Venus Beach II – Ladies Only Venue

Ladies, there are two women only venues I frequent in Second Life, both which I plan to cover. Both have plenty of activities to keep you entertained in a fun women’s only environment owned by Laura Garmes and Avion Luminos.

Venus Beach II is a two region destination with much to do with dancing up the top with a weekly round up and changing dress themes, varying music styles and a relaxing chat as we discuss many things like music that’s playing.

When you arrive at Venus Beach II, the entry point will take you to many directions either by foot or teleport. Dancing areas(there are a few dancing areas) are at a short walking distance from the entry point.

If you prefer to walk to explore like I do, there is plenty to see and do as you take in the beauty of both regions here. Or you could select from the teleport board if you prefer. From dancing to shopping, driving, their amusement park, hopping to your death by sky dive should you not release your parachute which can be a bit messy so best you pull that cord so we can enjoy you alive.

With dances at Venus Beach II, I have attended dances covering themes such as food. Dress theme I have been to includes Halloween, rock, medical and mermaid. Yes, there is an underwater dance floor for mermaids as well. You just might get wet at Venus Beach II.

While Venus Beach II is a women’s only venue, you don’t have to be LGBTQI to visit. Bring your adult female avatar and get your wiggle on, maybe fly a hang glider or fly a plane.

Yes, I did mention flying.

There is a small airstrip with a panel to choose a temp rez plane to fly. Landing is the fun part so don’t forget to update your Second Life Insurance before you fly. You can also use one of your own aircraft.

And for you ladies who love driving hard and fast, there is a racing track, again with a temp rez selection of what to drive or rez one of your own. It’s at this location where you may take a parachute and leap 500 metres for the stunning view as you lower to the ground.

amusement park_001

Or come to Venus Beach II to play with friends or bring a date and let your hair down at the amusement park. With rides like dodgem cars, ten pin bowling and hair raising rides, you will have the time of your life.

There is so much to do here from mellowing to blood rushing fun. And if you are looking to meet new people, maybe meet new friends, come to Venus Beach II as everyone is friendly here.

And while you’re here, you might find something you would like to buy to wear. I recently bought myself a pretty dress.

Eclipse

If you have not heard of the Second Life related e-mag, Eclipse then I recommend that you have a look. I’ll admit to not having heard of Eclipse either but then again, I had not looked for any online magazine style publications. I learned of Eclipse when I was offered a place in their ‘From the Grid’ section which is a get to know someone style off the street type of report.

Story of Eclipse taken from their Facebook page;

ECLIPSE Magazine is dedicated to not only offering an aesthetically pleasing publication, but to also be considered a platform that offers rich and relevant content. Each month, we showcase resident’s and groups that have taken the concept of “your world, your imagination” to such great heights that they have impacted the culture and lifestyle of the Second Life community.

The above photo is of myself, taken by Wicca Merlin who is also the owner of Wicca’s Wardrobe. I have one of her corsets which fits as snug as a bug.

Having looked through the October and November issues of Eclipse, I have to say that this is a professional publication like most glossy magazines. Eclipse covers fashion, photography, get to meet people and what they’re up to.

November issue’s front cover features BVN Blogger & Vlogger Award for Blogger of the Year, Miaa Rebane.

This definitely a magazine worth taking your time to read.

African Modern Arts & Apartheid Museum

I would like to take you somewhere else in this article. A region which despite one of the venues covered having an horrific historical factor, this destination is one that is beautiful and relaxing to explore.

All three destinations covered in this article are owned by Seschmet whose love for her projects are felt at each venue.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

First stop is at African Modern Arts.

You feel warmly welcomed as you walk in through automatic doors where you’re met with a vibrant art display. What makes this Second Life art display different to what we’re use to seeing in Second Life is that every beautiful artwork are by artists in our real lives who have given Seschmet permission to show their work for us to enjoy. The only set back is that you cannot purchase any of the art on display. I’d load up a small truck with at on show if we could buy them.

My three favourites on display are on show in the above photo slide.

There are several levels accessed by stairs. There are is also a bar and a big connect four game. Perfect for young families to entertain young children.

Apartheid Museum

Apartheid laws were enacted by the National Party when they gained control of the South African Government in 1948, enforcing existing laws of discrimination and to seize control of South Africa’s economic and social system. A regime existing through the early 1990’s where Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela(byname Madiba) was elected as South Africa’s first black President.

Located in the same street as African Modern Arts is the Apartheid Museum where each floor level has photos to look at. These photos have no text explanations so visitors can leave with their own discovery. They talk for themselves without any text guidance.

Seschmet has created a museum that’s worth everyone’s attention.

Chelsea Market

While you’re visiting African Modern Arts and the Apartheid Museum, take the time to visit Chelsea Markets where there is plenty to do to relax and let your hair down.

There is a dance floor for social gatherings, a few games including a chess table, dining area and a hotel where you can rent a room. The menu on the window looks scrumptious.

I invited Luke Flywalker from SL Aviation Network to a game of chess. We started off with the pre-game stare down, ending in a stalemate. Who knew Luke could out stare a cat?

Transgender Remembrance Day 2017

Today I attended the International LGBT Center & Museum for Transgender Remembrance Day which was lead by Nicolette.

Held three times during the day so people from across the world could attend either of the scheduled programs, this was a solemn event as the names and details of their death were read out so they are remembered.

The following names and the details of their deaths were read out at the remembrance event.

