Silicon Valley Pride invites furs – Fangcon makes history with Pride parade sponsorship.
by Patch O'Furr
“Furry Pride” is redundant when you’re a talking animal. There’s no way you can’t strut your stuff, turn heads and light up a crowd with smiles. But when furries AT Pride join other groups with a bigger mission, it puts the magic where it most belongs – in a fabulous show – and makes a good cause better.
Furries invited for August 30, 2015:
Tip from Neonbunny, builder of influential events like Frolic:
“Silicon Valley Pride has reached out to me as they would love to have fursuiters at the pride festival, August 30th. They will have a changing tent available, and can offer free admission for suiters that RSVP in advance.
The other person who they reached out to, who’s coordinating things right now, is Lani B. She’s pretty active in the South Bay cosplay scene, and they’ve reached out to her to get cosplayers to go as well. (Anime/comic type costuming stuff). Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and she’s on facebook here.
This is the link for the pride event, and Lani has also created a facebook page to get cosplayers motivated to go (and hopefully fursuiters as well.) If anyone is interested in coordinating fursuiters for this, please get in touch!” – NeonBunny
