Proud hosts of ICS Parliment, 2012

Prime Minister’s Message It gives me great pleasure to take this opportunity on behalf of the executive board and membership of The Imperial Court of Atlantic Nova Society (ISCANS) to welcome all visiting Monarchs, their court members, visitors, and friends to Motown and Musicals, Coronation XII. It gives us great honour to have been the selected city to host Parliament this weekend and hope that you will enjoy your weekend in Halifax. I want to thank all those ISCANS Members, friends and supporters in the community and our sponsors without you. Your continued support helped us raise much needed funds for our charities, Manna for Health, Aids Emergency Health Fund, The YGLBT Youth Center, and The lodge for Cancer. I want to Congratulate Empress XI and Regent Emperor XI Mz Vicki and Josef along with their upper house on such a successful year. I also want to thank the board of directors, Nate N Bent, Jeff Mac Pherson, Ryan Stevens, Alex Dechenes, and Liz MacQuaid for their dedication and hard work this year. It was not always easy to make the decisions but the board did a great job. We have all worked really hard putting together a night to remember, so settle in and enjoy our hospitality, it’s time for Coronation XII, Motown and Musicals celebrating Reign XI and all their accomplishments.

I’ve been living in Halifax for 21 years and I love drag, charity and making a difference. I’ve had a hard life but all I’ve ever wanted was to help others have the life I didn’t always have. I needed and still need to help other people who are facing hard situations, whether it be needing food, shelter, clothing, medical help or just another chance at life. I managed to find through my life that I could give back and not just take things for granted. Reigning a second time was a challenge ten years after my first reign. It was a whole new ball game with new challenges for both me and our Court but we had fun, did our best and that’s all that matters! I truly do appreciate all of you being here tonight just so much girl. While so much may be make believe, there’s nothing make believe about the money we raise or the friendships we make. With lots of love, Her Most Imperial Sovereign Majesty The Double Crowned Energizer Bunny - She Just Keeps Going And Going And Going! Empress 2 And 11 Of Halifax And All Of Nova Scotia Mz. Vicki Starr-DeKnight

Imperial Crown Princess’ Message Another year over, a new one just begun… If I knew what I was getting myself into a year ago, I probably would have said no. But it has been a great year of shows, fundraisers and all around good times. To my Empress Mz. Vicki, you are such an inspiration to the entire drag community of Halifax, you are still kicking and raising more money than the rest of us put together. It has been a pleasure being your ICP over the past twelve months. To my Emperor Jozeph, you have been one of my biggest cheerleaders this year. It is always great to see your smiling face and know I have someone in my corner. Elle – my ICP partner in crime. Thanks for keeping me sane this year. We have grown a lot over the past twelve months, through the ups and the downs we stood tall. Allan & Clo-hay – Thanks for being there when you could and holding up the male side of ICP. Rouge, Farrah, Eureka, Hex, Kimberly, Owen and all my girls/boys – Thanks so much for all your support over the past year. I love having a drag family to go to whenever I need. Bunni – the other half of the Pelrhinestone Sisters. Even though you have moved and are now part of TICOT you have always been there for me. I am so proud of the queen you have become. Alright, that is enough of that. Now it’s time to put on makeup, it’s time to light the lights. Sit back and relax and enjoy an evening of Motown and Musicals. Good Night and Good Tuck, HMISH Imperial Crown Princess XI Kristi Davidson

Imperial Crown Prince’s Message To anyone reading this message:

I would first like to thank you for attending our 2012 Coronation Ball, and I hope you have a fantastic night with all of us. I am very grateful for the opportunity I was given this year, and for all of the people who supported and encouraged me in all kinds of different ways throughout the reign. I’m extremely proud of my Emperor and Empress, Jozef and Vicki, for all the hard work they’ve done this year to raise money for our charities. These two never cease to amaze me! Jozef has been so very devoted and determined to representing our organization at every opportunity, even when I couldn’t be with him. He has stood tall with confidence all year long, and been a great inspiration to me. Now, where to begin with Vickie? Vickie has been such an instrumental piece of our organization for so long that it really is hard to know where to start. She is likely the most determined person I know, and when it comes to raising money for charities - well, there is just no stopping her girl! It really is true. I’ve seen this woman in heels in every imaginable weather condition, and at any range of events where there could be a possibility to raise funds. Vicki will be going, and going, and going and... well, you get the point; for years to come and we’re very lucky to have her on our side. I’ve also had the great privilege to share this year with my two Imperial Crown Princesses, Kristi and Elle. Both of these girls are just about as unstoppable as Vickie, especially when it comes to performing. I’d like to thank both of you for doing an incredible job this year, and always with class and charisma. Thank you also goes out to Allan for stepping up when he was needed this year and helping out. I would also like to take this opportunity to especially thank all of the out of town, as well as in town guests, who have graced us with their presence this evening. You are as important as any of us on stage, and without your support we wouldn’t be here. Thank you for everything from lending out clothes, accessories, time, guidance... to smiling politely while getting stuck in the elevator with multiple drag queens (if it hasn’t happened to you yet, don’t be surprised when it does). All of those who have come before me hold a special place in my heart because I would not be here if it was not for those who fought to make it possible for me to be out and safe. This year has been a huge learning experience for me, I will admit. I have learned lots about myself, fund raising, community, and more. This year has certainly been one filled with combinations of struggle, and success, and it has all been a part of lessons learned. When I stop and think about why I am doing what I’m doing with I.S.C.A.N.S., it comes down to community. I know that I am very privileged to be able to share a ball room with some of the most inspirational, powerful people I know and I don’t take that for granted. We are so privileged to have each other, and to have a voice, a stage to be creative on, and a membership to an organization with incredible history to be proud of. It is our responsibility as queers, as queens, as kings, as whoever you identify as - to spread that seed of community and continue to connect with others who need support and guidance. Please don’t forget that, and do continue to strive to better all of our communities. I’d also like to take the time to make one last list of detrimental people who kept me sane, and feeling loved, all year long, in all kinds of different, beautiful ways. Patrick, C Leah, Shay, Brittany, Natasha, Kimberly, Rouge, Ty Grrr!, Ash, Peter, Janet, and of course, my bear Bruce. His Most Imperial Sovereigm Highness Imperial Crown Prince XI
