Something Wicked This Way Comes!
Glitter & Gore 2019 is almost here!

Second Pride has an amazing scarefest coming your way with 4 days of “Glitter & Gore” October 25th, 26th, 27th, and 31st. In addition, an interactive haunted experience (more details to come) will open in the next few days, so look for that announcement very soon! Spread the word! Remember, the Second Pride region is open to you anytime, with stores and other amenities open around the clock…stop by and see our progress!

10/11/2019 Update on Donation to
Rainbow Railroad

As slow as the process may be, it IS moving along. Linden Lab is working directly with Rainbow Railroad to confirm their non-profit status and their process credit (cash-out) method. This process involves much paperwork back and forth between the Lab and Rainbow Railroad. Second Pride stands ready to transfer the funds to them as soon as all the red tape is out of the way. We will continue to raise funds for Rainbow Railroad via our Halloween and Winter events, so the donation will just be larger when the time comes to transfer it to them!

Update on Donation to Rainbow Railroad

Just wanted to give a quick update on the status of the donation to Rainbow Railroad. We are slowly working our way through the red tape of helping our friends there understand how to log in, receive our donation, and process credit (cash out) to Canadian currency. We also must work within the constraints of the limits on withdrawals set by Linden Lab for new accounts. Currently, we have sent Rainbow Railroad a small “test” donation to verify that they will be able to cash out without problems, and once that has been completed, we will begin sending larger amounts until our full donation has been sent. We are taking this in small steps to mitigate the risk of losing any funds on either side of the transaction. We will continue to update you on the progress!

Second Pride 2019 Announcements!

Thanks to everyone who made Second Pride 2019 a resounding success! We have raised well over 900,000L just in kiosk donations during the event, and our friends at FMD and The Forty Thieves raised well over 150,000L during their Pride Fest 2019 event! Official totals will be presented at the Annual Meeting on July 13th at noon. Note that this meeting was previous announced incorrectly as being on July 14th…the correct date is Saturday, July 13th.

Second Pride Needs Your
Talent and Insight for Three Things

Second Pride is currently accepting submissions from the Membership (that’s you) in three areas. Please take time to read this information and even if you don’t think your idea is good enough, we want to hear from you!

  1.  LOGOIn our meeting on February 16th, 2019, the Board unanimously decided that we are in need of new logo for Second Pride. We are looking for something that is more readable, especially in smaller sizes, and that resonates with the LGBT community to be easily recognizable when they see it.Please take the following into consideration:
    The logo must be “adjustable” to work in horizontal, vertical, and straight line formats.

    You may make your initial submission in jpg or png format, but if your design is chosen, you will need to be able to provide the original artwork in either Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop, along with the names of fonts used, etc. so that the logo can be resized and manipulated by our own team.

    Please feel free to submit hand sketches if you don’t have or use Illustrator or Photoshop. If we feel you have the right idea, we may reach out to a digital artist to “flesh out” your vision. You never know!

    All submissions made beginning on February 20th, 2019 become the property of Second Pride, and may be used or displayed in any manner deemed fit by the Board.

  2. THEME for June Event The Board is now entertaining ideas from the community for the theme of our main June event. The event runs nine (9) days from June 14th through the 23rd. Shorter themes are best…two to three words that resonate, but we will entertain all suggestions. Second Pride reserves the right to use or modify any submission in part or in whole and use it or any portion thereof in future endeavors.
  3. SUGGESTIONSWe are also seeking suggestions from the community for other services that Second Pride can provide, aside from fund-raising for various LGBT organizations. We do parties and we do them well, but what else would you like to see? This category is wide open, and we will take a serious look at all suggestions.

Please send any materials to be considered for any of these items to the “Second Pride” avatar in-world. A notice will be sent in-world with an email address to send Illustrator and Photoshop files to. We won’t display that address here to prevent spam.

We look forward to seeing what you have to offer! The first meeting of the Board to look at submissions will be held in approximately two weeks.

