A busy hoe is a happy hoe
What we've been up to
Saturday, Sister Marjorie Arcana visited Anime STL to dress up all nice, shiny and blue and spend time with amazing folks living in their joy! She spent time getting to know folks and hanging out with The Gateway City Ghostbusters, A Ghost Buster cosplay group devoted to charity and making spaces inclusive and fun for others!
Lots of pictures were taken, she handed out business cards to let folks know SOIL was there to hold safe space for them while they dressed as their favorite characters! At one point, for a few moments, she even carried a mirror up and down a line that had formed chanting "You are beautiful." To folks as they caught a glimpse of themselves in the mirror as the blue nun passed by.
This was in honor of the Sisters who did the same for the crowd at Pride in Seattle. Sister Marjories lil baby self attended and caught their reflection in the mirror as a Sister passed chanting, "You are beautiful!"
Overall, Sister Marjorie had alot of fun on Saturday! As a side note, she ate some nachos that were FIRE and absolutely wants more! Pineapple and nachos yall. Omg yes!
FYI alot of the hateful legislation banning drag queens and trans folks absolutely affects the cosplay community. Cosplay, Anime and video game conventions are usually safe spaces for Queer folks to be open and cross dress without fear of violence. If you are a Cosplayer or love anything anime, video gamey or even anything in geek culture, this fight is about protecting your communities as well so you can let your nerd flag fly!
