The Los Angeles Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence
Our mission is to make people happy, stamp out guilt brought on by a judgmental society and help various organizations and charities, etc ... Our goal is to embrace our gay and diverse selves and each other as we are today, as we were born and as we are meant to be. Our goal is to share kindness, love and laughter with those we have met, those we meet today and those we will meet tomorrow as a source of personal empowerment and pride. If we can do this while raising money for charity and being our natural fabulous selves, then there is room for YOU to be as fabulous as you are and as you were meant to be.
We believe in freedom of expression, teamwork, effort, and diversity. We are a family, committed to social activism, social service and spiritual development. The Order strives to strengthen its community through drag activism, by raising much-needed funds for community charities, and by bringing about a better understanding of gay spirituality. The Sisters also work to unite the various factions of the Southern California lesbian and gay community and raise drag awareness among individuals, businesses, and organizations that are often ignorant or even hostile to members of the drag population.
The West Hollywood Cheerleaders
The West Hollywood Cheerleaders, founded in 1986, are a vibrant and enthusiastic organization of volunteers dedicated to addressing social stereotypes and ending the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS. In 1998 the group was given an official commendation from the City of West Hollywood as the “Ambassadors of Goodwill and Friendship.” Our public performances and grassroots support of other HIV/AIDS based charities like The Life Group LA, APLA, AIDS Walk LA, AIDS LifeCycle, AIDS Service Center, AIDS Assistance Program, Aid for AIDS and Christopher Street West has strengthened our role in the community as we continue the fight against HIV and Stigma. Every dollar donated to the West Hollywood Cheerleader’s CHEER FOR LIFE FUND will be used to educate, empower and amplify HIV/AIDS awareness in our LGBT community.
The West Hollywood Cheerleaders are committed to making a difference in our community. Our mission is to offer support to organizations that provide education and services to people facing life-threatening challenges, including HIV/AIDS. The West Hollywood Cheerleaders offer this support through our CHEER FOR LIFE FUND. When you see our “Spirit Buckets” please donate to help organizations continue to provide HIV/AIDS services in the LGBT community!
