Second Pride: celebrating diversity in Second Life

Second Pride

Currently taking place through until Sunday, July 2nd, 2017 is the 12th edition of Second Pride, celebrating diversity in Second Life, and the LGBTQ, gay and straight communities – and “In Between or anything you want to be”, in the words of the organisers. This year’s event has the theme Resist, Rise Up, Be Proud.

Taking place on the Second Pride region, the event has plenty to offer: shopping, music, dancing, amusement rides, lounges and cafés, an oriental themed garden, and more, all in support of a number of charities and non-profits (donation kiosks can be found through the region, and there are two special non-profits donations stores in the south-west corner of the shopping area).

The shopping event includes home and garden decor designers Apple Fall, N4RS,  T L C Home Decor, Sources, RJD, Consignment, The Artist Shed, DJ/SF ( Shutterfield), InZane Design and Unkindness; fashion designers S’wear by Lapointe & Bastchild, GABRIEL, MIND, PowerDesign, RNR, RGDW, Jackhammer Gear for Men, DMG, [SM], RedAngel, and DnL. Many of the designers are offering discounted items to attendees, and there are also opportunities to pick-up various free items during the event.

    1. You’re welcome – although I had intended for a post to go out much sooner; things just went a little sideways. Enjoyed exploring the event, tho and chatting with several people 🙂 .

      1. So awesome! just sorry I missed you! Social media is keeping me occupied enough to not always see the world around me. But seeing everyone enjoying and feeling like they belong makes it worthwhile. Thank you so much for your time! and: Happy Pride!

    3 days old avatar with numbers in his name: “hi” “how old ru?” “can i fuck u?”
    (and given the place, I could have been a lesbian).
    Maybe 7 am SLT wasn’t the best hour LOL
