With Pride festivals around the nation canceled or postponed, LGBTQ Nation is bringing the celebration to you with our new series “Flashes of Pride.” We’ll look back at some of our community’s finest moments from the past few years as a reminder that no matter what life throws our way, queer people will fight our way through it and dance when we hit the other side.
Last year, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence helped out an anti-hate speech protest by drowning out a hate group commentator.
The all-men far-right group Proud Boys organized a Demand Free Speech rally in D.C. on Saturday to protest social media platforms that ban people for hate speech.
The counter-protest, All Out D.C., was larger than the protest itself and featured immigrants, Native Americans, and trans women of color as speakers and local artists as performers.
And the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were there.
In a video that was posted to Twitter, the Sisters drowned out a member of the far-right media that was antagonizing the counter-protestors… with fan thworps.
Because it’s really, really hard to hear what others are saying when a bunch of nuns are thworping their fans.
