PHB Parties

Recap: PHB’s Pride Palooza πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ₯³

Howdy, Pridetropicans! Earlier last week we rallied our lovely readers to join us for our second party celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, the PHB’s Pride Palooza. We had a gay ole time! πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ

While we recognize the surrounding nuances of opinion regarding LGBTQ+ topics, here at the PHB, we are safe space and believe everyone should be shown kindness and respect no matter who they love or how they identify. That’s why we had this party and why Pride Month is celebrated all around the world.

All the attendees gathered in the Blast-Off Arcade to go head-to-head in Star Link, Balloons, and Sky Dive. I had a pretty good winning streak, myself, though I will admit I lost a couple of times.

Digital doodles and a fair amount of disconnections from switching tabs away from Poptropica also made the night eventful. It wouldn’t be a Poptropica party without the art and the server hiccups, now would it? Here are a few that didn’t make it into the recap collage:

Artwork by Ayman, BrittScarlet, Purple Paw, and Slanted Fish.

The PHC is always open for Poptropicans to talk and hang out, and we strive to be an inclusive place where everyone can have a good time.Β Pop in and join us anytime.

Pride Month’s not over yet, though. Spread love, extinguish hate, celebrate and enjoy it! Learn more about the ABCs of LGBT with the PHB, and don’t forget the theme for this month’s Community Creations is LGBTQ+; there’s still plenty of time to participate!

Rainbow releases made with Pride πŸŒˆβ˜‚️

Hey Poptropicans, a colorful store update awaits! β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›

June is Pride Month, and the Pop Creators are joining in the celebrations with various new store items! πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ As they shared on the official blog, “This week’s item inventory pays a special homage to the LGBTQIA+ community! Poptropica is a safe, inclusive space for everyone. It’s only fitting that we recognize and celebrate the diverse identities and backgrounds from those within the Poptropica community and the world.” Check out the technicolor threads at Adventure Outfitters:

The new rainbow raiments (Breezy Pride, Sporty Pride, and Rainbow Shoes) are available for free right now in the store! You can also find a few Pride-themed items on the shop floor: a rainbow beanbag and rainbow heart poster for your clubhouse, and the Rainbow Ride hoodie.

The Creators’ Blog mentions the Rainbow Kite, but this doesn’t seem to be in the store. However, the kite was released as a member gift in May, which makes it an unlikely candidate to be a store item so soon in June.

Plenty of other hues are available in-store too, with noteworthy new items like the Volleyball Jersey and the Cat Traveler Pack!

Plus, pets get plenty of fresh style options too β€” including a shark fin, flowery bandanna, snorkels, and more! With the recent return of the Colorizer (for pets too) in the character screen update (RIP Costumizer), you can go back to giving your pet the glow-up they need.

Anyway, all this colorful gear is going to go great with our Pride Palooza coming up this Friday at 8 pm Eastern! We look forward to some fun times with everyone at the Arcade and on the PHC or PHB comments. πŸ₯³ And if you’re new to the whole Pride conversation, check out the ABCs of LGBT with the PHB guide, complete with fantastic Poptropica fan art!

🌈 Be proud of who you are, and pop on, Poptropicans! 🌀
