Sunday marked the 35th anniversary of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. The Sisters were founded on Easter weekend back in 1979 in San Francisco, and they have continued their quest to make Easter sexy ever since. In the mid '90s they held their first annual Hunky Jesus contest in The Castro's notorious cruising spot, Collingwood Park. They outgrew Collingwood and moved to Dolores Park, but this year moved the contest to Golden Gate Park, since Dolores is still as tore up as a San Franciscan after a night at Martuni's. If you were too busy celebrating that other holiday and totally forgot Hunky Jesus was happening, don't worry! Akshay Sawhney took some heavenly portraits of the hunky, Jesus-y contestants.
