STAND4LOVE: Editorial Clarity

Why Do I Support STAND4LOVE?

Simple really. Im 20 years old, and only in the last 2 years I have been openly gay. Well, I say ”openly”. I really mean, I have been open to a handful of people about being gay, and most of them are online friends. Some of my family know, not all. It’s not that they will disown me or be angry if I tell them that I am gay, not at all. It’s just hard for me to say it when it really shouldn’t be that hard of a thing to do, right?

I denied the fact that I was gay to myself for years, even though I knew deep down and quite an early age I was. I don’t think it is right for me to feel this way. Afraid to tell family and friends who I really am. What kind of world is that, where we cannot even be open to the people closest to us, who brought us up? Its ridiculous. The industry I eventually want to get into, Entertainment, is a mixed feeling for me. There are plenty of gay people who are successful in the entertainment business, however, the way that News reporters go about exploiting the fact that someone is gay, or spreading rumours that someone is gay…really scares me. If Justin Bieber wrote a press release tomorrow announcing he was gay, can you imagine the reaction? Why should something so natural, get a reaction like it does in todays society?

I support STAND4LOVE because I do believe that one day in the near future, everyone will be able to love anyone, openly and free with no worries about what people will think of them or how they will be judged. There will always be Assholes in this world yes, it’s just not giving a damn about those few individuals and accepting who we are, and being as open as we want about it. We all have the right to live a happy life, we all have the right to fall in love with that one special person, no matter what sex they are. Love is an amazing thing, it’s what makes the world go round. I’m gay and i’m proud of it, and one day I know I will be 100% comfortable with showing it. Awareness Campaigns like this help, because it shows the amount of support people give, which makes me feel there is nothing to be ashamed of. I guarantee after this experience, I’ll be different…and for the better. I hope you are too, and I hope you also give your support no matter what sexual orientation you are. It’s all about the love.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I STAND FOR LOVE, Do YOU???

STAND4LOVE: COMING SOON….

STAND4LOVE

http://stand4love.wordpress.com/

It feels a little strange to promote Marriage Equality when I’ve just recently been single in both lives, but this project is something I am passionate about and strongly believe in. I hope one day to marry the one I love and be able to build a life together that is recognized by the law. I believe nothing else should matter but the love two people share and they should have the right to express and bind that love in marriage.

Please visit the site if you want to participate or give your support. Follow the link above. I thank you in advance for your help.

It is TIME!!!! STAND4LOVE.

STAND4LOVE

For over a year, I have been on the process of launching an Equal Rights Awareness Charity in Second Life in the belief that two consenting adults should have the right to love and marry regardless whether they are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered or Straight. I was set to launched last summer (Free2Love) with the help of friends but to be honest I was always afraid. What if no one listens or worse, be humiliated and attacked for something I believed in? I waited and wondered that somebody should be doing something about this. Then I realized I AM SOMEBODY. I’ve been taught that NO ONE WOULD LISTEN IF YOU DON’T SPEAK UP. You can’t just sit on your butt and expect people to open their minds. If I can just open only one mind and make him/her realize that two people should be able to love and marry, then I have achieved my goal. If President Obama can risked his Presidency by supporting Gay Marriage, then I am here STANDING UP 4 Love and I hope you will join me as well. 🙂

Each one of us has the right to liberty, justice and the pursuit of happiness. Everyone has the right to love and be loved in return. GAY, LESBIAN, STRAIGHT, TRANSGENDERED or BISEXUAL…..Sexual Orientation or Race shouldn’t Matter. The FREEDOM to LOVE is fundamental as the FREEDOM to BREATHE. Two adults should have the right to love without discrimination and intolerance. Marriage should be available to any loving couple. Let’s end hatred and discrimination now.

STAND 4 LOVE is an awareness project set to launch this summer 2012 to promote the visibility and rights of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Straight couples. It will be a picture campaign in Second Life to spread awareness. I am planning to published all the pictures in the CSLTM/ URWORLD blogs as well as in the STAND4LOVE Facebook and flickr. I will take the best pictures with the best message and bind them in a book to publish in SL & Issuu. I am looking for supporters and sponsors in this project. I am not looking for money or donations. Just some help to spread the word. If you are a photographer and would like to help take pictures, it would be awesome. If you are a blogger and would like to spread the message in your blog, we love you for it. If you would like to join the efforts and truly believe in the cause, we would love to have you. Contact RicoRacer Flux or Editorial Clarity. 🙂

OUR SPECIAL GRATITUDE TO OUR SPONSORS SO FAR:

AVENUE, BOSL, MANIERA, The FASHION TELLER, UrWORLD.

PS: We are working on the LOGO at this time. We will be set to launch in a few days.

MEET MVW Mr. Luxembourg 2012: Metos Beaumont

METOS BEAUMONT

Second Life has been part of my existence for 5 years now, with a contantly renewed fascination. As it transformed and evolved, so did my path in the metaverse, going from a mere explorer enjoying the pleasure of various sims to a DJ and a builder. I have not seen it all, far from that, and entering the SL fashion world is one of those transformations. I made my entrance through the small door by djing for BOSL Radio, observing and learning from all those designers, creators and models. This is who I am, RL and SL, a curious frenchie always interested in new things.
I joined Mister Virtual World as a personal challenge, to push my own limits in terms of styling, building, exporessing my personality through an outfit. I hgonestly don’t know what I can bring to the competition aside from my own personality: cheerful, dynamic, imaginative and my own personal belief of what a Mister should be like.
If I win MVW, I would use it to promote the creation on Second LIfe. All forms of creation: fashion, visual arts, music and even litterature. Second Life is a wonderful place for arts and creation and if fashion and music have already taken that amazing importance on the Grid, other form of arts can be pushed on display for everyone to see and recognize.

RicoRacer Flux: Killing Me Softly…

Killing Me Softly…

MODEL & PHOTOGRAPHER: RicoRacer Flux

FASHION: 

I’ve been wanting to do a fashion blog on this song by Roberta Flack “Killing Me Softly”. It is one of my favorite songs because it is tender and relatable. Have you ever heard a song that just speaks to you? Some songs are like that just like fashion. I wanted to create a look that is casual but chic and stylish….something a modern musician would wear. This COCO black leather jacket with the gold trim collar is perfect. It is simple with its clean lines yet elegant. I really love the Gold trim on the collar; other colors are also available like black or silver. The super sexy Tableau Vivant see-through shirt is a nice contrast to the clean lines of the jacket. I really love mixing and matching contrasting textures..makes it interesting. The stylish SWAT pants is also from Tableau Vivant. Check out the realistic folds along the length of the pant legs. Necklace is from one of my favorite jewelry store in SL: Rozoregalia. I might not be able to kill you softly with a song, but I hope I killed it in style. 🙂

MUSIC: Killing Me Softly With His Song

LYRICS:

Chorus:

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

[Chorus]

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

[Chorus]

He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn’t there
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song.