Donation Made to The Trevor Project

I am happy to inform the membership of Second Pride that as of December 28th, 2018, YOU have helped us make a donation in the amount of $2,170.00 USD to The Trevor Project! Please see the verification document here (Redacted-Receipt-TTP). The donation has been verified directly with a representative of TTP as well.

For the sake of transparency, this donation represents your contributions over approximately three years of fundraising due to the difficulties involved in converting Linden funds to US dollars, the fact that the Second Pride avatar is not tied to a single personal account, tax issues, etc.

In the past, it was always the policy of Second Pride to only make donations using Linden funds passed to an organization that had its own avatar in Second Life, leaving the “cash out” process and taxes in their hands, as it should be. Because fewer candidate organizations for our donations have a presence in Second Life, previous board(s) for the last several years struggled with how to make the donations, and significant time passed with no donation being made. It was finally decided in 2018 that the best option was to go ahead and cash the funds out and make the donation in US dollars, which has now been completed. We are currently researching the best options for future donations, and entertaining suggestions for organization(s) to support.

At this time, all available funds beyond our operating expenses have been donated, and in fact, Second Pride is looking at options to reduce our operating expenses, the majority of which goes to tier for the region “Second Pride.” We will likely have an open Board meeting soon to discuss this and make any necessary decisions.

Second Pride HOLIDAZE Winter Event

New Chairman Appointed

At a special meeting of the Board yesterday (12/1/18), following a regular business meeting, the Board voted to appoint Lee McKay as the new Chairman. A statement from the new Chairman will be posted here soon.

Resignation of the Chairman – 11/10/18

Dear Community,

Today after a productive board meeting, our chairperson, Rez Vale-Starfall resigned from Second Pride. This was after he left the meeting and was done by announcement on our public group. I can assure you this has left the board members in shock as none of us saw it coming.

We will continue to work hard on building Second Pride and having quality events. We thank Rez for his hard work and dedication to the LGBTQ Community of Second Life.

In the interim, please watch our group and website for announcements on our upcoming December holiday event.

Communications Director / Acting Co-Chair

Party like a MonSTAR with Second Pride!

Join us on October 28th, all day…more details to come!

A message to the LGBTQ Community

Dear Second Pride Members,

You may or may not have heard about a very upsetting Board meeting today (October 6th, 2018). As everyone is aware there was a snafu with the original voting process. This, as I have stated already publicly, was my fault. I owned my mistake and the Board took measures to correct that error. Which I supported 100%. It was Bock McMillan that pointed out to me that the IT Director was to be the the Election Chairman, according to the Bylaws in place. He was again 100% correct. The system that was originally used was not vetted by the Election Chair, Lee McKay. Therefore, it could not be used in the state it was in. Additionally, the security was just not there. That was a serious concern to all the Board and should have been with the candidates and members-at-large.

A new voting system was created specifically for Second Pride Elections. It took longer to create then initially anticipated. Anyone who has looked at an SL script knows how complex they can be. We all wanted a secure way for everyone to vote. That way there could be no questions as to the legitimacy of the vote.

That’s the background. So what happened?

Today during the Second Pride new Board Member seating the newly elected Marketing Director called into question the integrity of the Election Chair and myself. Also called into question was the legitimacy of the voting process. Mind you he WON, by a large margin.

After some back and forth with others on the Board, the Marketing Director began making derogatory statements and accusations against the Second Pride Board. Pointing out how unfair the election process had been and how it was suspicious how everything happened and how it was handled. Stating that he was not pointing fingers, but calling out the positions of the Board that he had issue with. Well, since there is only one person in any given Board position, it was easy to see how he was actually accusing that positions inherent occupier. He went on further to degrade the members-at-large, stating “I know that during the second process, the overall feeling was very subdued, people felt angry, disgusted and resigned.” As Chairman, I did not get that sense. During the process, Jimmy was constantly asking for updates on the number of votes being cast. He was told no that was inappropriate. It only incensed him. He stated that in real life you could see how the vote was going and how many people voted. So, I am going out on a limb here, but we in the USA don’t know how many votes were cast until after they are all counted. I am not sure about Jimmy’s country. Perhaps it is different? However, we ran the election process and will continue doing so, according to the rules in the USA.

