Sister Delilah Dolittle
As a Queer Nun I am deeply, and passionately, tied to the radical vision of a queer consciousness that the first Queer Nuns hoped to portray and develop. I believe that as Queer Nuns we are called to serve the community in a way that is not only fun but is also a radical. As Sister Marymea Himm said; “I think the iconography of the nun is really powerful. It allows people to understand a certain amount of safety, without necessarily having to verbally express it. I also think that for queer people, it was really important to sort of skewer something that was hurtful and damaging. And try to skewer it in such a way that it became useful.” As a Queer Nun I hope to serve the community to not only develop a sense of safety for all people but also build empowerment and spread joy.
