The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is a UK based charity that was founded in the wake of the brutal murder of Sophie Lancaster, a young woman who was killed for being a goth.
From the website:
Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established and it became a registered charity in 2009
The aims and objectives of the Charity are as follows:
To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from “alternative subcultures” or “Lifestyle and Dress”
This year, all applications, info, landmarks, links, and other wonderments are being posted on the web at:

“Genre is a new monthly event that focuses on celebrating the different cultures within SL. With so many creators designing for these special communities, it was high time that they had an event of their own, not only bringing them and their talents to the general populace of SL, but also at a price everyone can afford. Each month a specific genre is chosen along with a theme to help inspire and unify the designers in their creations, with a price cap of 100L per item, each item being new and exclusive to the event (only for the duration of the event at which time you may release in your shop at regular price.) Starting on the 15th of every month and ending on the 12th, people will have a lil less than a month to visit the event.
For the month of May the genre will be Sci-fi.”
