The Knights of the White Lady (KWL or KotWL) is a guild on the Landroval server for Lord of the Rings Online. Our in-game address is 1 High Road, Highdore, Bree-Land. We are a group of mature (18+) individuals who enjoy being in a friendly and close-knit environment, a place where people of all backgrounds and sexual orientations (gay, straight, bi or transgender) can feel at home.
KWL is LOTRO's largest and best-organized gay / LGBT-friendly guild. It does not limit recruitment to LGBT people, but the guild aggressively enforces an environment that is supportive of them. The guild does not emphasize a play style such as "roleplaying" or otherwise, but is accepting of all play styles.
The guild is named in honor of Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan.
We chose Eowyn as a role model because of the way she rode to battle pretending to be a man, and had to later "come out" as a woman before defeating the Witch-King of Angmar. The guild's founder thought her bravery to be analogous to how gay people often have to hide who they are for a time before accepting themselves and coming out to society. She was therefore considered to be appropriate as the inspiration for the guild's name.
"But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Eowyn I am, Eomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him."
--Eowyn, confronting the Witch-King of Angmar at the Battle of Pelennor Fields (Return of the King, Book Five)
