michelangelo hunky jesus 2008Ever wonder what you’d get when you take Easter, a sacred Christian holiday, and mix in a little San Francisco? Well you get the Hunky Jesus competition of course! Complete story here.

San Franciscans have flocked to Dolores Park in the city to compete in, or watch, what has become an Easter Sunday tradition – the “Hunky Jesus” competition.

Officiated by a gay charity group known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, which has been active in San Francisco since 1979, the contest pits costumed and usually scantily clad men against each other for the distinction of being declared the most attractive Jesus.

This year there were several entrants such as Double-Cross Jesus, Hula-Jesus, 2nd Coming Jesus, Hunky Chessus, and Michael Angelo Jesus. The Hunky Pope even paid a visit :)

Needless to say, the Catholic community was not pleased, calling the event blasphemous. But the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence say that it’s a harmless pageant meant to “promote universal joy and expiate stigmatic guilt”.

You can judge for yourself by watching some clips from this year’s show!
