Candidate for Chair
Having been in Second Life and a supporting member of Second Pride for many years, I believe that I can bring a unique perspective to the Board. I am an entertainer and clothing creator for Second Life. I have very strong ties to the LGBTQ community, as well as the greater community that is Second Life.
I am independent, strong willed, fair minded and believer in the greater good should always come first, kind of person. I used to think that wanting to be Chairman of Second Pride was an ego thing. After meeting and talking with many past Board members, this is simply not the case. It is a deep rooted desire to do something positive for the community, as a whole. Something that I am entirely in complete agreement with.
I believe we, as a community, need to be even more inclusive. Reaching out to the straight community for their inclusion into this incredible organization and community. We need to fight back against the homophobic notions taken by so many and educate then through our vast resources. Our members!
Resisting the current political climate in the U.S. and around the globe should be of the utmost importance. We need to ensure we are doing all we can for our brothers and sisters around the globe, so that at the very least, they know they are not alone. We also need to increase the awareness of our young LGBTQ family that they too have a voice, and are certainly loved and not alone.
My hope to be able to push forward an agenda of security for our community and for those that support us. To ensure that HOPE remains a constant in very trouble times.
Thank you for your consideration.
