LGBT History Month Launch 2017

In November 2016, Stuart Milk​ of Harvey Milk Foundation​ and Global LGBT Advocates Czar Drue​ and Danne King​ with Danne Montague King​ Company attend Sue Louise Sanders​ Schools Out UK LGBT History Month 2017 Launch at House of Commons – England, UK

LGBT History Month is celebrated in February in the UK but our work to educate out prejudice continues throughout the year. Our interactive calendar is also all-year-round so check it out or add an LGBT related event of your own.

There is now a way that you can raise much needed funds for ‘Schools Out United Kingdom’. Simply visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ and sign yourself in., this takes a few seconds and, when done, will allow you to contribute towards ‘Schools Out’ when you are shopping or just searching on-line. It won’t cost you a penny and money raised will go straight to ‘Schools Out’ by regular bank transfer

The overall aim of LGBT History month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.

This is done by:

  • Increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community;
  • Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT community;
  • Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT communities; and
  • Promoting the welfare of LGBT people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBT people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.

Star for Bijou on Palm Springs Walk of Fame

Countess Bijou of the Emerald Kingdom of Palm Springs and Riverside County receives the 396th Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame!
The crowd was large and full of energy as friends of Bijou gathered for her to receive her Star in Front of Georgie’s Azul on June 9th, 2016 at 3:00 PM.  Many well know Palm Springs personalities were there to congratulate Bijou, one of the original members of the Czarina’s Court.  Although Czarina Liz Loren was at a Charity event with Julie Newmar in Hollywood, members of the Czarina’s Court gathered to support our friend and comrade.
In attendance were Imperial Crown Prince Stefan Hemming, Prince Royal John Moran, Arch Duke Keven Romanov Baar, Arch Duchess Pinkie Meringue Shimmer Romanov, Advisor to the Emerald Kingdom, Empress Lonnie of Los Angeles/Hollywood, Count Larry and Countess Jacquelyn Sanchez-Barret of the Imperial Court of Los Angeles showed their royal support for Bijou, who is the oldest performing Drag Queen in the USA.
There were many speakers who rendered their stories of love and affection for Bijou, and her many years of charity raising in California and New York.
The Emerald Kingdom of Palm Springs is extremely proud of Bijou, one of our own hard working court members, and congratulate her on her Star and wish her only continued success.

Queen of the Desert Favorite

Emerald Kingdom Arch Duchess Wins Fan Favorite at Desert Aids Project’s “Queen of the Desert” contest.

I attended the “Queen of the Desert” contest on June 1st, 2016 to support Arch Duchess Pinkie Meringue Shimmer of the Emerald Kingdom of Palm Springs and the Desert Aids Project.

The room was sold out with over 700 local supporters in the audience. Each contestant raised funds individually and also at the event. Judging the contestants on a comedy number, dramatic/high energy number and evening gown competition, were judges Delta Work, Gypsy, Maude Chapeau and Dottie Du Bois.

Emerald Kingdom was very proud of Arch Duchess Pinkie, who won fan favorite as her team raised over $8,000.00 for the event.

As donations poured in and were announced, Arch Duke Kevin Baar of the Emerald Kingdom beamed with pride as his partner Pinkie amazed the audience with her comedy rendition of “Lucy doing the Vitameatavegiman Commercial” and a soul wrenching blues number with a new and exotic headdress designed by Kevin.

Accompany me at Kevin and Pinkies Table were Count Larry and Count Jacquelyn Sanchez Barret of from the Imperial Court of Los Angeles.

The room had an amazing energy as the Community of Palm Springs came together to support the Desert Aids Project annual fundraiser.

Excitement is growing for Emerald Kingdom’s Midsummer Madness Event on July 10th, 2016 from 6-9 PM at the fabulous Copa Nightclub in Palm Springs, benefitting Sanctuary House, the first foster home for LBGTQ Youth in the Coachella Valley.  Please come out and support this event with a star studded line up and a special appearance and performance by Czarina Liz Loren of the Emerald Kingdom of Palm Springs herself.
