Get Ready for the BAD HABITS World Premiere

August 31st, 2011

The new ichannel original documentary BAD HABITS: THE RETURN OF THE SISTERS OF PERPETUAL INDULGENCE, will have its broadcast premiere and its first official public screening in October. Check out the trailer below.

We’ll have more information and photos soon. For now, here’s a quick overview:

Say hello to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Part social justice movement, part religious drag act, the Sisters have been doing good works, challenging intolerance and making many people apoplectic for more than 30 years.

After a 25-year absence, the Sisters are putting down new roots in Canada. And now, the glitter and glory of their outrageous life and times is the subject of an original ichannel documentary by award-winning writer/director Kevin O’Keefe.

BAD HABITS: THE RETURN OF THE SISTERS OF PERPETUAL INDULGENCE will have its world premiere public screening — a benefit for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation — at The Royal¬†theatre in Toronto (608 College Street) on Saturday October 15, starting at 6 pm ET.

Watch for the world television premiere on ichannel this fall!


  1. This was simply an outstanding documentary…congratulations to ichannel and their producers. I was sent a preview and I must say that I didn’t know what to expect…indeed…I confess to rolling my eyes at the “costumes” worn by the “nuns”. However, I was both surprised and moved by the “nun’s” motivations even though I found the humour while funny at times quite shocking. There was a Q&A after the screening at the Royal Theatre in Toronto. I was so impressed by their sincerity and the lengths the three gay men…dressed as nuns from some Fellini film…feel they have to take in order to make a difference. It’s clear that despite the negative criticism that has been directed their way, they do make a positive difference and one can only hope that their kind, generous, charitable, heart-felt, albeit outrageous dress and language, will continue to serve as a catalyst for positive change. One question: There was a segment in the documentary that showed gay men that appeared to mimic Jesus…why did they? Does anyone know?
