NFTs (non-fungible tokens) have a massive trend in 2021, even though they have been around since 2014. The NFT space, like most other societal domains, is not necessarily known for its inclusion and diversity. That’s especially true when it comes to LGBTQ+ individuals and artists being represented.

However, as everyone approaches Pride Month, artists are taking center stage. In Japan, MetaSamurai by Web3 Creative Studio 1BLOCK and global fashion company COACH will collaborate on a program to celebrate Pride month. MetaSamurai will be Japan’s First! 3D NFT project.

The month of June is committed to LGBTQI+ pride events in many countries, including Japan. For the opportunity, many NFT collections are paying honor to a collection of pride icons to raise funds for companies battling for the rights of gay, lesbian, transgender, gay, and intersex people.

The newest campaign has a motto of “Go all out for pride” to support the LGBTQIA+ community. The special edition NFT launch is part of a month of programming in Japan.

The said campaign was inspired by the self-expression and inclusivity of COACH. MetaSamuria is a genderless avatar project that will increase the diversity of love in every dimension. It also strives to celebrate spaces and communities where one can be their authentic selves aligned with the house’s campaign.

MetaSamuria is a collection of 8,888 unique NFT inspired by the mangas and samurai universes. Anyone can mint, collect, and enroll them in Japan metaverse that they are creating. They have different properties that are difficult to drop, such as eye color, mask, and weapons….
