Annie Brenman-West was born In Denver, Colo. on November 5, 1950. In 1981 she was elected Empress VIII of the The Imperial Court of The Rocky Mountain Empire (ICRME). Brenman-West was the first female to hold that position. ICRME is a gay, lesbian, transgender social service organization founded in 1973 in Denver, Colorado. The focus of the organization was originally as a social alternative to the bar scene and to allow an outlet for people interested in female impersonation. ICRME operates the White Rose Scholarship Foundation which has awarded over $240,000 in educational scholarships.
