Letters-Imperial Court
To the Board of Directors, Members and Inhabitants of the Court of Seattle,

My name is Eric Bonesteel and I would like you to consider selecting me for the role of Imperial Prince 34 in the Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle & the Olympic and Rainier Empire.

As a resident of Seattle for 15 years, I have seen our community go through many changes. From the Hands Off Washington campaign of the mid '90s that fought to protect the basic rights of the LGBT community to the recently passed Domestic Partnership Bill which guarantees us many of the same rights as married couples, we have made great strides. Even so, we as a community must continue to support ourselves in order to continue our growth.

From helping individuals continue their education with the JC/ Lady Graytop Memorial Scholarship Fund, to providing seed money for organizations such as Chicken Soup Brigade (now Lifelong Aids Alliance), to providing grants to Lambert House and Gay City, the Court of Seattle has a history of fulfilling a vital role of support.

It is with this history in mind that I am electing to run for the title of Imperial Prince.

Over the course of the last 15 years I have worked with and for a variety of organizations. In addition to the Court, I have sat on the Boards of both Seattle Men in Leather and Generic Leather Productions of Washington as well has holding titles for these organizations. In addition, I have also worked with The United Ebony Council, The Knights of Malta and the Tacky Tourist Clubs of America, Seattle Chapter. I believe that the diversity of groups that I have worked with in the past will help me foster more cooperation between different groups in the future in order to help our community continue to grow.

With your support I will be able to assist the Court of Seattle in its endeavors to, in turn, continue its support for the LGBT community as a whole.

This is why I am asking you to vote for me, Eric Bonesteel, candidate for Imperial Prince, Sunday, March 30, 2008, noon to 5:00 p.m. at the Richmark Building on 12th and Pine.

In service to the community,
Eric M. Bonesteel

Dear Members of The Board of Directors,

I, Candace Derriere, hereby submit this letter of intent to run for the position of Imperial Princess # 33 with The Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle and The Olympic and Rainier Empire.

My involvement with the court began during the fall of 2005, when I ran and won the title for Miss Neighbours 2005. Within that title year I attended many court functions to learn about and meet other members involved within the court. I also planned and produced two successful non-required fundraisers that same title year.

The following year I ran and won court title for Queen Of Hearts 2006. During that title year I again planned and produced two successful fundraisers for local charities through The Court of Seattle. Being involved as a court titleholder gave me the opportunity to learn more about the different aspects of the court and its function within the community.

I am a strong believer in innovation, support and leadership. I believe these values are important in creating a strong core within the court. The core begins with the Imperial Family by setting good examples for all titleholders to follow. Exercising the willingness to work together and support one another. Let's prove to the community that we are willing and able to do so.

Thinking outside the box and bringing variety to court fundraisers has always been my goal in the past and the present. As Imperial Princess, I will continue to achieve that goal by bringing new ideas and seeking new avenues to involve more people from the community to court fundraisers.

As Imperial Princess, I feel it would be most important to support and stand by the efforts and ideas of the Emperor and Empress, working along side of them together to make all that we do a success.

As Imperial Princess, I want to give others the incentive to be a part of the court and participate in the events. Let's show our peers and the community that by working together and communicating we can create a sense of pride and accomplishment. We can have fun while being a vital part of a volunteer organization.

As Imperial Princess, I am driven towards leadership and setting good examples for others to follow.

Please vote for me, Candace Derriere, for the title position as Imperial Princess #33 2008 with The Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle & Olympic and Rainer Empire

Sincerely, br /> Candace Derriere

Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle and the Olympic & Rainier Empire

Honorable College of Monarchs

I, Derek J. Lloyd (aka Sahara Dior D.), would like to apply for the position of Imperial Princess XXXIII 2008-2009.

I have been a member of this organization for the past four years, since I became Closet Ball Queen 2004 and subsequently Queen of Hearts 2005. I am proud to say, it has been a great honor to participate and contribute raising money to help people in need and also represent this institution. I have learned that it takes more than compassion to aid those less fortunate, Takes a lot of work, effort and commitment. I know sometimes it is not even enough for them. I believe I can do more as Princess working as a team with all of you, representing our organization with honor and dignity, combing our skills, talent and efforts.

I would like to see changes in the way we operate, working together in conjunction with other organizations and members of the community.

I can warrant my full commitment to make that happen, representing all those whom this organization serves. Thank you for your consideration, time and support.

Derek J. Lloyd, aka Sahara Dior D.
