As humans, we are all here trying to figure out who we are every day. The process can be intimidating, mainly if it’s something to do with our core self-identity. For some, it could even be more daunting to try to figure it out yourself - and the possible outcomes/consequences that follow
It is a hazy area where most people barely know or are aware of the true meaning that stands for LGBTQ+. Thus, The Kiki Lounge is a safe space in the form of a lounge where visitors can chill and hang out here with each other.
As inviting as it gets, Alan, the world builder, collaborates with Tajasuka for some part of it, to build a warm, tropical wooden house where people can mingle. It can also become a world to learn more about the LGBTQ+ for people from outside the community.
As we explore, there’s a wall where we can find a colourful flag pin that symbolises the difference of each , and some historical tidbits where visitors can explore . 🏳️🌈
The main common room is in such a mood, especially if we want to have pleasant and enriching discussions. They have open communities to meet up now and then, as they are very relaxed, friendly, and warm. As the host doesn’t hesitate to feed my curiosity with a clear explanation of the topics, I feel so welcomed. I can see why this place has become a safe space for everyone to share their thoughts and be more aware of the community.
Aesthetically, it is a warm tropical space! We can also watch entertaining content on the screen wall from the indoor bar. As you walk down towards the beach, we can see a very inviting pool, or you can sit around the campfire.
You can also see a vast ship waiting in the middle of the sea that can be on boarded! The vessel is made beautifully, and it has the vibe of a tropical Caribbean ship. But nothing can beat the serene landscape of a full moon that surely can hypnotise us. For me, it is pretty romantic even ❤️✨ I love it!
It’s quite an eye-opening experience. As a person outside the community, I can learn so many new things - as there are new terms that I can keep in my vocabulary. We, humans, tend to forget that differences make us unique and only communication can bridge us. Supporting each other is essential, but first, we must understand each other - as we empower each other and motivate us to move forward and grow.
Just like what Mama Ru said, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?” Amen to that, and let’s have a kiki! 😘
