• Othercon - Virtual Otherkin and Therian Convention

    Hello! After hosting an otherkin/therian information panel at Fur The More 2020, I felt the need to do something more. The community is very broad, but heavily segmented, and I wanted to do something where we could come together regularly to talk, share experiences, and have a fun time.

    I'm hosting a virtual convention called Othercon on August 14th - 16th. It's completely online, mainly taking place in a hub discord server while panels may take place inside the server or on other platforms (like a YouTube livestream). Members of the otherkin/therian community and non-kin are both allowed to attend.

    If the turnout is good enough, I hope to turn it into an annual event. The convention will also be raising funds for Brave Space Alliance and other POC and LGBT charities. Sharing is encouraged so more people will know about the convention's existence!

    Going Backwards

    I wrote some stuff out. I've been labelling myself as "canine" because I'm very unsure and canine provides a vague explanation. I kinda feel like I'm at square one with it again. But yeah, I wrote...

    Not A Therian After All?

    I am almost sure I am ‘hearted and not a therian after all. I’m not unhappy about this theory itself, but I do feel silly and regretful because of the way I was so sure about being a therian. I...

    Good points, Cheetah. I was wondering if it would be feasible to do a little sub-sub-forum that was very clearly labeled as being such an RSS accessible

    There'd be the risk, in any such area, of people joining from "recent activity" and not seeing the notification that their content would be

    While that sounds like a wonderful thing for the community, there are all kinds of ethical problems with taking user generated content from this site

    It feels really good to have more smells returning in the thaw. I keep seeing the coyotes and notice some interesting smells around the pond... I’m
