Reject Stigma, Promulgate Joy, Follow Your Own Weird – Stokes Croft China

Reject Stigma, Promulgate Joy, Follow Your Own Weird

 

£15.00

Designed to celebrate 30 years of The Sisters of Perpertual Indulgence in the UK, but with what we like to think is a wholly universal message, these mugs capture some of the nuns' loving ethos of spreading joy and rejecting stigma.

The text reads:

REJECT STIGMA
PROMULGATE JOY
FOLLOW YOUR OWN WEIRD

GO FORTH AND SIN SOME MORE

About the Order of Perpetual Indulgence

The Sisters and Brothers of the Order of Perpetual Indulgence are part of a worldwide group of queer people of all sexualities.

Formed around 1979 in response to attacks on the queer community by fundamentalist religious organisations, its tenets are:

  • The expiation of stigmatic guilt, and
  • The promulgation of universal joy.

By manifesting in habit, the Sisters and Brothers challenge gender stereotypes and the oppression of organised religious orthodoxy, which still refuses to accept queers (or, indeed, anyone living an ‘unacceptable’ lifestyle) as being equal members of society with a right to their sexuality.

The Order is not a religious order, nor is it anti religion. Many within the Order observe a religious or spiritual life. Others do not. The Order is open to all who feel the call to join!
