Dimitri Cloud (Juicy Mango in SL), who co-founded and manages the event with Eva Artemisia, organized the event as a way to bring the community together during the pandemic.
“We went through this pandemic worldwide, and we think that more than ever, Second Life is a safe hub, a safe place,” he says.
The theme for Pride Festival 2020 is “We are fire!”
Fire can be sublime and life-sustaining, a powerful energy that provides warmth and light. The colorful stages pop with energy against the desert backdrop, and so will your outfit! The organizers feel that it is so important to remind each other we are not alone during times like these, and we couldn't agree more.
The event will feature parties with live DJs and music, shopping, gifts, and more. Check out the official Facebook page for instructions on how to join the contests and raffles. There will also be a fashion show art gallery.
Not to be overlooked is the wide aisle leading to the center of the stage, which is emblazoned with the words "Black Lives Matter," perhaps inspired by the street mural in Washington DC.
This event will also feature workshops highlighting the needs for mental and physical wellbeing that marginalized communities don’t always have access to.
