Tina at Pride





Starting off a month of London Pride, is Tina!

Born Anna Mae Bollock and best known as Tina Tuna, her musical career got going in the 1940s.

Tina and loving husband Ike Turner had a string of notable hits, River Deep Mountain High, Nutbush City Limits and Proud Mary and enjoyed their success with cigarettes and whisky and wild wild  women.

However, behind the scenes Ike was knocking seven shades out of poor old Tina and they split up in 1976.  Five years later, after getting rid of her junkie husband, Tina hit super-stardom with Let's Stay Together, Private Dancer and What's Love Got To Do With It.  A legend came into being.

Enjoy Tina's most famous hits this weekend, here in London City.

A Linden Launch for Pride 2019




Last night, The London Pride 2019 launch party was held in Madame Lala's.  Wonderful to see so many of you sporting Pride colours to get the festival under way.


Thank you to some of our Linden friends who helped get this season rocking. Patch, Kristin and Dottie got London City's Pride off to a flying start.

 
 
London Pride moves to the main Concert area today at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) for the start of the Saturday shows, beginning with Tina Tuna for Pride!

The contest is unsurprisingly, Best in Pride!

LONDON PRIDE FESTIVAL BEGINS!




Celebrate Pride Festival throughout June in London City.

Top Turns this year include, Erasure, Tina Turner, Pet Shop Boys, Diana Ross, Donna Summer and more!

With Concerts every week, daily club events and Pride Memorabilia to collect, we think you'll agree that our 10th Pride here at London City is the best one yet!

With London City now an official Community Gateway, many newer residents will probably not have experienced this festival in-world before.  You can see what to expect at London City Pride, from the links below showing some of our previous Pride events:

Pride 2012    Pride 2013    Pride 2014    Pride 2015

The Festival gets under way on Saturday 1st June with Tina!

Don't forget to check notices from all the London City clubs throughout the Pride season for great events, especially from Madame Lala's, our longest running gay/trans club celebrating its 9th Birthday.

You don't have to be gay, lesbian or trans to enjoy Pride with us.  It's a festival or freedom for open minds.  So get shopping for some great costumes.   It is positively inexcusable to looks drab!

Celebrating 50 years since decriminalization




To all those who turned out for the Pride Parade in RL London yesterday, thank you for celebrating this landmark event.

With social attitudes so utterly changed in the UK, where it hasn't mattered a jot in many years who you love, it is sometimes hard to believe that this was once a crime and remained unacceptable long after abolition.

30 thousand people took to the streets of London yesterday to celebrate 50 years since the decriminalization of homosexuality.   Whilst it remained a taboo subject for many years after, the British open and inclusive society we find ourselves in today, has evolved so much in the past 20 years.  One can only hope that these frontiers of freedom will one day be accepted the world over.
