In June 2012, the Stand4Love Campaign, headed by RicoRacer Flux-Clarity & Editorial Clarity-Flux, launched to raise awareness and show support of marriage equality.
The campaign had a tremendous amount of support and backing from people in Second Life. We had over 700 images of support telling us why they stand for love submitted to us and placed on our Flickr and in the blog. We had content creators of all kinds make unique items from T-Shirts to Pose Sets, from Support badges to pillows! We had amazing bloggers and photographers taking part and helping to advertise the campaign across the grid and the web. All this support made the campaign an amazing success and it something we plan to repeat, if not BETTER this year!
Starting from today, we shall make public the 2013 official logos for the Stand4Love Campaign, created by Anthony Audran. We have 2 variations, a Black and White version for you to use. You can begin taking your pictures as soon as the logos are made public, however please do not send them before JUNE 1ST. Below, are the official guidelines for the 2013 picture campaign. Please read them carefully.
