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.

Empress Maria Roman, well known transgender activist and our red carpet star at the very first Czarina’s Diversity Ball, and David Quinte were crowned regent Emperor and Empress of the Imperial Court of Los Angeles May 1, 2016.
With this kind of talent and experience the LA Court should see the beginnings of “the good old days” when it was the Court Jewel of the Southland, as reigning Czarina of All California, Liz Loren, with her usual Royal Panache and under the charter for Riverside County, invested three new Monarchs into The Emerald Kingdom, the Palm Spring’s based non-profit organization focusing on LBGT Youth and their dreams and aspirations.
A new Arch Duchess was invested to Pinkie Meringue Shimmer, a fundraiser and popular cabaret star in Palm Springs, and her husband Kevin became Duke.
The enigmatic former Emperor of New York, Wendy Pinkhouse was made a Count to assist the Palm Spring’s organization to raise diversity awareness and funds!
Empress LaLa of San Diego, fabulous as always, was MC of the investiture and outstanding commands were performed by dear friends Empress Ashly Pendington, who did a hilarious version of Lucille Ball’s “Vita Veggie Vitamin” skit, and Empress Lonnie performed her classic come back song “Where the Boys Are” a great favorite!
We welcome our new Monarchs and look forward to grand times and noble deeds
Historic video of the Imperial Court de San Diego Coronation with the investiture of Princess and Prince of All the Americas as successors to Queen Mother Nicole the Great of the International Imperial Court System, including 13 year old transgender child Zoey is honoured with a cheque from the “Nicole Murray Ramirez Scholarship Fund”.
The investiture was held at an up-scale Helsinki restaurant rented for the evening by Princess Janne. She was surrounded by her closest friends and co-workers at a table sumptuous with flowers, silver and crystal. The Royal menu was a gourmet triumph and champagne flowed freely.A popular young opera singer entertained the prestigious group which included Juha Tuomi CEO of DMK Finland, Socialite and Prima Donna Fashionista Kaarina Kivilahti and her exotic daughter Karina who flew in from Paris for the event.
The Finn assemblage were solemn and respectful as the Czarina dubbed Janne thrice and proclaimed her Princess Royal to the Emerald Kingdom for life. The New Princess Royal Janne, Prima Donna Fashionista Kaarina Kivilahit.
Let it be known throughout the Courts and to all and sundry that Princess Audrey Maria Romanov has resigned her position at the Emerald Kingdom and relinquishes her life – time title as Princess Royale.
Her reasons outlined in her resignation letter seemed somewhat unclear to us, but it appears she is leaving the Palm Springs area and relocating in Los Angeles. Audery stated she will focus on becoming a great performer, supported by her family, sisters and great friends surrounding her.
As always, I am behind any youth who wants to shine in the performing arts. The Emerald Kingdom wishes Audery all the success in the world.
Success in the performing arts is hard work, focus, and most of all, a passion. We applaud her decision.
-Czarina Liz Loren
