About Furry Conventions
Furry conventions bring together people interested in anthropomorphism and furry fandom. Fans meet and participate in panels focusing on anthropomorphic art, crafts, music, and literature. Many attendees consider themselves "Furries", dressing in fursuits that range from full-body outfits to accessories like ears and tails. Furries are humans who find that their personality fits better with an animal than humans, and sometimes consider themselves spiritually aligned with these animals.
While a common misconception due to media portrayal, Furry conventions are not in any way about sex or fetishes. Events usually focus on arts, crafts, music, and literature. Some raise money for charity.
