Welcome to the Out and Proud Community an Opensimulator based virtual world space for the LGBTQ+ community based on the Opensim Life Grid. A place to meet up, socialise and do things together in a shared virtual environment from where ever you are in the world. The only requirements are to be respectful to everyone, to be fully inclusive to all gender identities (including cisgender people) and sexual orientations (including our straight allies) and be a sociable member of the Out and Proud Community specifically and the wider Opensim Life community generally. All welcome, age and consent appropriate.

If you are an LGBTQ+ or allies who are interested in building virtual communities and projects get in touch. Out and Proud provides the virtual space the community decides what to do with it. It is important for LGBTQ+ people to have spaces where we can be and express ourselves without having to explain or justify ourselves. Out & Proud aims to a virtual safe space free from judgment.
