Formation and Early Years
This reign, like all those that preceded it, has been interesting and full of transition. In September 2005, the community elected Christian Dior Essence and Jowanna Piece St. James as the 27th Emperor and Empress. Despite the tough local economy and numerous other organizations competing for the same dollars, the Monarchs, their Court, and several members of the Imperial Family went out into the community and did what many others had done before them?tried to make a positive difference. From participating in Hayward Pride in September to San Francisco Pride in June and many Coronations and Fundraisers in between.
As the 28th House began their adventure They had begun to unfold what would become the most successful reign in years. Emperor 28 John Marques (marks) and Empress 28 Jessica Avalon both travelled extensively and raised Thousands of Dollars during their term. keeping at heart what came first their Community, and those less fortunate then themselves.Both these Monarchs brought new ideas and new funding for the Imperial Court such as grants for scholarships to LGBT&Q Members of our Community who need assistance for schooling.Their Majesties continue to this day being involved in making changes and always looking for the betterment of their community.

The Imperial Double Crown Princess Donica Chatmon went on to represent the Empire along with Imperial Crown Princess Royale Cseneca St. James. they both did a upstanding job during this term. finishing the year with a Coronation event that will go down in History as one of the most exciting and funniest ever.
As we bring the 30th Reign to a close it was a very tough year for our Empire. seating Regents to Represent your Empire is never easy but sometimes nessessary to maintain your Empire and Charitable deeds.
