Serasim is the home of Seraphim HQ inworld where all kinds of events are held throughout the year, including Blogger Panels, Holiday Events, and SeraPride!
SeraPride is their annual one day fundraising event. Last year the event raised well over $3000 USD. Hoping to raise even more this year, the festivities will start on June 18th at 11:30am PT and throughout the day there will be DJs, a Drag Race, SeraPride Idol, Raffles, Giveaways, and more! All proceeds will benefit Rainbow Railroad, a small Canadian based organization that helps LGBTQI+ people threatened for their lives to relocate to a safe place.
Both Del and Kess share a passion for raising awareness for this cause. Del says, “This event is a fun way to raise awareness, bring in some donations and help some people survive. At the end of the day we as humans are driven to help one another.”
Kess shares her sentiments, “The situation for LGBTQ folks is dire at the moment. Be it in Afghanistan or many states in the United States. We are trying to provide a colorful environment, that we are custom building, for a really vibrant event that will be a lot of fun! Second Life has always been a place that attracts people who are curious to explore their identity to the fullest and it has become for many a place that feels safe to be who you are.”
So grab your rainbow gear and head on down to SeraPride on June 18th for some fun community engagement while contributing to an important cause.
