How Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Fur

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Furry fandom created itself. No single entertainment franchise or fan genre claim credit for the amazing growth and popularity of our fandom. People discovered furry via many routes: animation, anime, funny animal comics, art, video games, costuming, friends, or just a random internet search.

Joe Strike discovered furry fandom in the late 1980’s when it was completely unknown to the world at large and a thousand people at most were active participants. He’s watched it grow over the past 25 years into the worldwide phenomenon it is today; he’s writing Furry Nation, the true story of the fandom’s birth and the first furs who made it happen.

Every fur has his or her own story of how they discovered the fandom. For many it was the first time they realized their personal, private interest in anthropomorphic characters that no one else could possibly share—was in fact shared by thousands!

Come share your “I’m not the only one!” moment with other furs and discover how similar—and how different—our stories are.
