Meet the Sisters


Sister CasKara

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 de Mure

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 Innocentia Vulgaris

Innocentia was a bingo addict who got hooked on those dauber fumes at a very early age. She hit rock bottom one morning when she woke up clutching a bunch of discarded call sheets in one hand and a depleted dauber stick in the other while sadly singing “Bingo was his name-o.” A kindly woman with a radiant white face and a clam on her head saw her in extremis and made her an offer she couldn’t refuse.“If you want to make Bingo your way of life and free yourself of the all-consuming need to win,” this friendly Sister said while wiping blotches of ink off Innocentia’s beat face, “come on over to the other side of the tumbler. You can get all the Bingo you could ever want and also do good works with your new free time.” Sister Vulgaris went on a mission tour and fell in love: she had a new addiction! Bingo for Good became her new addiction and she lives to bring her newfound joy of life to as many as she can.

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 leathermen 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 leathermen 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.

Meet the Guards

Marshall Jako

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 Reece Tretto

(aka Sister CasKara)

 

Once Upon A Time, in a far off kingdom, lay an enchanted abbey. There resides an enchanted gold plated saucer beneath a chipped cup. Day by day the saucer became stained by the coffee that filled the cup. One day the Sisters of the Abbey broke the spell and the grateful, but once gold plated saucer, Reece Tretto came to be. Forever stained with a bitter sweetness, he was grateful and in debt to the Sisters and their cause.

Squire 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!

Neophyte 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.
