Love Ulaa

My item for ❤ Ulaa – please help Ulaa see her mom!

by Chiana Oh

truelovead

New canvas for the Love Ulaa fundraiser – inspired by the bond between parent and child.

Ulaa’s mother has been diagnosed with cancer and has been unable to see her daughter for 14 years, nor meet her grandson, due to distance, health and financial issues. Ulaa has been raising money for an urgent trip home on gofundme and now it’s time for the Second Life community to come together to show some love.

Love Ulaa has been organised by the fab Tracy Rubble, giving designers a chance to offer you some of their items with 50% or 100% of proceeds being donated directly to this worthy cause.

You can read more about the event on Tracy’s blog here or visit the gofundme page here.

The event runs from August 14th – 18th – with a party being organized at Rouge for the 16th
Please stop by if you can!

Stand4Love 2014

Stand4Love - Chiana Oh

Stand4Love is a fabulous campaign founded by RicoRacer Flux & Editorial Clarity.

Their mission statement:
“Our goal is to spread awareness that two consenting adults should have the right to love and marry regardless of their race or sexual orientation. If we can open someone’s mind and promote tolerance and equality, then our goal has been achieved.”
Read more, including details on how to get involved, on their blog.

Equality in love, indeed in all things, is something I believe very strongly in and it is my absolute pleasure to once again show my support and hopefully spread the word.

I can never talk about matters of equality without pausing to appreciate how incredibly fortunate I am.. I’m white, I identify with my birth-gender and, although I finally realised in my late 20s that I’m definitely bi-sexual, my few rl relationships have all been with men and therefore have always been deemed ‘socially acceptable.’ That doesn’t mean I’ve never been the target of prejudice but I’m well aware how much of it I escape compared to others.

And it’s because of, rather than in spite of, my ‘acceptable-ness’ (or whatever you want to call it) that I want to add my voice to campaigns such as this one. A few months ago one of my favourite webcomics, Robot Hugs, published ‘Privilege‘ and it explains what I mean much better than I ever could – I encourage you to take the short hop over to read the post, because it’s full of awesome, but the bit I really want to highlight here is this:

“Because social power dynamics have made my voice more important than others, I will use that voice for good.”

I think it’s crucial that I do, that we all do.. that we speak up for ourselves and others regardless of our own backgrounds, orientation, race, gender or any other part of that fantastic rainbow spectrum that makes us who we are. That we listen to those that need us to listen, that we treat every single person with equality, respect and love.

Especially love.

I also made a couple of gifts.. visit my store blog for your taxi!

The Artist

The Artist 1

This is going to be a picture-heavy post but I couldn’t resist because the colours and surroundings were so beautiful. I finally made my way to the stunning Noble sim as featured on Cait’s blog and, I’m sure, many others. It is absolutely gorgeous and I need to go back to take many more photos! A nice touch is that if you join the group you may rez objects – a very useful thing for bloggers! The group costs L$150 to join but I think that’s a more than fair contribution to make towards such a lovely place.

Several of the items I’m wearing are from The Gallery Gift Shop‘s anniversary event and hunt.. including this fabulous hat by Aniki and Mayhem Seetan of Azoury. It is so much fun to wear and the textures capture the light beautifully.. there are two colours available (black and gray) and both are for sale at The Gallery’s event for just L$79 each.

The amazing easel set is by Pandora Popstar of LISP – it includes various poses and let’s you ‘paint’ a picture over a certain amount of time (3, 9 & 15 minute options are included as are a wearable brush and palette). It’s really cool to watch the picture develop and, once completed, it gives you the image to place onto a canvas (also included). There are several pictures built in to the set but you also have the option of adding your own.. which is what I’ve done here.

I’m going to stop chattering now and just post the rest of the pics.. full credits are at the end of the post!

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

A Small Plot of Land

gallery/store/hangout/whatever .. not much to buy but plenty to explore.. come visit me! ❤

by Chiana Oh

I decided I really wanted a new home rather than spending my day standing in an empty platform – at the same time I thought I would bring back my gallery/shop. I didn’t want it to just be a store, though, as I don’t have much to put in it at the moment.. I’m still working on updating my old work and creating more. So I’ve made a series of little hangouts instead. Art and things will be dotted around and made available for sale as I make it.. there’s also a notice board at the main gate where you can take a look at my current events and subscribe for updates if you like and I’ll be setting the odd gift out when I get around to it. If and when I make more furniture I’ll probably add a more traditional store area but for now I think this…
