While British-American drag queen Lady Camden came in second to the winner of season 14 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Willow Pill, she still won US$50,000, and Lady Camden is, to my knowledge, the first ever Ru girl to appear as an avatar in social VR, on Philip Rosedale’s High Fidelity platform, in 2019. Here’s a look back:
February 7th, 2019: Well, this evening’s BINGO EXTREMO event at High Fidelity was well attended, with 150 avatars playing several successive games of Bingo for prizes of Oculus Rifts, HTC Vives, sums of HFC (High Fidelity’s in-world currency), or (twice) everybody present winning 100 HFC! In a surprise twist, our emcee was none other than London drag queen Lady Camden:
There were a few technical glitches (some people’s numbers wouldn’t rez on their Bingo cards, and the sometimes the board showing which numbers were called was too blurry to read), but overall, the event was a success.
High Fidelity seems to have truly mastered the ability to host events with a large number of avatars present. Congratulations to Philip Rosedale and his team for another successful Bingo night!
