Hunky Jesus Competition hits Golden Gate Park for 35th annual celebration

[HTML1]

Their fondness for pot was all the 4/20 revelers perched atop Hippie Hill shared with those at the other side of Golden Gate Park on Sunday, where men dressed as nuns and Jesus attended the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s 35th annual Easter celebration.

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an organization of cross-dressing nuns, hosted the gathering that featured a Hunky Jesus contest and a trashcan marching band.

‘Twerk It Jesus’ took home the gold from the Hunky Jesus competition after prancing around on stage, wooing the audience with his twerking abilities.

The clown-clad music group, known as the TrashKan Marchink Band, followed up the announcement of the winner with an interactive performance when they marched into the crowd and drew an audience to their drum circle. Two harlequins danced and invited spectators to join them, turning audience members into performers.
