If you prefer to get your virtual Goth on then Second Life has lots to offer! The world Goth Fair is the official Second life event running from May 15th -May 31st on Cursed & Port Seraphine -two Sims packed with shopping and hosting musical events to benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
Sophie Lancaster was tragically murdered in 2007 for simply being different! She and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were brutally attacked whilst walking in Stubbylee Park in Bacup, Lancashire in the UK, she was only 20 years old. The young couple were attacked by youths who took exception to the Gothic attire favoured by Sophie and Robert. Robert survived his injuries but following almost 2 weeks in a coma in Hospital Sophie tragically lost her fight. The foundation set up to honour this beautiful young woman is dedicated to promoting acceptance of alternative lifestyles and human diversity and is very deserving of your support! I therefore urge you to go along to the World Goth Fair to dance and shop! As it is World Goth Day today Club Gothika Mobile Unit is hosting 14 straight hours of Music 7 sets and 7 DJ's for your listening pleasure @ Cursed – so dig out the Goth gear and lets go party!!!!!!!
