman Catholic religion!
As "Gay Male Nuns" Sisters use the male pronouns ( he, him, his and himself) when referring to ourselves and each other.
Why a Holy Dingo?
Early in the history of the Order in Australia the Dingo was adopted as a sacred totem. The Dingo was a creature stigmatised for doing no more than living true to its nature, in much the same way as members of the LGBTQI+ community.
Every member of our House is guided and bound in their actions by our Four Tenets

The Second Tenet
The Expiation of Stigmatic Guilt
