From the press release:
"Oh Boi! Magazine is pleased to announce its first major advocacy event Oh Boi! The EVENT Aug. 7-14. The EVENT aims to raise awareness of the lesbian, gay, and transgender (LGBT) community, specifically to raise awareness surrounding the discrimination against the bois of Second Life --- real life females living their Second Life as masculine/male avatars –- who face discrimination not only in the LGBT community, but the larger Second Life community as a whole.

    “Though openly hostile comments are uncommon, we still come across attitudes that hint at a subtler form of bigotry,” Oh Boi Editor-in-Chief Adrianne Sautereau said. “Sadly, this passive discrimination is also present in the LGBT community. Before the rest of the world can accept us for who we are, we need to learn how to be more accepting. It has to start with us.”

    Oh Boi! The EVENT is a week long event including multiple promotions: three fashion shows, all of which are either communities bois or fashion models in support of the cause and a femme show; multiple live performances; poetry night; a sponsor hunt; Broadway nights and a Mad Pea Productions circus, which will be up and running throughout the event."
