AnthroCon Article


'Furries' leave visible prints Downtown and in Pittsburgh's coffers


A nice positive article about furries, the largest con, and the positive impact to the local economy. Though what I found most amazing...

"walked into the [Pittsburgh International] airport store to buy an Anthrocon shirt that was on sale"

They're selling furry con shirts at the friggin' airport store! I remember (it wasn't THAT long ago) that the fandom had trouble getting arrangements with hotels and filling a 200 room block. Wow. How we've grown!
