I’ve been thinking about doing a post like this for quite some time now. Considering that it’s Pride Month, and this is something that is close to me, I wanted to share. The first weekend in June, I was lucky enough to make my way to Reno, Nevada for the Biggest Little Fur Con. This is the second year I have attended and its such an amazing time. 2016 was the year my fursona made it’s debut.
Aside from celebrating Gay Pride, I also fit into the Pup, leather and furry sections of our vast community. Now, not only did we have an extensive collection of Furries, we also had a lot of pups there too.. I’m sure there were plenty of adult activities going on – but I did not partake in any. Although I did go and enjoy the adult section of the Dealer’s Den, where I was able to purchase a range of dildos all modeled after non-human parts. But more about that later.
As a Fox, I just enjoyed time with friends as well as making new ones… we did go-karting as well as mini golf, and dancing. I was able to watch my Fox Brother win 1st place in the novice category of the Dance Competition.
There were plenty of “adult” panels that we were able to take part of. Yes, there was a puppy panel and mosh as well as a pony panel. In the Adult Games panel, they were handing out bags of dicks, as well as condoms and other fun things.
Now, if you’re about to get all, “you damn pervert… fucking animals…” and what not, let me start off with already saying I had a co-worker in my real life job accuse me of being a pedophile. And I recovered and bounce back, made me proud to be a Furry and no… I’m not like that one on the CSI episode or whatever it is…. Yes, I’m in to yiff art and the bad dragon toys. and No, I don’t fuck in my suit and I definitely don’t have sex with bio-animals.
I’m more than happy to answer all questions about being a furry, but here’s a quick rundown, at least as far as I go: I identify as a fox… my fursona is a grey fox with a blue Mohawk. He’s a bit of a nerd, but also tries to be a badass. He loves sci-fi and cosplay, but also rides motorcycles and is into leather. My best friend is a Unicorn and the rest of the team is a wolfpanda and a foxalope. My family ranges from foxes to a werewolf… and everything in between. Family is used to describe all the other suits made by the same maker.
My real family and friends are super supportive and love the fact that I just have another outlet to express myself.
Don’t judge the furries… embrace us and get to know us. It’s a fun community to be apart of. If you are still interested in the Furry Community, there’s a couple of good documentaries out there… the best I’ve seen is FURSONA. I found it on Amazon Prime, but I believe it’s also out on Netflix.
