LnL is happy to announce that we'll take part in the 2014 World Goth Fair, which will take place between May 15 (noon SLT) and June 1 (midnight SLT). As in previous editions, the World Goth Fair is an annual Second Life event, officially sanctioned by the organizers of the World Goth Day to benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is a UK based charity that was founded after the brutal murder of Sophie Lancaster, a young woman killed for being a goth.
From the Foundation's website:
"Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established and it became a registered charity in 2009.
The Charity. (number 1129689)
The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
*To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
*To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
*To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from alternative subcultures”or Lifestyle and Dress"