Jimmy went on to infer that the only reason the original election was deemed null and void, was to get Mr. McKay’s “friend” more votes. Let me assure you of one thing, I am not the smartest guy on the block, but I DO know Lee McKay is not the type of person to do something like that. Nor would he have anyone else do it for him. That is slander and a baseless allegation. Jimmy Augustus-Gracemount needs to apologize to Lee McKay for that.

As Chairman of the Board, I lost my temper and yelled at Jimmy during the meeting. I apologize for letting my emotions get the better of myself at that moment. Lee and I both motioned to have Jimmy removed from the Board. It was seconded, and passed 5-2 in favor of removing him.

Personally, I like Jimmy. He really is a fine fellow. I am not sure why, after winning the vote, he couldn’t just be happy with that and let it go. The outcome was the same.

I am truly sorry that it had to come down to this. I was ready to resign, since it was *MY* fault the original vote was canceled. Bock was correct to point out the problem to me. Lee McKay was ready to resign. For the betterment of Second Pride as an organization, Jimmy had to go. The Marketing Directors position will be absorbed, as the Bylaws are written, by the Events and Community Relations Directors to split the duties as they see fit.

It is with great hope that the future of Second Pride be as bright as it has been in the past. As we move forward into the future, let’s try not to forget why we are here. It’s not fame and glory. It’s not for recognition. It is to do good work and to reach out to our fellow LGBTQ community and bring it together in a spirit that uplifts us all! That is why I ran for Chairman in the first place. It’s why I will continue to the very best of my ability.

ReZ Vale-Starfall
Chairman of the Board

Correction: The first version of this post had the incorrect date of the meeting. This was a typo on the part of the Webmaster, not the Chairman.

ReZ,  SP Chairman

Voting Has Ended, Results Are Certified

The voting has ended for the Marketing and Building Director seats on the Board. The results have been certified by the Election Committee and passed on to the Chair for announcement. The Chairman is out of the country at the moment, and you’ll see this announcement in-world and here on the website as soon as he releases it. We are still looking to fill the Community Relations Director seat…more on that coming soon as well!

Second Pride Board Election
Voting Resumes!

The Election Committee has done significant testing of our new voting solution, and believes it to be secure and reliable. Therefore, voting in the Second Pride Board Election for the positions of Marketing Director and Building Director will run from September 20th, 2018 through September 26th, 2018, a full seven day period. On September 28th, 2018, the Election Committee will certify the results and the Chair will make the announcement. Installation of the new members will be done on October 6th, 2018.

Your candidates for Marketing Director are Jimmy Augustus-Gracemount (jimmmmmy) and Kaiden Brandt (Kalculate). For the position of Building Director, the candidates are Sтαятєя Ɛνєηѕтαяя (starter232) and Dҽʋιɳ Kɳιɠԋƚ Dɾαƙσɳ (devindevin1111). Click on their names to view their candidate statements.

The Community Relations Director seat is still open with no current candidate. Per the Bylaws, the Board has the ability to name an individual to this seat, so it’s not too late to step up! If you or someone you know is interested in being a major part of Second Pride, please contact one of the Board members TODAY! It’s the perfect time to get involved!

New Second Pride Bylaws Adopted

The new Second Pride Bylaws were adopted by unanimous vote of the seated Board of Directors in a meeting held September 5th, 2018 at 6:30 pm SLT. The new Bylaws are the same as the proposed version and are linked under Documents in the site menu. Minutes of the meeting will be posted soon.

