Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle and the Olympic & Rainier Empire Monarch Candidacy Announcement

To whom it may concern,

I, DonnaTella Howe, hereby respectfully submit this letter of intent to run for the position of Empress of the Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle - Olympia XLV. I have been a resident of Seattle since 2005 beginning my community involvement at a small scale and became a member of the Court of Seattle since 2011 where I ran for and was voted Miss Gay Seattle XLVIII. Having completed my year as Miss Gay Seattle, I stepped into the role of Imperial Princess XXXVI to help complete its reign with the Imperial Prince and later fulfilling a full year as Imperial Princess XXXVII and as of late have been the first Czarina of Capitol Hill in our new family line.

During my years in the Court I have produced events and fundraisers myself and have helped produce others, such as Coronation and last year's 'Gay Day at Wild Waves to learn more about the organization and to ensure that we will be able to continue successfully for many years to come. Amongst my time in the Court and as a Seattle entertainer I've worked with Quake Rugby, Lifelong AIDS Alliance, PSKS [Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets], Gay City, the HIV Vaccine Trials Unit, Pride Asia, Seattle PRIDE, and the Senior Center of West Seattle, supporting their causes may it be fundraising, outreach or hosting/entertaining for their own causes. I continue to support my alma mater, the University of Washington, taking part in campus LGBT events at both their Seattle and Bothell locations, and while living on Capitol Hill I am readily out in the community and involved thru my day job with Team Diva Real Estate and as an entertainer always willing to lend my support as needed.

As Empress I would like to continue our support of the ORION Center with hygiene supplies and work to expand that help to PSKS with the potential of helping them further as they may need. Our increasing visibility the last few years has been wonderful to see and I would like to continue that as well with events or attendance to events farther outside of our normal boundaries here in Seattle. Having worked closely with Team Diva Real Estate and Retail Therapy, I've come to learn more about the homeless youth population that Capitol Hill has. Specifically Lowell Elementary, I believe that these formative years are a time for our youth to have fun, imagine and learn. Not to worry or have need of necessities that should so easily be attained. I would like to work with the people/businesses that are helping do their part and add to it as we can during the school year. I would like diversify the types of events we do, moving from the stage and stepping out of our 'comfort zones.' My hope is to also see 'Gay Day' at least twice as large in attendance bringing more of our communities together.

It would be my hope that we are able to find ways to fundraise successfully that will allow us to complete that task while also not making it the constant focus and giving us more time to work in the community that we helped build and continue to support. I believe in the Court and its purpose and know that that is evolving system-wide. We have helped accomplish many feats and have seen the LGBT community gain a better place in the world, yet we still have work to do for ourselves and others. I would like to see more of the past court membership return to be involved and strengthen our Seattle court community overall as well as work to connect with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Leather community, the Knights of Mantra and others. I have had the pleasure of knowing many of the past monarchs and community members prior to my joining the court and have learned from them well before I was an entertainer. I feel that there is much more we can do and learn from one another to garner success that will carry us forward for many more years to come.

Please vote DonnaTella Howe for Empress of Seattle on Sunday, February 7th at Unicorn, 1118 E Pike St. during our in-town show and awards. Door is at 6 p.m. and show is 7 p.m. I hope that you will also consider joining us for our coronation week events starting on Thursday, February 11th with 'Coronation 2016: A Return to the Paramount, A President's Ball in Black and White Deco' at the Seattle Renaissance hotel on Saturday, February 13th. Door is 5 p.m. and Coronation is 6 p.m. Our full schedule of events and information can be found at the Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ISCSORE/events).

Respectfully,

DonnaTella Howe
Candidate for Empress - Olympia XLV
