The Imperial Court Systems are the longest and most enduring LGBTQ+ organizations in the country. Through the work of its members, the Imperial Courts have raised millions of dollars for LGBTQ2+ communities and other marginalized communities in need. Fresno holds a special place in the history of the Imperial Court Systems as being the home to one of the longest-running Imperial Courts, The Imperial Dove Court De Fresno & Madera. Join us in exploring this important history with the founder of the Imperial Dove Court, Absolute Dove Empress Jessie I & IV. We will also be learning and exploring the important history of The Sequoia Empire of Visalia and Tulare Counties with its founder El Daña. We will also learn about the continued impact of the courts with the current Imperial Dove Court Empress and Emperor, Empress XLIX Venus De Carlo and Emperor XLIX Christopher Too.
This panel is in recognition of the history of the Imperial Courts in the Central Valley and their impact on our LGBTQ2+ community.
