    Refinery29's AltMoji keyboard is all about creating new conversations around sex, inclusivity, and body positivity. From rainbow lips and bloody tampons to talk bubbles — "Yaaass!" included — there are icons to represent all the things you really want to say.

    Last weekend, Refinery29 hosted 29Rooms, an immersive funhouse of style, culture, and technology. As is the case with AltMoji, each of the interactive rooms opened up new discussions about self-expression, body positivity, LGBTQ pride, and other issues of inclusivity.

    29Rooms — Refinery29’s magical art and fashion funhouse — is back for its second year, kicking off during NYFW, from September 9 to 11. We’re bringing our commitment to women claiming their power to life, through the event’s theme, “Powered by People.” To celebrate this sense of possibility, we’ve curated content that embodies our theme and pushes you to do more — start the conversations you want to hear, make change. We built our dream world and want to inspire you to power your own. For more information on the 29Rooms event and our initiative, click here.

    The "Show Your Pride" room was full of posters created by artist Kate Moross, with sayings that included "Love is Love" and "Live Let Love." The giant neon rainbow that arched over them added to the magic.

    The line was out the door for "Panda-Monium" and for good reason. Can you imagine anything better than jumping in a ball pit full of inflatable pandas? We didn't think so. Everyone felt like a kid again after checking out the Nicopanda fantasy world.

    Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation collaborated on the "#ShoutOutKindness" room, where you were encouraged to doodle and draw all over the walls. By the end of the weekend, there was barely any blank space left.

    "Just Dance," a room created in collaboration with Tinashe and Phhhoto, had a reactive LED floor. Your movement literally created the club-like ambience, since the floor lit up beneath your feet.
