Meet the Sisters
In the Sisters garden stood a magical cherry tree. The Sisters’ began to gently remove the skin off the cherries they hand picked to create their special sweet yet refreshing brew and that’s when they discovered a flaming fairy named CasKara. She traveled the world with the Sisters, watching and learning from them as they supported the many people in need. It was her mission in her new life to help those in need and bring the gift of joy, laughter and charity with one cup of coffee at a time.
Sister Cheyenne d’Muir
Cheyenne always enjoyed talking her clothes off even as a child. Still, she felt a pull towards something more. When she found the world of burlesque she thought she had found her calling — after all, isn’t getting paid for doing something we love the goal of the American Lifestyle? Yet somehow, there was still an emptiness inside her she didn’t understand until some white face ladies came to a show and were bringing as much joy and laughter as the performers did. She knew then and there that she had to know more. She chatted with these nuns and she knew that this was the call she had been hearing (but she confessed she was unsure about always having to wear clothes!). The Sisters assured her that this wasn’t the case and that she could continue to undress for charity and joy as much as she wanted. Cheyenne immediately joined and has been spreading love, happiness and glitter as well as losing her clothing ever since.
Sister Minnie Dixon Snyder
Spontaneously conceived in the back room of a Chicago leather bar when a someone spilled their Zima and poppers into a puddle of man seed, Minnie has always felt most comfortable in leather. She devoted her early life to serving one or two leather men at a time. One night, down on her knees being of service to the community, Minnie was overcome with the call to spread her joy even further. There must be a way to reach more, to serve more. On a trip to the mountains of Colorado she fell in love with the beauty of the mountains and the friendliness of the people. She knew this was where she must serve. She searched in vain for others like her until she found the Abbey of the Rocky Mountain Cloisters. She threw her legs in the air with joy! Finally, she could serve all the leather men of Colorado, as well as the many others in need of service. Minnie feels a special affinity for those who are shamed and bullied for their lack of masculinity in the leather community.
Sister Dottie Bair
Dottie was a long time fan of the Sisters for much of his teen and adult life, but he never really saw himself joining their ranks until 2016 when the presidential election made very clear that things had taken a very serious turn in our country. As a big, burly bear in real life, Dottie doesn’t get clocked a lot and to be honest… he’d grown very comfortable in that safety. He was convinced “better days” were ahead for all. Trump’s election was a wake up call to get more skin in the game. Because until we are ALL safe, none of us are. So, he joined up… because of his love for this organization and the fact that there’s no point tottering around in drag and heels that Dottie is not painfully aware of where he is. It grounds him and reminds him of how much work we still have to do to ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect. No matter WHO they are or WHERE they are.
Sister Freyja of AssGuard
There once was a baby gay from Salt Lake City, with dreams of being a drag queen and a heart for service. On a day not unlike many others, while searching the whimsical wild web, she saw a gorgeous creature in white face and a veil. This flagrant fiery fairy spoke of a Sistory including Fundraisers, Flag making & community ministry, all while presenting as dragged out Nun.
The baby gay was shocked! She thought to herself, “Could I be a part of this?” And sought out their local tribe of Sisters.
Over many months of watching, learning, and waiting under guidance of Brother Loki a Bear AssGuard, The baby gay blossomed and grew into a fine proud Sister of Perpetual Indulgence.
After much turmoil and trauma in her personal life, coupled with the tragic loss of her dear elder Brother Loki, Sister Freyja found herself stuck high in the mountains of Colorado. Cloistered against her will due to an isolating location and a global pandemic.
One day a voice called out to her, “It’s time to continue your work”, so she once again sought out Sisters. Finding them all up and down Eastern Colorado, Sister Freyja knew this was the opportunity she needed. Eagerly she thunder-thighed down from the mountain top and into the Haus of the Golden Nugget Sisters, taking the sir name of her fallen Brother, Sister Freyja of AssGuard once again had a home from which she can sew and grow Universal Joy. She can crush Stigmatic Guilt under the weight of her sparkling chunk heeled boots, all while blacking out the eyes of prejudicial hatred with her bountiful bouncing bosom.
Novice Irma Fergin-Gerd
Meet the Guards
Found alone and abandoned in the pumpkin patch just outside the convent graveyard, Jako was taken in and raised by the bawdy sisters. Fortuitous for the youth, he found a calling in tending to the Sisters melons, making sure they were plump and firm, so as to make the best impression on their flock.
Marshall Otto DeClosette
One Easter Sunday the Golden Nugget Sisters were visiting the motherland and were getting ready for a glorious walk through the streets of Castro. They put on their bright beautiful faces and went to grab their clam-nettes from the closet and much to their surprise they saw a timid young orphan. Sister CasKara reached out her hand and pulled the young boy out and asked him his name. “My name is Otto but that’s all I know. I have no family. I have no friends. I just want to love and be loved”. The sisters discussed and it was without a doubt that Little Orphan Otto belonged with them, they grabbed a vest from that closet and placed it on his chest. It was from that day on that he was known as Guard Otto DeClosette and spent the rest of his days being loved and loving the Alphabet Mafia of the world with the Golden Nugget Sisters!
Marshall Fleur de Lay
The species Fleur de Lay is in the genus Normadic Fleurifica, which is a genus known for it’s transitory and resilient nature. The species was originally found in the hot, sultry south, mostly in Louisiana, Texas and Tennessee. After Fleur was first discovered, it was cultivated in a very strict and controlled manner. Mostly used in patio plantings and small gardens. However, once it became established, Fleur began to run as wild as Kudzu! It took an intense abatement and management program to get the species under control. After that, Fleur de Lay became scarce around that part of the country, but began to thrive in California and Colorado. Scientists still have a hard time explaining exactly why, but many think it was due to a better growing environment. These days, the species is found permanently in the Denver Metro area helping spread seeds of love and joy with the Golden Nugget Sisters.
