The Queen Mother of the Americas Empress Nicole the Great Opening Remarks at The Seventh Session of Parliament

In a few days, people will be celebrating the birthday of the late  civil rights ICON….Dr. Martin Luther King. His word, wisdom and service to others live on to this day.

Dr. King once said: “Everyone can be great…. Because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve…. You don’t even have to make your subject and verb agree to serve….. you only need a heart full of grace…. A soul generated by love….for life’s most persistent and urgent question is: “What are you doing for others……?”

This early morning, in this, the great state of Texas…..I stand proudly with Canadians and Americans who serve their community, their cities….. their beloved nations…. their fellow man…..

This early morning we stand together as an International Organization that will next year mark 50 years of service to others….. five decades of Nobel Deeds….

We, my brothers and sisters have much to be proud of…..

Dr. Martin Luther King also said; “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces……I would still plant my apple tree”

Never….ever forget that we are here today because Jose Julio Sarria planted in 1965 a seed in the historic city of San Francisco…..a seed that grew into a mighty magnificent tree with branches that extended into our three great nations.

Today, I stand proudly with each of you in this room….for we are: the International Imperial Court System of Canada, United States and Mexico!!!

I welcome you to the Seventh Session of Parliament ….. The People’s House ….. Your court’s voice within the International Court System.

I know for me and many others it’s been a difficult and long year since we last convened…. We lost our beloved founder, Jose I and for many the pain, grief and loss still runs deeply….but it is in her memory and her legacy and the history of our individual courts that we must renew our commitment to service and re-energize our membership…. My brothers and sisters: “times they are changing…..”

Indeed the GLBT community is changing…..decades ago our imperial courts were the only game in town… could count GLBT organizations on one hand…. Well not anymore…. There are now thousands of GLBT organizations, clubs, non-profits…..

Yes times are indeed changing and we while keeping our traditions and history….. WE must change with the times….

Not long ago I issued an Official Proclamation stating that individual court chapters can exist, be recognized, and be productive without an elected Emperor or Empress at the helm….It is time courts stopped scraping the barrel just to have candidates and monarchs…..

Listen to me carefully: Courts can exist as chapters, totally focus on membership and working as a team with past monarchs, board of directors, college and membership.

It’s OK… And to be honest:…..I believe, this is the wave of the future….. And that’s OK….look around your communities….your fellow organizations are doing fine without having Royal Monarchs leading them…..they work and strive as a team of dedicated members……

We must make better outreach for court membership. …sadly many courts have become like little cliques…..

Let us extend our hands out more and welcome our younger generations…..more women and especially our straight friends and allies…..and transgender brothers and sisters….

To be honest for me personally….I love it when I meet and see women monarchs…..when I see straight monarchs or those monarch in their 20s or 30s……and yes when I meet individual court members who are also women, younger or transgender….or straight…..

It tells me: Diversity is alive and well in our International Organization…..

But don’t get me wrong….I also celebrate the continuing membership of my fellow seniors and elders……..

We must continue to not only welcome all…but make serious outreach to all within our communities…..

I also believe that for our organization to grow we must strengthen our ties and relationships with one another….. Let us work together as united chapters in our common goal of service…..

I urge your support of our international projects and causes…..these tie us to one another…..and send a strong signal that we are not alone but a part of a historic international organization and membership within 68 cities in our tree nations….

The night Jose crowned me as her successor; I proclaimed my reign as that of the Renaissance era….a Reign of Change….

One of my commitments was to make our Imperial House more of a democratic monarchy…..thus the establishment of Parliament.

I most sincerely appreciate you commitment, devotion, hard work and dedication of you the honorable members of Parliament. It’s been seven years and now I must evaluate the progress and most importantly the productivity of this house…..

I will seek the counsel, advice and input of our entire court system to determine the future of Parliament. But be assured that I remain committed to the involvement to hearing the voice OF THE PEOPLE….

At this time, I wish to acknowledge and sincerely thank the following individuals for their hard work and leadership on behalf of Parliament:

Their Excellences:
Prime Minister Larry Mastropierro (Nevada)
Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Mike Murrell (Vancouver)
American Deputy Prime Minister Mark Surreal (Spokane)

His Excellency, The Speaker of the House, Falcon Furh (Houston)
Her Excellency, Executive Recording Secretary, Bebe Hughes Bouvier

The Board of Directors, Monarchs and Membership of the Imperial Court of Houston

In closing, I wish to say that I believe the best is yet to come for our International Court System….. for our GLBT communities and our movement for equality…..

Yes we GLBT people are minorities within our 3 great nations ……but in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King: “almost always the creative dedicated minority has made the world better”.

Thank you for your Service
You make me proud
God Bless Canada
God Bless the United States
God Bless Mexico

Empress Nicole the Great
Queen Mother of the Americas
