Hello everyone, and Happy Pride Month!!
Each year, Pride is celebrated to honor the LGBTQIA+ community – raising visibility and championing validity. Pride is celebrated in June because of the Stonewall Riots, a series of protests and riots in June of 1969 that were in response to unethical raids of gay bars and clubs. Their bravery in taking a stand is largely considered to be the dawn of the modern LGBTQIA+ rights movement, and we continue to celebrate Pride in June as a result.
This month, we wanted to offer an opportunity to learn more about our diverse LGBTQIA+ community through a fun scavenger hunt! We have hidden 13 different Pride flag hearts around /Explore, each representing a portion of the LGBTQIA+ community. Your mission is to find all 13, collect a token from each, and then place them all in a chest to claim your prize! Simply modreq by the chest so that a staff member can verify your tokens and write down your name.
The deadline for completion modreqs is 11:59 p.m. Eastern on June 12th. Prizes will be awarded after the update, so don’t have to worry about not being able to transfer them to the new map!
Thanks everyone, enjoy the hunt, we hope you learn something along the way!
