Hallelujah, It's Raining Tauren!
I know we've got a ton of World of Warcraft addicts hanging out on JF, so I figured I'd post about this here. :D June's here already, so it's that time of year again for LGBTQ Pride Month all around the world. And WoW's no exception!
Proudmoore-US's own Spreading Taint and Stonewall Family, the two largest LGBTQ guilds on WoW, are teaming up again for the 6th Annual Proudmoore Pride! Horde and Alliance, LGBTQ and allies alike from across WoW are all invited to help us celebrate Pride in style in Azeroth, on June 19th! This year's theme is the Last Dance, considering Cataclysm is going to blow up our parade route. (Maybe queer folks really are bringing the apocalypse! XD)
There's going to be a pre-parade meetup/party at Camp Taurajo (Horde) and Theramore (Alliance) at Noon PST, then we'll meet in the middle of the Barrens and march to Ratchet, finally taking the boat to Booty Bay (where else?) for a HUGE dance party. There's also fun contests and prizes, as well as a streaming music station for those of you who just can't do a Pride event without thumping house tunes. XD
Proudmoore is a PvE server, so you won't have to worry about PvP griefing. We do have security teams from both guilds who will ensure that homophobic douchebags of either faction can't grief NPCs to disrupt the proceedings, and also to protect any lowbies from stray high level mobs. Though, in my experience, we get very few if any trolls. Our server is the unofficial LGBTQ realm, and has a ton of awesome straight allies who are really supportive.
Party-goers from other servers can join a special guild for guests for the day. Both Taint and Stonewall will have these, so guests from neither faction will be left out.
All the details can be found at http://www.proudmoorepride.com. There's also videos of previous Pride events so you can get an idea of what to expect. I'm also a member of both guilds, so if you have any questions the site doesn't cover, feel free to drop me an in-game message on Leilandra (Horde) or Aishwaria (Alliance). (Horde is my home faction though, so keep that in mind.)
