Boston Globe: Furries are finally having their moment.

Furry Weekend Atlanta: Journalist gets it.
“I was fascinated to meet people who are so invested in a niche, often ostracized interest. It’s hard, emotional labor to love anything society labels uncool – teens everywhere can attest.

Escapist Magazine: COSPLAY DOSSIER – Why I Love Furries. A wonderfully positive piece – there’s a lot of those lately, and who’s complaining?
