About the Campaign

The international imperial court system of the USA, Canada and Mexico was founded in 1965 by War World 2 veteran Jose Julio Sarria, a proud Latino activist who in 1961 became the first openly LGBTQA candidate to run for public office in his beloved city of San Francisco which has honored him with a street named after him. There are two award winning documentary on his life and the court system. The imperial courts were one of the first organizations to raise funds against Anta Bryant’s homophobic campaign. There are now 70 court chapters in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. They have raised millions of dollars for LGBTQA causes for now over 55 years. Empress Jose crowned San Diego City and County Commissioner Nicole Murry Ramirez as her heir and successor in 2005 and currently reigns as the Queen Mother 1 of the Americas. All people from all walks of life are always welcomed as members of the oldest LGBTQA Organization in the world

About the National LGBTQ Task Force-

The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice and equality for LGBTQ people. We are building a future where everyone can be free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you

ABOUT

The Imperial Court System in the United States was founded in San Francisco, California, in 1965 by José Sarria. Sarria, affectionately known as "Mama José" or similar among Imperial Court members, adopted the surname "The Widow Norton" as a reference to Joshua Norton, a much-celebrated citizen of 19th-century San Francisco who had declared himself Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico in 1859.[2]
