Come Easter weekend in mid-April Sister Vish-Knew should be posing for photos underneath new street signs bearing her name. The co-founder of the international drag nun philanthropic group the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is now one of three drag personas with streets named in their honor in the City-by-the-Bay.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted 11-0 Tuesday in support of ceremonially naming Alert Alley as "Sister Vish-Knew Way." It means residents of the alley between Dolores and Landers streets will not have to officially update their addresses.

The new street signs bearing both names are expected to be unveiled Saturday, April 16, the day prior to Easter when the Sisters plan to hold their annual celebration of their founding over Easter weekend in 1979.
