I've watched a few documentaries on the furry fandom, especially the most recent one "The Fandom." Each one is filled with a sea of white, almost completely neglecting that furries of color exist. In regards to "The Fandom" documentary, furries of color were merely glanced at for a few minutes, and the rest was focused on white furries. And that's aggravating.
I'm opening up this non-fiction, furry anthology for furries of color because our voices matter. We deserve to talk about our characters, our projects, our experiences, and involvement in this fandom, and there's not exactly a space for that.
"Can You See Us Now?" is a project looking for personal essays from furries of color. I want to read about your experiences, about what your character means to you, if you're an artist or a writer, a gamer, or even a dancer. I want to hear from you.
- Send me your story. 8,000 words max.
- Payment is 1/2 cent per word plus a copy of the finished book.
- Deadline: January 1, 2021
Please note that this project is for furries of color, including furries who are Biracial. This is not a space for allies.
