It’s almost here. As I write this, we are 11 days and 8 hours away from Second Pride 2021. Are we ready? No. Will we be? Probably not, but then who is EVER ready when an event starts? You do everything you can, and then you open the doors and wing it! This year has been amazing, and impressive, and even a little bumpy so far, but that always comes with growing pains. We doubled in size this year, expanding to two regions, thanks to Second Life, and we are now connected with Virtual Hope to interact with the charitable organizations we support. Every event, we get a little bit more organized and a little better at what we do. Thank you to Ezziedq Mirabella, Tootsie Nootan, Petr Vanbeeck, and Gauis Alpha for everything they have and are doing to get all this together!
Where do we stand right now? We have lots of shops not filled on the two regions. If you have a business, organization, or community to promote in SL and are a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, reach out to us.
What is our theme this year?
Strength In Difference
Who are we supporting with the proceeds from this Festival?
It Gets Better Project
LGBTQ Freedom Fund
We still need hosts for the various performances during the event.
