Rainbow Alley

Rainbow Alley

0 INK

In the LGBTQ Oasis of the harsh and unnerving Colfax mainstreet in Denver, Colorado, trouble always seems just around the bend. So what's your story?

936 readers have visited Rainbow Alley since LookAliveSunshine created it.

Introduction

Image
Image


Image
Established in 1993, Rainbow Alley came first in the basement of a minister in Colorado who saw homeless and lgbtq youth too often go ignored. He instituted weekly get togethers, called the What’s Your Story Group, for youth who fell somewhere on the LGBTQA spectrum. He met once weekly in his basement and things went well; more interest gathered and through the years Rainbow Alley has moved into its own building and is open 24/7 for any and all LGBTQA needs, from support, to STD screening and free birth control, to monthly drag shows, to a constant stream of new people dropping in, checking it out, becoming regulars and friends of those already involved.
That being said, the world outside Rainbow Alley is no field day; as liberal as its bubble is, it’s plopped down with the building’s front right on Colfax Avenue, one of the meanest, leanest, and straight up most dangerous streets in America, as well as being the longest continuous one. And the kids who attend support group and the art programs and who just chill at Rainbow Alley have got more problems than finding their bus stop on Colfax; from taking more than the prescribed dose to how much their mom or dad hates them being gay. We see it here in the oasis of our modern desert, Rainbow Alley; each has their own story, so what’s yours?

Image
Rainbow Alley is a building of three floors right on Colorado’s most famous street, Colfax, which lies at the heart of Denver, only an hour’s drive from the mountains if traffic’s in your favor. Denver is host to many, many things. Restaurants, malls, schools, everything. If you need any help with history or the area, don’t hesitate to PM me.
Open for free to anyone between the ages of twelve and twenty-one and who considers themselves part of the LGBTQA community, Rainbow Alley is a large square building with a sequence of rainbow dots on the streetside, a door on streetside and the side of the building facing the parkinglot and an alley between it and the pizza joint next door where the kids who (aren’t technically supposed to be smoking on Rainbow Alley property) smoke go to light up. It’s consisted of office spaces on the uppermost (second) floor, event space on the main ground (first) floor, and 24/7 hangout space (with dj gear, a kitchen, a tv, video games, and a billion other awesome things) in the basement.
The Center is open 24/7 with events in the following sequence:

General Rules:
We will start when we have at least two males and at least two females claimed and submitted.
Respect is a necessity OOC.
Reservations will last 48 hours.
WIPs can remain WIPs for an additional 72 hours before forfeiting the right to the position IF someone else wants it.
If you are inactive for more than three days without notice of an impending absence, your character will be deemed either killable, dead, abandoned, or missing, as the plot demands.
Try not to ignore all interactions which aren’t romantic.
I will trust your judgement on post length! If you're having a bad day, or just can't pull together a long post, that's fine, if you can, good! It's all up to you.
On that note: Romance is encouraged, as is friendship, and rivalry and hate (IC, of course).
For characters or actions (even a lot of posting!) I like, I’ll be game-mastering in some super secret special prizes (like special items!) which I’ll work out with you OOC, probably over private message, and then I’ll write an event for your character IC.

Character Rules:
Because there are so many open slots, I encourage taking as many characters as you can handle! There isn’t a wordcount so there isn’t an increased number of words you must achieve if you take more characters, and I may even give some super secret in character prizes if you take more characters.
If you play more than one character, please plan on having at least one male. Males seem to be sorely lacking on this site.
Face Claims must not be cartoon, anime, or any other sort of drawings.
I’d really rather you didn’t change any of the information under their photos, but if you absolutely must, ask me privately first.
Please, no special powers unless discussed privately with me in depth. I likely will not allow any. This is a realistic roleplay, mostly.
Experimentation is encouraged! Play a character you wouldn’t usually play if you can/want! [If you have read the rules please put your favorite song somewhere in the character sheet, and make sure to denote that it’s your favorite song and not the character’s or the character’s theme song (unless they’re the same).] So is anything you think might differentiate your character from your average one.

Current In-Character Date is September 10th. Current weather is sunny and mostly warm, becoming chilly in the evening and morning..

Re: Rainbow Alley

Yep! You can have him, Colors, and that's fine, BBS :)

Re: Rainbow Alley

Hey, can I make her a photography nerd instead of a music nerd? I'm just more of one myself and it's easier for me to have her be crazy about photography than for her to be crazy about music.

I'm putting that in her profile, so just let me know if you want me to change it.

Re: Rainbow Alley

Can I reserve male 5?

Re: Rainbow Alley

@BBSweetie
Yep! You can reserve her. I'll put you down now. And pregnancy/whatever's up to you! She's your character =33

Re: Rainbow Alley

May I please reserve the bisexual music nerd? The girl? "Ahem...we prefer geeks XD"

This looks really good, I can't wait.

Would it be possible for my character to be pregnant?

Re: Rainbow Alley

Yes to both of you! I'll put you in now.

Re: Rainbow Alley

May I reserve the NonBinary2|Bi-Gender please?

Re: Rainbow Alley

Could I please reserve female 2?
