. . .[T]he drag-queen group known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is back on again at Dodgers Stadium.
The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Monday that the team will stick to the original plan to honor the drag queens who dress like Catholic nuns, less than a week after disinviting them in response to pushback from conservative Catholics who accuse the group of mocking their religion.
The team also apologized to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which describes itself as a “leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns,” after a backlash from activists, politicians and LGBTQ groups outraged by the decision to exclude the drag-performance group from Pride Night.
“After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families,” the Dodgers said in a statement.
“We have asked the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16,” the team said. (Read more from “Dodgers Apologize to Drag Queens Dressed as Nuns, Reinvite Them to Pride Night” HERE)
