Today, I paid a visit to brand new shopping event in Second Life, called the Beehive event (here’s the SLURL).
Set to a nostalgic, 1920s soundtrack, the organizer, Kieran Somerville, describes this new monthly shopping event as having “a comforting, home based feel”. Kieran writes:
We’ve all been through a lot with everything happening, and we wanted a full supportive and welcoming event. Our other spin on this, is that we’re a fully LGBTQIA + friendly event. While we aren’t running this as FULLY PRIDE THEMED event, we want products from people who are supportive. Our first round starts in June of 2020. There could be some good gifts to give away during the first round, so make sure you stick around! We’re not a high end designer outlet, so we’re trying to boost the unknown, and those that are looking for something different. We don’t discriminate, so we treat everyone professionally and equally.
A few of the participating vendors have gifts! This Pride-themed shirt is a gift from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Company booth (you’ll have to unpack it at home, though):
