I went out to see the Second Pride sims - six of them, celebrating LGBT pride and culture in Second Life. A good thing, to be sure.
After Fantasy Faire, and SL9B, I was expecting something rather fun, though. Unfortunately, it's six rather empty sims, of rather bland builds. There is a funfair, which looks vaguely fun. There are important things, like memorials, and art galleries, and a museum of the struggle (still ongoing, alas) for gay rights. It's all very worthy and not very interesting....
Also, I am minded to gripe on a personal level; last I heard, there was an L in LGBT. But you wouldn't think it to see most of this place. So far, I have found a stall for SL's "Oh Boi" lesbian magazine, and that is all I've found. I suppose I shouldn't grumble; in the world of Second Pride, that seems to put us about equal with the Goreans, and we get nearly twice as much space as the Amaretto breedable horses.
Perhaps lesbian groups were approached, but chose - for whatever reason - not to participate? Or perhaps it's that famous lesbian invisibility, that we hear so much about. Anyway. For me, this festival is something of a disappointment. Your mileage, of course, may vary.
