Worldwide furries: Russia and Belarus – Site losses this week – Fursuiting magic outdoors – Flayrah’s Newsbytes now added here
Do you like links and stories to come? Snausages- a regularish feature. Story tips welcome- I’d love to post yours!
- WORLDWIDE FURRIES: Russia and Belarus
BELFURENCE 1: “The first furry convention in Belarus. We rented a couple of houses in the middle of nowhere, at Braslav Lakes National Park.”
Amazing photos! Rough translating indicates that trouble in Ukraine led to a new event in a new location.
Some of the same furries appear in this parade: Dreamflash… 5000+ people parading for hugs, positivity, bright costumes, and soap bubbles.
A super cool answer to my older article, “Questions for Russian furry fans about anti-gay oppression“. Could simply wearing a fursuit get you in trouble? Not for these.
- SITE LOSSES THIS WEEK:
Popular blog Fuck Yeah Fursuiting is gone.
“Bad Karma shutters Ychan, Yiffy International, 420furs.org” – via Flayrah.
Furry News Network is gone (reported earlier this week in my thoughts about “Furry News.”)
It’s too bad to see potential community-wide resources fizzle. Many mailing lists and meets have high local activity but no reliable wider connection. Perhaps some day, one unified source could use “correspondents” to feed “channels” covering many local areas.
- COMING SOON: “ACADEMIC JOURNAL OPENS DOOR TO RESEARCH ON FURRY PORN” and “INTERVIEW WITH DR. TIBBALS.”
Academic interest, no controversy.
