First Saturday: Avatar Pride Parade

First Saturday!

CIRCUIT LA CORSE, MEEWALH SIM, SECOND LIFE MAINLAND, 5 January — The growing “army” of avatars among us represent a new class of identity, or virtual identity. Avatars have tremendous abilities, but no rights. There is no better way to have a voice than to speak up, no better way to be seen than to rise up, no better way to celebrate the diversity of who-all we are and can be, than an Avatar Pride Parade.

For VB37 – Sitting is the New Smoking, we mapped out a 5k walking course through 21 regions of the Second Life Mainland, and with a Start/Finish line at Circuit La Corse. Since we already have this wonderful, exactly 5km course mapped out, I propose a 2 lap or 10k pride walk. The entire course only has a single “turn” you have to make, and this time we’ll station someone there to make sure walkers don’t go the wrong way! 😀

As a virtual public artist my work invites avatar communities to express their identity, explore their culture, and demand their civil rights.
