RCGSE “Investiture” of XLII Reign
This past Memorial Day weekend, at an event called “Coronation,” the Royal Court of the Golden Spike Empire elected the officers to provide leadership during 2017-2018.
Two co-leaders, titled Emperor and Empress for the year called a “Reign XLII – The Reign of Neverland Dreams” use performance names of Johnny Disco Emperor 42 and Tiana La Shae Empress 42. Other “officers” selected: Melanie Fox Crown Princess 42, Kolton Nielsen Crown Prince 42, Jody La Shaé Prince Royale 42, and Mae Daye Princess Royal 42.
The RCGSE is a long-standing Utah LGBT organization which focuses on live performances and fundraising activities to provide funding for LGBT nonprofits. It is part of a national organization of other groups with similar structure and goals.
An “Investiture” of the current leadership will take place July 9 at The Metro Music Hall, doors open at 4 p.m., performance scheduled for 5 p.m.. According to Tiana La Shae, “Investiture is where the top six title holders receive their invested titles to the community and name their line of succession for the new reign.”
