The Atlanta Chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, known as the Order of the Flaming Sugarbakers, believe costumes and extravagance are a way to show their cheer for the queers. But it was a somber moment for the Sisters when they gathered Saturday at Ansley Mall to honor the several teens that have committed suicide allegedly due to anti-gay bullying.
The Sisters read the names of many of the recent suicides recounted in the media and said a prayer for them, lighting a candle in their memory. More than 40 people showed up to also show their sadness and to call attention to the need to let queer youth know there are adults who can be there for them in their time of need.
