Queen Mother Nicole's Journal Entry V - Tooronto Coronation & ICC meeting - Toronto, Ontario Canada
October 19, 2013 - Toronto Coronation and ICC Meeting:
Canada is indeed a progressive nation. In 1969 when gay and lesbian Americans were fighting back against oppression at the Stonewall Inn the Canadian Prime Minister was making homosexuality legal. Indeed Canada has gay marriage and health care for all and allowed gays in the military long before the USA did. It’s always an honor to attend Coronations of our Canadian Courts… there is no border when it comes to our International Royal family and the International Court System.
Toronto is one of the most beautiful cities on the east coast and I love and cherish all my visits since the 1980s. The International Court Council held one of its twice-yearly meetings and almost 20 ICC members were present. The meeting was most productive and a lot was accomplished- we were all excited over the announcement earlier that our over five year campaign for a Harvey Milk Stamp has been a success with a Milk stamp to be issued in June of 2014.
Toronto will be hosting World Pride next year… the first time this event will be held in North America and 2 million people are expected. It was Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend and indeed its GLBT citizens have a lot to be thankful for. Canadian Royalty always makes me feel welcomed in their cities and is very hospitable to all visiting GLBT Royalty.
Toronto’s late Empress IV Ryan Waters was a dear friend of mine and was the first of only four Empresses to be named a “Honorary Empress of San Diego”. She also was one of the first supporters of the Tijuana AIDS Fund… I will miss her dearly. My Toronto past Heirs include Empress III Dawn Valley Parkway, Emperor XIV Chris Holmgren, Emperor XX Dave Beauchamp and Empress XXI Bitsie Vanderbilt.
Toronto has many all nude male nightclubs, some with backrooms and one with a live sex show at midnight. Your Queen Mother was too tired to make an appearance, but almost all of the visiting Americans did!
The Coronation was wonderful and Emperor Ricky and Empress Michelle and their Court raised over $100,000 for charity!!! I had a very nice conversation with Councilwoman Kristyn Wong-Tam who I believe has a very bright future ahead of her. I was honored to present “The Royal Order Of The Maple Leaf” to Emperor Bob Toane, Prime Mayard Olson, Emperor Ricky Lake and Mr. Cory Garlough- the Chairman of the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation. I was also very grateful to receive a $1000 donation from the Court of Hamilton to the Jose Julio Sarria Scholarship Fund!
The Brunch was fun and I named more members of my Imperial Family… Grandchildren Emperor Ricky Lake and newly crowned Emperor Big Kris who I nicknamed “Emperor Zorba The Greek”. Also the wonderful Empress of Buffalo, Carolyn. Emperor Bob Toane and Dr Rosie and Norma of Texas were named my brother and sisters.
Also a special Thank You to Bryan Greenwood, the Chief Designer for Crystal Countess Jewels for my beautiful gift and of course my fabulous host, My Heir, Emperor John Ribson (a Wendy’s restaurant executive)… always “the host with the most”.
During the Coronation I, with the Queen Mother of Massachusetts, Empress Verna Turbulence, announced the new Principality of Western Massachusetts.
Oh Canada… You’re the greatest and long may you prosper. God’s blessings on you and all of your citizens!
