HIV and AIDS still impact the lives of millions throughout the world today. Its impact in urban areas is often understated publicly, but the effect it has on those it touches profound, transforming lives, destroying health, and devastating families.
Second Pride, the organization that creates Second Life’s largest pride celebration, is holding a fundraiser for AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), to raise funds to increase awareness of the disease, assist those living with HIV, and service the community, while researching its impact on various segments of society.
Fashion Pride is an exciting shopping event that will take place from March 10th through March 17th 2014. It will include fabulous shopping, fashion shows, entertainment and events to raise funds for both the Second Pride main festival in June and ACT.
Marcus Lefevre has generously donated the use of one sim for the Fashion Pride event. We are grateful for his generosity.

As we begin moving forward, I am a bit overwhelmed by the response from generous designers and grateful for the attention we’ve received for our cause. With our sponsors, partners, bloggers, and designers, we are sure to have a very successful event. We are now two weeks away from opening Fashion Pride to the public and I’m so excited to see what exclusive creations our designers provide while we raise funds for AIDS Committee of Toronto. We have an exciting week planned, complete with plenty of shopping, a fabulous fashion show, dancing and entertainment, and we’re looking forward to having you be a part of it.
Since 2005, Second Pride has worked with the LGBT community to bring together all members of the population in a spirit of camaraderie, to celebrate our victories, and to share vital information. The members of the board are volunteers and the organization is entirely non-profit with proceeds used to maintain the Second Pride sim, support special events, and encourage education of members about pressing LGBT issues. Every June, Second Pride creates a large Pride festival inworld, providing a gathering for everyone in order to help foster the spirit of community. The festival includes art, fashion, parties, and shopping. Additionally, the festival shares information about LGBT history. As a volunteer led, non-profit organization, Second Pride is grateful for the support of all members of the LGBT community and our straight allies as we work to raise funds for AIDS Committee of Toronto and move forward to another successful festival.
