OFFICIAL MESSAGE FROM QUEEN MOTHER I OF THE AMERICASEMPRESS NICOLE THE GREATJuly 26, 2017
After the National Women’s March on Washington I announced that the International Imperial Court Council was going to establish a civil rights arm of our International Imperial Court System: The National LGBT Network U.S.A. Some of you responded positively, a vast majority were silent and had no opinion. A “leader” can only lead an organization if its membership supports his policies and ideas. As I said after the November election last year, the next four years will be a battle with this administration when it comes to our GLBT civil rights.
Now is the time for the American membership of our court system to help us build this civil rights arm of our international organization. Working together we have accomplished the issuance of a U.S. Postage Stamp and the first U.S. Naval vessel in honor of a gay American citizen. We reside in over 25 states and the District of Columbia. We have proven that we can make a difference and can contribute to the GLBT fight for equality.
