Pride At Home

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to share a celebration of Pride month with the Pride at Home event. This region has a carnival atmosphere thanks to parade floats and decor, and we have an area with gifts and information about the LGBTQ+ community. I have deeply personal reasons for being a firm ally, and that will never change because I just genuinely believe that kindness and compassion are vital in this world. All of the gifts I'm sharing in this post are from the booths of generous designers who are helping us celebrate, and I am very grateful to each and every one of them. I make an effort to keep politics off this blog as much as I can, but it seems to me that loving our neighbors shouldn't be political. As a child of the 70s, I'm also a huge fan of rainbows, so there is a strong visual appeal here in addition to the respect for all humans. All of these gifts are completely free with no group tag required, so please be sure to spread the word to anyone who may be interested :)

For my first look of the night, I slipped on the Luas Dacil Dress Pride Edition, one of two free gifts found at their booth. This sexy strapless mini comes in sizes for Erika, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Reborn, and Reborn Juicy bodies. The modern pride flag's colors appear here with a fun leopard print, which I am loving! I also needed a little snack, so I nibbled one of the delicious lmndrp. - pride cookies (holdables) gift. There are two versions, the Love is Love versions shown here and another with the word PRIDE on rainbow icing, each with a bento hold as you can see above. Just think, here in SL all cookies are sugar free, gluten free, and calorie free so anyone can enjoy :)

Candy Kitten has a treat for us too, called *CK* Sabrina - pride free. The outfit is two pieces, top and skirt, each in sizing for Legacy, Maitreya, and Reborn mesh bodies. The top has detached sleeves and playful ruffles, while the skirt has lace panties built in. Both have a beautiful image of a rainbow above the word HUMAN, filled in with various flag's stripes as a touching tribute to all of us falling under the same umbrella.

Two gifts make an appearance here, so let's start from the top...which would be the SEKA's D-Pull Crop PRIDE 2023 GIFTIE. There are 3 versions, labeled as PRIDE1, PRIDE2 and PRIDE3 in the folder, all included in eBody Reborn, Kupra A/B, Kupra Flat, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Maitreya Flat, and Petite mesh body sizes. The notecard made me smile, explaining how the designer came up with the pride theme and added the LOVE nipple tapes for us :) They all go really well with the Belle Epoque - Pride Skirt gift, a low slung mini in frosty white with a gorgeous pair of rainbow wings on the rear. We receive sizes for eBody, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies in this thoughtful gift. Our observers receive a touch of booty cleavage ;)

Next I changed into the charming [ILAYA] gift called Beena Dress & Jacket~ {Love Is Love}. The dress and cropped jacket are both inky black, with the dress reading "Love is Love" in red on the front, and the jacket featuring a rainbow ombre hood. Each piece is provided in Legacy, Maitreya, Petite, and Reborn mesh body sizes, and we also get a materials HUD for each. I love a good t-shirt dress, casual and comfy which means versatility to me, and the jacket is a great addition if you go somewhere that might be a bit chilly.

My final look of the evening is the Female Pride Outfit by Rainbow Rhapsody, which also has a male version that is equally stunning and colorful :) The top and pants will each fit Freya, Gen X Classic, Gen X Curvy, Kupra, Kups, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Reborn, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with a 3 color HUD for the shirt. That lets us choose from black, white, or grey as our backdrop for the pride stripes on the front which have Love, Respect, Freedom, Tolerance, Equality, and Pride written across them, and the back reads "Spread Kindness around like confetti". I am all on board with that saying!! I was saying earlier that it costs nothing to be kind to people, but being unkind can cost that person more than we'd ever know. 

Whew, let the weekend begin! It was a heck of a week, and I'm still dealing with anxiety and stomach issues that might make my trip to the farmers market uncomfortable tomorrow, but I know last week I got through it and it was very worthwhile. It was hot today but should be about 20 degrees cooler when I go out, so that will be a nice relief. I hope you all have something fun planned for your weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
