CORRECTION: Fangcon was NOT the first con to sponsor a float in a Pride parade – FWA was earlier.
Tip from Slickkat: “FWA has had a float in the Atlanta Pride parade for the last two years.” It corrects this week’s headline calling Fangcon the first. Queer media outlet Project Q wrote about the FWA sponsorship: Furries cuddle up and show their Atlanta Pride. The active Georgiafurs site organizes the Pride float since 2013.
Florida Times-Union: Meet the Furries.
