Dream House – a virtual runway for LGBTQ+ people – discusses safety in VR

“Dream House” is a virtual runway built out of 3D abstract sculptures dipped in sunset hues. Created within Black and Brown LGBTQ+ communities to provide a refuge of belonging, safety and inclusivity for members.

Upon entry, you can participate in a “Grand March”, where movement is celebrated on the runway. Once you walk the runway, you descend into an ambient space with mind-bending architecture. Panelists of the Dream House panel discussed whether immersive technology can create a truly representational space that can help even the playing field.

The group also explored what safety in VR should look like for the LGBTQ+ community. Dr. Johns cited that in the last five years, “every year has been the deadliest year on record for trans women”. Trans women need to have a safe space within the metaverse.