A Total of 307 Transgendered people lost there lives this year. to murder. The numbers always rise as we move into the next year. The United states officially capped out at 25 trans people but as shown I expect that number to reach or possible surpass 29. Keep your thoughts on all of the lives impacted by their loss.

There is far too much hate given permission to be expressed as freedom of speech and as religious values. This should not ever be tolerated. Only by standing together and loving one another for who we are, can we overcome this hatred.

I am an ally of transgender people. You have my love and respect.

2017 Reindeer Collectables

Snapshot_002

It’s mid November which can only mean one thing.

That’s right, summer is coming!

It’s true. Summer is right around the corner and coming fast. Well, it is in the southern hemisphere.

Mid November also means we are close to late December festivities such as Christmas which will soon be all over the grid.

And venison. This also means venison will soo…

Sorry, Santa’s reindeer will be galloping across clouds and nibbling off lawns and carrots. Mmm hot sizzling venison. I mean, cute fluffy reindeer could soon be yours for free.

Snapshot_001

Just look at all those cute and fluffy reindeer on the lounge setting. Don’t you want to just cuddle one or snuggle up to all of them. Well, they can be yours. All of them could be yours but how?

Reindeer collectibles promo poster2

Check this information out…

How to get them:

They kind of work like a Gacha only they are Free! At each event we DJ, host, dance, perform or some of our close DJ friends do, we give away ONE of these, to everyone at the party. We give them twice so you can walk away with two of each. Adults only but those of you that only attend PG sims and/or have a childavatar can get them at Raglan Shire events with Peaches.

Also, there will be random pop up moments where we give away one at our sim, the Land of Rainbows, to everyone that visit during that time. Usually an hour. Those will be at random times, so to join those moments they’d have to be in our group secondlife:///app/group/597abbdc-d114-83a1-cac0-29a8263abd0a/about and watch for the notice about it. Or just visit the sim and get lucky!

The more parties /events you attend, the more likely you are to get a full set. Also, of course, these can be traded or even resold ( though we don’t recommend that, they are meant to be a gift, we can’t accept responsibility for resale or people getting angry at you for reselling a gift item). If you have a full set, we do offer a tradein to the copieable- no transfer version.

In the pack you will find the full set for you with no trans permissions, to use, blog, or just enjoy 🙂

Happy Holidays!

BLM’s Official Opening Party

Earlier this year I wrote a destination article on Blue Lagoon Naturist Estate(BLNE) created by Marcy with the help of her team. BLNE is now owned by Alan West as Marcy decided to return to her roots in running a marina where clothing is optional and furries are accepted. All people are accepted.

Tucked in behind Fiji Islands Airport and Malolo Island Marina, north of the Blake and south of Corsica and Gaeta V, the Blue Lagoon Marina(BLM) is located at Chalands Isle.

37631718934_1d9e8455c1_z

With 28 moorings and 3 houseboat parcels, long beach and access to Fiji Islands Airport and Malolo Island Marina by series of tunnels, Blue Lagoon Marina is easily accessed by sea and air. Boating into Blue Lagoon Marina is by heading east between Fiji Islands Airport and the AEB & Wings Tuarua Fiji Military Airport, then turn south behind the airport where you will quickly navigate to Blue Lagoon.

Facilities are moorings, parcels, a club house, beach and dance floor located at this laid back homestead region.

24472089548_2241fe5ff5_z

To officially open Blue Lagoon Marina on Saturday, 12 Noon SLT was the cheeky man himself, DJ Trey whose humour and music had all of us wiggling our wiggles in a vibrant atmosphere. And as a special treat, we were treated to some entertainment by live entertainer, TrickyLicks.

What a fun party we had with residents and visitors partying on until 2pm SLT. There was even a gesture call for an encore when the party came to a close. This was a full region as we partied hard. There was no rest for the wicked.

Come visit and relax at Blue Lagoon Marina. A relaxing clothing optional marina. You might never leave.

LGBT International Resource Center & Museum

38140859872_cfbff3bddb_z

In days of a rise of homophobic violence with a return of extremism of the religious right and what seems like permission to express hateful ideologies, it is important now than ever that there are resources for every person who identifies as LGBTQI.

I found the LGBT International Resources Center and Museum in Second Life’s destination guide which I am grateful for. Not just so I could visit but so those who are in need resources can access them. This destination is particularly useful in that it is available in  the safe environment of Second Life where people can express themselves as who they really are, and get to meet similar people.

As you travel along your way, there are rainbow balls on the ground with information regarding where you are. Click them to read in your local chat.

The LGBT International Resources and Museum is a multi level platform with a teleport pad to navigate where you wish to go. The entry point is at the resource centre where there are seating areas, three televisions with information playing and other information pinned on the walls.

 

History Walk

History Walk takes you on a walk on American LGBTQI history including Stonewall, the Rainbow House and Pulse night club. This walk will take you three levels by foot with plenty of interesting information.

37462851534_4e20cbc77c_z

The Transgender Memorial Statue To The Unknown

This memorial is dedicated to transgendered persons who were murdered for being transgender. Some people are listed as unknown.

Aspasia Art Garden

Take a walk through Aspasia Art Gallery to look at art on display. Many are for sale should you wish to have one in your collection. Maybe hanging on your wall at home or other location.

Museum

There is also a museum with real life people worth mentioning. I do not have a photo of the museum however they are included in the video embedded below. Take the time to look and read the information provided.

The LGBT International Resource Center & Museum is a destination I highly encourage everyone to take the time to visit and explore and learn. Not only for people who identify as LGBTQI but for those who are allies and everybody else to learn and understand so hopefully we can learn to get along with respect for one another.
