Yesterday we were given the news of the great loss to our community, our beloved Avacar Bluestar, who is also known as Private Radio, passed away on Friday.
Avacar was a pillar of our LGBT community for over eight years and will be greatly missed. His sims, Gay Fun World, Gay Fun Beach, The Gay Archipelago, The GA Sandbox, and Virtual Gay World, have been part of the Gay Archipelago since its founding. His continual endeavors to promote and bring the LGBT community together was his passion. He was a pioneer in many other virtual worlds including Avination, Inworldz, The Great Canadian Grid, GayNations, and OpenSim.
His contributions to the Gay Archipelago, this blog, Gay-WorldsNews, and our entire community are immeasurable. Avacar was a board member of the Fabrice Snook Foundation, events planning manager for multiple GA Summerfests and Winterfests, GA Communications Lead, “First Lady of the GA” (FLOTGA), participant in the Gay Archipelago International Fine Arts Tour (GIFT), the Fine International Arts Tour (FIAT), Second Pride, Mr. Nude GA, Vitamen shows, Miss Wigstock, Mr. Gay. SL8B, SL10B, SL11B, Vistas & Blossoms, contributor to GMP Magazine, a sponsor of Stand4Love, NoH8, a builder, content creator, shop owner, a DJ, host, owner of multiple clubs and mentor to numerous people.
Today we remember his wit, intelligence, passion, love, generosity, his kind spirit and unending devotion to his causes and to those he held most dear. Let us not forget what he taught us along the way, the largest forests have the smallest trees, everyone of us counts in more than one way.
He is survived by his parents, sister, brother, and family, as well as his long time partner, our former GA lead, Ricogenu. He will be missed by hundreds if not thousands of people throughout the world.
A memorial service in SL will be scheduled, we ask that you join us in sharing condolences to his family and his partner.