Election Update

The new voting solution will be completed soon and voting is expected to start within the next day or so. Watch here and in the Second Pride Festival group for updates and instructions.

The candidate for Community Relations Director has decided not to accept the position. Therefore, we have an open seat and per the Bylaws, that seat is available now for anyone who wishes to be considered for it. This would be a Board appointment, unless we have TWO candidates before voting begins. If that happens, then that race/candidates will be added to the ballot, with a simultaneous discussion phase opened on the website. If you are interested in being Second Pride’s Community Relations Director, please take a look at the Bylaws for the duties involved and speak to any current Board member for next steps.

Second Pride Board Election

*** Voting Halted – Restarting Soon ***

Due to a technical and communications glitch, the voting for the Second Pride Board Election has been halted. Votes that have already been cast will NOT be counted. A new voting method is being worked on right now, and we expect to restart voting on September 7th or 8th. This will allow us to have more accountability in the voting results. If we start by the 8th, it is possible that we will still be able to install the new Board on the 15th as planned. At worst, if there are no voting discrepancies, we might need to push the installation meeting by a day or two. Group joining will remain closed until the election is completed.

Notices will go out with voting instructions as soon as the new method has been tested and finalized. Expect voting notices to be frequent and repetitive since we will be working to encourage those who have voted already to return and cast their vote again. We apologize for this unfortunate development.

Lee McKay – Election Committee

Second Pride Bylaws – Revisions Proposed

According to the Second Pride bylaws, the Annual Meeting is to be held the first Saturday following the main Second Pride event, but as has been the norm in past years, the meeting will be delayed slightly. This delay allows for late donations and gives time for the accounting to be done with diligence. Therefore, this year’s meeting will be held…

Saturday, the 14th of July, 2018 at 12 noon SLT at Second Pride Headquarters

Tentative Agenda

  1. Recap of the Second Pride Festival:
    Tootsie Nootan – Security Director
    Lee McKay – IT Director
    Mikey Vale – Secretary
    Nicky Windstorm – Interim Event Coordinator
    ReZ Vale-Starfall – Chairman
  2. Financials, including the amount Second Pride will donate to The Trevor Project will be discussed
  3. Annual election dates will be announced. Seated Board members are not up for re-election this year, but all open seats are.
  4. Open Forum – If you are a member of the Second Pride group, then this meeting is for you. It’s your time to ask questions and voice concerns.

Expectations and Reality

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Rez StarFall (DJRez Cyberstar) and I am the new and current Chairman of the Board for Second Pride. I am a DJ and a clothing designer. I have been a supporter of Second Pride for as long as I can remember…some years as just a DJ and at others a sponsor and/or vendor.

I ran for the Chairman position with one goal in mind. To make Second Pride the best it can be. I want to make sure that our members feel comfortable with each other and themselves. All of us on the Board have that desire. That is my expectation. The reality is in your hands. Our members make us better than we can be alone.

We are currently looking to fill the open positions on the board on an interim basis, so if you or anyone you know would be interested, please let one of the board members know. A huge THANK YOU to the former board members that have stepped up to help the current board through the transition as acting board members.

Rez Starfall – Chairman
Mikey – Secretary

Special thanks to GaliGear for providing our 2017 Festival T-shifts and my husband Oberon Eames for putting up with the craziness that comes with being Chairman of Second Pride.

And last but not least EVERYONE that attended. Without you, our community, we could not have such a successful 2017 Festival Season. It is after all about community and creating this space where we can share and celebrate our Pride.

On more than one occasion I was greeted by complete strangers and then thanked for providing them with such a true and wonderful pride experience. It was comments like that and many more that told me we had hit our mark. I can’t begin to thank this team enough. You ALL really outdid yourself and should be proud of all you accomplished.

As I mentioned earlier this is my last year as Chairman. It has been such an honor to be involved in this organization. As much as I am ready to step down, I will miss it and all the nuances. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to bring my hope and joy to you all through this wonderful outlet.
