Since 1965, the people of San Francisco have selected an Empress to represent their community. They are tasked to raise money and awareness for non-profit and charitable causes of their choice.
Every year, a new Emperor and Empress are elected by the people of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties.
They reign for one year, organizing fundraisers and events, steering the agenda and members of the Imperial Council of San Francisco, and acting as a figurehead for the LGBTQIA+ community here locally, and represents San Francisco throughout the International Court System.
The Empress of San Francisco is able to direct the fundraising efforts of her court; a family of volunteers, monarchs and titleholders.
Beyond the glitz and pageantry, the court focuses much of its essential work to support non-profits serving the people of San Francisco. When we elect Ehra Amaya to lead this prestigious and historic organization, she will have the resources to achieve the EssentialEhra mission and goal: uplifting LGBTQIA+ folx now to safeguard the future of our community and raising $100,000 for non-profits that provide stability, security and opportunity.
