Novice Sister Lemonade Phoenix
I chose Lemonade Phoenix as my name because I am always having to make Lemonade from this sour life and refuse to let its fire destroy me. You can’t make Lemonade though from lemons alone, you gotta be the sweetness that transforms it. And that’s me, sweet and tart and full of fire!
Lemonade Phoenix is a local visual artist in KC, painter, cake decorator, costume maker, performance artist. She keeps her hands busy to keep her mind still. She first heard of the Sisters through her friend Sister Hunny Bunches of Oaths. So inspired by Hunny’s stories of the Sisters community activism and theatrical creativity, she had to check them out for herself.
“From my first meet and greet to every experience I have had after with the Sisters, I have never met a community of individuals so loving and accepting”, “I want to be that love to the world, I want to give that gift to everyone”. “It truly feels like a divine calling, promulgating universal joy and expiating stigmatic guilt, fighting tirelessly and courageously for equality through our many forms of creative expression and activism.”
