During a recent business trip to Denver, my hotel was the venue for the Rocky Mountain Empire Coronation Ball.  This was a fantastic surprise that provided 24/7 visual stimulation for this trip. In 1965, a “Court System” originated in San Francisco for “camp” fun.  From that beginning, camp titles were derived, such as Emperor and Empress.  The Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire has been in existence since 1973.

They are one of the oldest gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered organizations in the state of Colorado. Many of the major cities in the western United States and Canada have a “Court System” in their community. Essentially, they are a chapter in an international organization.

What a crown! WM Events
What a crown!

Coronation (a gala function held once yearly) is where voters from within the boundaries of our “realm,” crown the newly elected Emperor and Empress. This is significant, as the community has a voice in selecting who they want to represent them in their organization’s fund-raising capacity. The members also attend Coronations throughout the United States and Canada representing the Northern Colorado area in an attempt to further relations with outside communities.
