|The flamingos were very unhappy about this.|
From the gorgeous giant television (built by Mr Gracemount) parked surrealistically amid the gorgeous the Malaika Park Sims landscape to the gift gray mesh eye set provided by Jacks Rhys of VerseEye, Blithe SL Magazine's August 1st Launch Party was a prime example of what can happen when people come together to make exciting things happen. Our partnership with Blue Balls for the event meant special prizes, but it really seemed like everyone was there for the fun theme, music, conversation (and there was great conversation), and the cause. Thanks to our extra-generous crowd, Hedonism staff's willingness to donate 50-75% of the tips for their hard work to the cause, and funds received through a very active sploder, we were able to raise L$29,000 for the cause, an incredible amount for a two hour event. Thank you to everyone who donated.
Stay tuned for the release of the website version of Blithe SL Magazine (Issuu won't mess up the cover the way SL did). We expect to have that up soon. We're beginning work on our next issue of Blithe SL Magazine, due out October 1st, and are looking forward to bringing you more great stories on those who make the Second Life gay community so great.
