Collaborating with Polygonal Mind and Vegas City, Decentraland is heralding the return of Metaverse Pride 2023. This diverse and vibrant digital celebration of the global LGBTQIA+ community will take place for three days from June 27 – 29, enriching the deep-rooted history of Pride month.
Taking place for the third year running, this multicultural jubilation will showcase “bigger and better” virtual art installations, immersive experiences, live musical performances, prizes and LGBTQIA+ educational content. Attendees can partake in the festivities using their bespoke avatars and custom wearables, and can even create their own by participating in the wearable design contest.

Decentraland Pride 2023 to Help Strengthen the LGBTQIA+ Community
Alongside an interactive parade, the event promises to include panel discussions and educational workshops addressing LGBTQIA+ rights, advocacy and mental health under ‘The Ad Council’s Love Has No Labels’ campaign. Decentraland’s main aim is to provide a safe space for all attendees to share experiences, breaking down misconceptions and stigmas through open and honest conversations to foster a strong community that validates and recognizes such struggles.
“It is an honor to lead this year’s Metaverse Pride. By involving community members in the event’s organization and execution, we aim to foster a sense of shared ownership and unity within our virtual community,” commented Lara Dias, Partnerships Manager and Metaverse Pride Coordinator at the Decentraland Foundation, via a press release.
To participate in Metaverse Pride 2023, participants must create an account in the Decentraland Metaverse, create their own avatar and enjoy the dazzling floats and supportive engagements.
