Aleksy C. Romanov
Czar 1 of Georgia
Founder of the Crown Magnolia Court of Georgia in 2020, I was inspired by the court of my home state, the Imperial Sovereign Court of Montana, to start a productive drag court here in Georgia. I have lived in Atlanta and Augusta since 2016, the warm weather and Southern food is what keeps me here. In my non-drag life I am a Family Medicine and LGBTQ Medicine doctor specializing in transgender medicine. I am also an Air Force Captain, avid foodie and married to a wonderful caterer/florist daddy. When I am not doing court events or volunteering at my transgender clinic, I can be found at the gym or sleeping. The Romanov surname was inspired by my real-life maternal grandmother, who reigned from St. Petersburg Russia.
Czarina 1 of Georgia
Gunza has been twirling through Atlanta since 2001. Since her start in the drag scene, she has performed in many charity shows for many different lgbtqia causes. She is the founding Abbess for The Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and have served on the board for many years after the sister’s beginning. She is excited to be starting this journey as the Czarina for The Crown Magnolia Court of Georgia.
CJ Foxx Star
Prince Royale 1 of Georgia
First started my International Court System (ICS) experience in 2017 with the Court of Tacoma in Washington State where I was their Mr. Gay Tacoma 2017-2018. During that reign, my Miss and I raised over $10,000 for charities across the state and nationwide to include: Mission 22, AIDS Housing Associates of Tacoma (AHAT) Homecare and the Permission to Start Dreaming (PTSD) Foundation. I then moved in June of 2018 to Augusta, GA, due to a military Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and have called Georgia my home since. Speaking of PCS, I am an Active-Duty Soldier and have served with the United States Army since July 7th, 2009. I plan to make the service a career for the full twenty and then exit to become an elementary schoolteacher. Currently have my Bachelor’s in Child Development and working on my Master’s Degree for the same.
When I am not busy with work or working on studies for my Master’s program, I can often be found volunteering with my extra time. I volunteer regularly with the Augusta Soup Kitchen (feeding the homeless), with Augusta Rape Crisis and University Hospital (as a Victim Advocate and Crisis Responder), with the Augusta, Atlanta and Savannah Pride Committees (regular Pride volunteer and staff) and am an adult advisor for the Richmond County Young Marines (shaping future servicemembers for the US services) and James Elementary Big Brother/Big Sister Program. I am also a Victim Advocate for the United States Army to ensure Soldiers and other servicemembers alike are following procedures, guidelines and have a safe space and location in the event issues arise for Sexual Harassment, Assault or Trauma.
Lastly, when I am not doing any of the above, I love to perform, well CJ does. I am an aspiring Hyper King in the local and ICS community. I have performed at several events and shows both for charity and promotions of causes for the community. My performance persona allows me to volunteer with other organizations (such as the Harriet Hancock LGBT Center [SC], Rainbow Center [WA], Matthew Shephard Group [GA] and several others) within and outside the state through virtual activity times, virtual story times, theater productions, online fundraisers, and local and non-local Court shows. It’s been an experience and one I have loved every moment of!
AKA Mama Bear
President, Board of Directors, Membership Coordinator
Is a resident of Conyers Georgia since 2013. I was very involved in the Leather community during my nearly 20 years in Washington DC. Within the Leather Community I became known as MamaBear. In 2008 I formed a 501 C 3 organization for LGBT causes and named it MamaBear Charities, Inc. After becoming a member of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington DC, the drag persona Sister Penne Kostal was born.
Ms Kostal performed with GMCW a couple of times and many times at clubs in and around Washington DC.
After a move to Atlanta I became a member of The Atlanta Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence, and served one year as Abbess for the House. In 2018 I purchased a restaurant in Atlanta and due to the business left the Sisters. The restaurant closed this past year due to the Pandemic and was not able to reopen.
Being retired now I found that the Crown Magnolia Court of Georgia was being founded and was privileged to be ask to serve on the developing Board of Directors. And thus Sister Penne Kostal became LadyP.
