“Inside the furries: they’re people too”– from WTAE news in Pennsylvania:
Pittsburgh has always been a welcoming, accepting city for this fandom, and here’s to hoping it continues for this year’s Anthrocon. If you happen to see one of these NORMAL people in incredible costumes walking the streets of Pittsburgh, don’t be afraid to say hello.
Ad campaign with “Furries” ad found in copywriter’s portfolio.
A few months ago, this article got thousands of views – Mainstream advertising: “More and more, Furries are being hinted at in marketing media!” One of the ads for Mini in San Francisco had a provocative mention of Pride month and Furries. I didn’t know much of the context, until I found the entire campaign with brief comment from the writer . Many ads are in it, but he uses the Furries one as cover image. He captioned it: “Staying current on local events is key to showcasing our understanding of SF.” It would have been amusing to hear the copywriter’s pitch. I sent a few questions about the reaction, but sadly he didn’t reply. It’s good to know that furries have street cred.
Nasty little mockery of “furries” on Orange Is The New Black TV show.
