Imperial Royal Sovereign Court
of the Desert Empire, Inc. (IRSCDEI)

We, the members of the Imperial Royal Sovereign Court of the Desert Empire, Inc. (IRSCDEI), join together knowing there exists in our realm a true need for serendipitous acts of goodness, kindness, love, and charity. It is for these purposes that we gather our collective resources. It is for these purposes that we dedicate those resources which enable us to act as a focal point for channeling needed monies to charitable organizations. During these endeavors we shall be ever mindful that goodness, kindness, love, and charity are virtues beyond measure, and that our means to these ends are to have fun, receive donations, and disperse those assets for the betterment of those people living within our world.

Lambda Business Association

The LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce for Southern Nevada

Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

The Sisters exist as an order of 21st century nuns dedicated to the promulgation of universal joy and the expiration of stigmatic guilt. Their ministry is one of public manifestation and habitual perpetration. The sisters work to raise money for AIDS charities, fight for queer rights and visibility, do safer sex outreach and strive diligently to keep their sense of humor, never taking themselves so seriously that they forget to have fun!

Southern Nevada Association of Pride, Inc. (SNAPI)

SNAPI’s mission is to educate the community by invoking, promoting and celebrating LGBT pride. Founded in 1992, SNAPI is a 501(c)(3) organization which hosts Las Vegas Pride Week every year, complete with a night parade, daytime festival, several nights of parties and pageants and much more. Throughout the year, SNAPI holds fund-raising events for the community, including various parties and bingo nights. Board meetings are held at The Center each month.

Stonewall Democrats

The goal of the Stonewall Democrats is to educate and sensitize the community at large, its Democratic Candidates, and office holders, to the political needs and issues of importance to the LGBT community. They do so by encouraging LGBT Democrats to run for political office at all levels of government, and support the efforts of these candidates.
