Saints

A Saint is a layperson whose life and/or accomplishments are in keeping with the Order’s philosophy and statement of purpose. Any member past the Postulant level may recommend a person for canonization by submitting the proper nomination form to the Mistress of Rituals and Saints, who will bring this to the house. but . The candidate must be voted on by fifty percent (50%) plus one (1) of the general membership at a meeting. A canonization to celebrate the person’s life and accomplishments may be performed as a public fundraiser for that Saint’s favorite charity, or it can take place at any event that is agreed upon by both the General Membership and Saint (i.e. banquet, drag show, comedy roast, anointing, baptismal ritual, bungee jumping, etc.). Saints are not considered members of the Order. They have no membership rights (i.e. voting, progression, etc.), and they cannot speak to the press or the community on behalf of the Order.

Saint P

Saint P

Queen of the Trails

Paul's talents have blessed the stages of Central Florida since 1975 and during his lifetime, performed in more than 100 plays that included Bent, The Elephant Man, A Christmas Carol, Othello, On Tina Tuna Walk, Little Shop of Horror, A Midnight Summers Dream, and Angels in America.

His most infamous role was that of the bawdy "Miss P," that spanned over 25 years at the Parliament House resort. His playful banter on the stage of the Footlight Theater left the audience crying out "Pussy," "Roll" and his shout of "Put Your Hands Together!" always created a spontaneous and on-cue clap from the audience.

He was an accomplished director, performer, and female impersonator who loved to read.
