Pride Finale with Donna Summer on Saturday



Concluding London Pride and leading us rather neatly into the 'Disco Season', Saturday's finale is Donna Summer.

Five times Grammy Winner, Donna Summer was the first international artist to have three albums in the chart at the same time.

After her death in May 2012 she was posthumously named the "undisputed queen of the Seventies disco boom".

If you like Pride/Disco, then this is the event for you!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL.

Come and enjoy Donna Summer the Disco Sensation here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/134/105/23

London Pride Weekend





All things being equal, this weekend we were due to have a tie-in event to London Pride in RL.  As you know, all organised events are currently cancelled in the Real World, so we will have to amuse our virtual selves in Second Life.

London City invites you to camp it up with us and wear your Pride colours with, urm, Pride!

Throughout the weekend we have some great entertainment lined up for you, kicking off this afternoon (Friday) with our first Pride Weekend Party and Madame Bailey's Gay Anthems in Lala's from 1pm SL time.

On Saturday the main Pride Party will feature Party Anthems and Donner Kebab-Summer in Concert right after Worlds End (On The Road) from 11am SL.

All we need is your gorgeous selves to join us.  Please bring copious amount of alcohol, cos this is going to be thirsty work!

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

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!

Pride continues with Erasure on Saturday



Jan loves a bit of Pride.
Back in 1985, singer/songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter Vince Clarke formed the band Erasure.

Always popular with the LGBT club circuit, the band still performs today to a more mainstream audience.  They are best known for the songs, Oh L'amour, Victim of Love, Blue Savannah and A Little Respect .

Enjoy a tribute to Erasure here in London City on Saturday.  Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL time.  Teleport: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/95/104/23

Margarita Pracatan at PRIDE in London City



Margarita Pracatan is a Cuban singer who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of a beautiful ballad performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat.

Now as part of London PRIDE she  performs a breathtaking show with an unusual orchestra.

A show not to be missed!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

Check out the video from Margarita's first trip to London City:
