An active member of drag queen group the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence was arrested near a park in California for publicly exposing himself.
Clinton Monroe Ellis-Gilmore, a member of the Eureka, California, chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, was arrested at Table Bluff County Park in Loleta, California, on August 12, 2023, according to TimCast.
The 53-year-old man was arrested after police received a report of a male “exposing himself in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle,” according to the Humboldt County Sheriff's office.
“According to numerous witnesses, Ellis-Gilmore had been at that location for approximately one hour, sitting in his truck with the door open, masturbating,” a sheriff's report said, according to the Daily Wire. “The conduct does not appear to have been directed at anyone in particular.”
Not only was the man reportedly shirtless at the time of his arrest, a witness said he was absolutely flagrant about his alleged crime. Witness Randy Creek said he saw Ellis-Gilmore "playing with himself" and that his left leg was outside his open car door while his right leg was on the dashboard while he was pants-less.
2/ Yet it\u2019s been radio silence since the August 12 arrest of a "Sister" for indecent exposure after witnesses say he masturbated in public. Meet Clinton Monroe Ellis-Gilmore, who, according to social media posts, goes by \u201cNovice Sister Bethe Cockhim,\u201d & \u201cNovice Sister Man Romeo.\u201d— Matt Walsh (@Matt Walsh) 1694546095
It was "f**ked up," Fleek said. “It’s obvious. You cannot help but see this guy, he’s not hiding it.”
He “wants everyone to see what he’s doing,” the witness said, even claiming that the naked man seemed pleased when the sheriffs arrived and got him dressed.
“There’s something wrong with that man. He’s got a weird f**king desire to show off to the public, to anybody that wants to look at him,” Fleek added. “He puts himself in a position and in a spot that you can’t help but look at the son of a bitch."
Ellis-Gilmore allegedly goes by the names “NoviceSister Bethe Cockhim” and “Novice Sister Man Romeo," running a Facebook account under the former.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence made headlines in June 2023 when they were famously invited, uninvited, and then invited once again by the Los Angeles Dodgers to celebrate a Pride night at Dodger Stadium.
This caused backlash from the California public, who gathered in the thousands for a protest outside the stadium. Several Major League Baseball players took issue with the group's mockery of Catholicism, particularly Trevor Williams, along with two of the Dodgers' own pitchers, Blake Treinen and Clayton Kershaw.
