In “Fursonas,” The Furry Community Explains That It Is All About Acceptance

May 1, 2017 — Most people have trouble understanding the popularity of furry fandom. Creating fictional human-like personas for furry (already fictional) characters does not appeal to the majority of people.

Neither does designing, assembling and dressing up in furry costumes.

But for some, it is an important element of their lives. For them, choosing to dress up as animals — usually one particular animal whose features and personality have been created with care — is a form of self-expression which gives pleasure and a sense of belonging. 

The Furry community believes that its members and community are about accepting people for who they are, or, at least, who they choose to be. But there are competing factions within the furry world, including those who wish to control the public image of furries. And, as a group, the Furry community has certainly gotten its share of confused, salacious and negative publicity.

Dominic Rodriguez has made Fursonasa documentary about the furry community. It is a film that attempts to reveal the truths, half-truths and stereotypes that surround the lifestyle, and dispel the odd, discomforting and distorted rumors common in the world.

After all, truth is strange enough.

Fursonas is available  on DVD or Blu-ray, or you can stream it immediately on Amazon Video.
