Sister Indica is a multi-media drag artist and political activist living in Portland, Oregon.
In late 2008 (after years of toiling away on music and other forms of media), she joined a non-profit organization known as The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. As a member of the Order, she used her media savvy to draw awareness to the various Houses she belonged to and the underfunded charities and political causes they supported.
In 2018, after a decade of service, she decided it was best to permanently sever ties with the organization. She felt that the culture of the organization was toxic and that the members did not live up to their Mission of 'spreading joy' and 'absolving guilt'.
She abandoned the Sisters' traditional white face makeup and headpiece/veil (to further distance herself from the Order) but kept the name that she created and built over the years. While she no longer associates with the Sisters and most of it's membership, she recognizes the impact she was able to make on many under-funded organizations and the lives of countless people through her Ministry, fundraising efforts and political activism. That Ministry and activism continue to this day.
As a solo 'drag nun' (or 'rogue nun'), she continued hosting her underground podcast JOY BOMB with SISTER INDICA as well as writing, directing and starring in the audio melodrama Blazed All Our Lives - both under her production company ROGUE NUN PRODUCTIONS, which gives a platform to many different artists and creatives.
She soon added music to her repertoire when she released two EPs with electronic artist Daniel Cox (one-half of the band LOVUR) "I Tried to Escape, The Past In My Teeth" was released in August of 2019 and the new record "If I Could Forgive It, Would That Be Defeat?" was released in December of 2020 on all digital platforms. When the listener puts the two EPs together, they form a full-length release. If that weren't enough to keep her busy, she now hosts a monthly show on her Twitch channel called THIS TALK SHOW WILL SELF-DESTRUCT! She also creates DJ sets that she streams on her Twitch channel (as HIGH TUNES with SISTER INDICA) and also uses as the pre-show for THIS TALK SHOW WILL SELF-DESTRUCT.
