LeedsFurs have always taken pride in the strength and diversity of our community and the wider Furry fandom. Together we stand against all forms of discrimination including the scourge of racism. We wholeheartedly believe Black Lives Matter and will do everything we can to support POC within our community and around the world.
There should be no place in this world for any form of racism, bigotry or discrimination. Our community has been and always will be inclusive and a safe space for all. We cannot begin to understand what it’s like to face such racial discrimination on a daily basis, but we’d like to help wherever we can.Back to all News and Reports
With the Festive period now fading away, January can be quite a sad time as the drudgery of work and school makes us wonder why the holidays have to end.
But why let the fun stop? This month’s meet will be a very special one as it’s our 100th ever, so we’re planning an epic celebration!
Who would have thought, when we started all this back in 2002, that we would still be going 16 years later?
Since then, we’ve had an awful lot of fun and the meets have grown along with the fandom. From intimate pub gatherings in the early days to the fursuit and boardgame themed extravaganzas of today, an awful lot has changed over this last decade and a half and we would like to thank all of you who have supported us.
Special thanks go to all our venues, particularly Baa Bar, White Rabbit, Atlas and Bar Soba. We couldn’t have done it without the generous hospitality of our hosts.
Thanks also go to everyone who has ever staffed an event or volunteered their help on the day, and of course all those who have attended, promoted and supported the furry community in Leeds and West Yorkshire.
As it’s our 100th meet, there will be cake, special furry themed drinks and maybe even a limbo competition. So come down to Bar Soba on Saturday 20 January and celebrate our 100th meet with us. It will be great to see you there.Back to all News and Reports
