Songbook Tea

The Sisters would appear at various community events as part of their mission to spread joy and celebrate the sexual nature of the human beast. Sing-alongs are a great way to involve everyone; all the more so when creative juices flow and lyrics are revised to reflect the reality of life in the gay community.

As part of that outreach, the Sisters prepared a Sisters Songbook, and launched it at a not-so-formal Tea Party held at the 519 Community Centre. The Sisters sang many classic songs, as well as presenting their slightly-reworded lyrics – accompanied by Sister Sadie Masochism on her full-size harp.

A selection of Sisterly lyrics will be posted here in the future; for now we present the front (left) and insides (below) of the invitation to the 1984 Songbook Tea. Since this post first went up, I have published a .pdf with all 19 parody songs from the Sisters’ Songbook, plus 8 of the Order’s various annual Solstice party parodies.

Artwork for Chapter events was done by various Sisters or Friends of the Chapter who may still hold copyright in their work.
