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
