Court members, fellow Monarchs and friends, What a wonderful year it has been and a true honor to serve and to represent the RCGSE in town and abroad. I have so many people I have worked with and so many wonderful events that have taken place during this year. I have had so much fun raising money for the community and working to bring people together to overcome common differences and find our common ground. Thank you to the venues, management and staff that have supported us throughout the reign: the Trapp, Paper Moon, Metro, Mixx and our other supporters. We couldn’t have done so many wonderful shows without somewhere to host us, so thank you.  I have had the wonderful opportunity to travel to 13 coronations during my reign and it has been an amazing experience to meet so many amazing new friends and to see so many strong court systems across the circuit.

I truly appreciate your support and involvement. I would like to recognize my Queen Mother, Sheneka for all of the advice and helping me with multiple things throughout the year.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my cancer week, and a special thank you to Sheneka, Indi, Brandon, Charles Black, Paris & Austyn, Kyra and Johnny. It was a great opportunity to get out in the community and raise money for an awesome cause.  Thank you for all of the community support, and everyone who performed and worked with us to help raise money to do what we do, which is to give back to the community. This is a joint effort, and it will continue to be.  It is now time to pass the torch to the next reign. I wish all the best of luck to the incoming monarchs and know that they will carry on the traditions that we have been building since our founding in 1976. I wish you luck in your fund raising efforts, I hope you have fun traveling and doing shows in town. It is a wild ride - you will laugh, cry, work through long nights, missed flights, fatigue and you will also make lifelong friends and know the joy of community giving. From reign 37 - may you have a successful reign.  With all my love, Her Most Imperial Majesty The Tantalizing Pink Diamond the Hope of the Community The Synergy of the Spike Empress 37

The Royal Court of the Golden Spike Empire History Utah’s Oldest LGBT Organization During June of 1976, Salt Lake City witnessed the birth of a new social organization with the coronation of Pepper Prespentt and Deanna as the first Emperor and Empress ofThe Imperial Court of Utah (ICU) atThe Rusty Bell. The group thrived on people’s curiosity and interest. The new monarchs entertained the community. Another important element of Pepper’s crowning was she was the first lesbian to hold the title throughout the International Imperial Court System (IICS).This was an exciting time for Utah’s burgeoning LGBT community. The following year, the election of Emperor II and Empress II surprised many because Paul North was elected Empress II by a write-in vote, something no longer permitted. During this reign, Paul only dressed in drag twice, and at the PR Ball, Emperor II, Fred Ringel, appeared in drag. As the prominence of the Court grew, the positions of Emperor and Empress became more desired. With five Empress candidates and three Emperor candidates, the campaign lasted six weeks. In 1978,WendonYoung and Carole Marindale were elected Emperor III and Empress III. Carole’s election highlights the Court’s commitment to non-discrimination because Carole was the first straight woman elected Empress. During the fourth reign, Salt Lake’s Court faced turmoil. The elected Empress resigned three months into her reign. Six months later, all members of the Court resigned in front of the Reigning Emperor of the Imperial Court of Utah. In a short ten minutes, the ICU was disbanded. However, but the community’s dedication to the ideals of the IICS continued and thus began the Royal Court of the Golden Spike Empire. Joe and Dusty were crowned Emperor IV and Empress IV. The fifth reign was the first to start after the breakup of the ICU and Joanie and Pete decided that in-town was very important to take care of. They attended only two out-of-town coronations which included Denver and Portland. They also initiated the new voting system that required the punch vote which is still in place to this day. It ensured a fair result and the Police Department agreed to count the ballots. The Court decided that instead of Krazy Pete and Joanie Lynn becoming Emperor and Empress I of the new court, they became known as Emperor V and Empress V. Thus, the past would be honored and the previous four reigns would be acknowledged. During the sixth reign, EmperorVI, Bob Stevens, and EmpressVI, Marita Gayle, were very active. Bob created Volleyball teams and a Denver/Salt Lake tournament, a Court poker run and Court softball team. Marita started the sub titles, “The Champagne Empress,” and the spike titles, “The Heart of the Spike.” The monarchs travelled to ten out of town coronations. They were able to attract a record attendance at their coronation of over a thousand guests. With so many out of town visitors, their “Out of Town” show ran for six hours. Tracey Ross was the first African American Princess Royale by the Board of Directors from three candidates chosen by Marita. The seventh reign was one of firsts, traditions and turmoil. Michael and Wilma were lovers when they ran (not as a ticket, but as individuals) and won. They did not run as a ticket, that was not allowed, but on together just the same. In December of 1982, at a court function,Wilma called Marita Gayle, President of the Board, at the time, up on stage, and had her readWilma’s resignation speech which she had notarized by a Notary Public. The audience and Marita went into shock. An immediate meeting was held in the office ofThe Sun to dismiss and ignore the resignation, but because of it being notarized, nothing could be done. The community was outraged, because Wilma was a very popular empress. A rally showed support for Wilma and entreated her not to resign. To no avail, she stuck to her guns and in January of 1983, the reigning Princess Royale,Tina St. Clair, was crowned EmpressVII Regent. By proclamation, EmperorVIII, Alan Anderson, created the board elections of the Prince and Princess Royale, which would take place prior toVictory Brunch, the morning after Coronation. Empress XVI StephanieThomas’s proclamation voided Alan’s by creating a public election for the offices. These

elections only occurred during reigns 20 to 22. She rescinded her proclamation and Alan’s was reinstated The ninth reign established the reigning Monarchs as Co-Presidents of the organization. The Empress served as President and the Emperor served as Vice-President previously. Lee was also a past Rainier Emperor in Seattle, Washington. The ninth reign was also responsible for establishing the AIDS fund which is governed and maintained by the College of Monarchs. This made the court one of the first organizations in our community to officially address and help people living with and dying from HIV /AIDS. Through this fund, the court has raised and given out hundreds of thousands of dollars and helped hundreds of individuals and organizations. Reign History As the R.C.G.S.E grew and established itself as a community-based volunteer organization to help combat the AIDS epidemic, the AIDS Awareness Week became one of the most educational and community building activities the court has in Utah. Emperor X, Scott Stites, issued a proclamation, which created AIDS AwarenessWeek for the court each October to raise funds and awareness. The reigning Emperor is responsible for this annual event. During the 33rd Reign, Emperor X, Scott Stites, issued a change to the resolution regarding AIDS Awareness week, moving it to March from October. This change went into effect during the 34th reign. Over the years, the Court’s visibility and influence has grown and waned. The dedication of its members has carried the Court through both good and bad times. The Court continues to support the community. In addition to the AIDS fund, the Court has funds for Cancer,Youth, Scholarship and Pride. The 37th reign created a fund to support Transgender people with the expenses related to transition, such hormones, surgery and legal name change.
