Stand 4 Love

Most of of us know that life is no walk in the park and that challenges will inevitably be thrown across our path as we take this journey.  But there is no justification in the whole wide world for discrimination in any form whatsoever, yet discrimination in one form or another has been part of society throughout time.  I am South African and white at that and have lived through being made an example of by the world because of the government policies that were in place.  I am glad to say that those policies are no longer there.  But actually the rest of the world had no right to ostracize South Africa, how does that saying go, ' people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones...'  What it has done for us though is give us the most liberal and all encompassing constitution.  

RicoRacer Flux has started a campaign to promote non discrimination when it comes to love.  This campaign is called Stand 4 Love.


Each participant will take a picture of themselves in a plain (white or black) background then add the Stand4Love Logo. Feel free to copy the logos in this page or ask us in-world. Put a message of support as well as your SL name and/or Title/Business (Optional) in the picture. If you have a business in SL, you may put your business logo as well in the picture. PLEASE MAKE THE PICTURES 1024×1024 or 512×512 in size. All pictures received will be published here in this blog as well as CSLTM and UrWorld blogs. It will also be promoted in Stand4Love Facebook page and Flickr group. We will take the best pictures with the best message of support and put it in a Stand4Love book to be published in Second Life and Issuu. Please Join us. Submit your full permission pictures to RicoRacer Flux or Editorial Clarity. Submit them before July 15, 2012 to be included in the book. Thank you.



If you want to participate in this campaign, please let me know. All you need to do is help spread awareness through your pictures. Photograph yourself and your friends who support the cause. Follow the instructions above. If you can help photograph others too, it would be fantastic.



If you can help us advertise STAND4LOVE in your blogs and put our URL in your links, we will do the same under the staff page. Please help us promote marriage equality through your amazing blogs. Feel free to put the logo in your flickrs and facebook.



Anyone who does the project above is considered a supporter and their names will be posted under The Supporter Page and their picture submission will be published in this blog. If you are a designer or business owner in Second Life, we would love to have your support as well and we can put your logo in our supporter’s page. 


In South Africa you are permitted to marry whom ever you so choose, so now it is time for the rest of the world to take a leaf out of OUR book....

Bravo Rico, I hope that you achieve what you have set out to achieve.
