Othercon - virtual otherkin/therian/alterhuman convention (Aug 12th-14th)


I am just a dog on the internet (wow!)


What is Othercon?
Othercon is the first ever annual 3-day virtual convention for members of the Otherkin, Therian, and general Alterhuman/Nonhuman community.
The purpose of this convention is to provide a space where people within (and outside) of the community can come together to socialize, educate, and entertain for a fun-filled weekend!

A virtual convention? How will it work?
Unlike an in-person convention, virtual conventions take place completely online. For Othercon, it will take place in a Discord server. There you can communicate with everyone attending, attend panels, get faster notifications of important updates during the duration of the convention (like schedule changes), and more.

Do you need to be otherkin/therian/alterhuman to attend?
No. While not the primary audience, people from outside the community are welcome to attend the con as well since it can be a valuable learning experience.

How much does it cost to attend?
Nothing! Othercon is completely free this year

Registration Schedule

Artists, Dealers, Panelists: January 1st - April 30th

Conbook: May 1st - July 31st

Attendees: Jun 1st - August 6th

Ooo this looks like it would be interesting. I'm fictionkin so there is some overlap between the fictionkin and otherkin communities experience wise but yea I'll check it out if I have the time those days!

I've never really been into the otherkin/therian type of stuff really, but I do find it interesting to hear opinions of people who are, y'know?
But that sounds pretty neat and I might stop by for the sake of checking it out.

Panelist and artist registration opens next week (July 8th -19th)! If you wanted to run a panel, now's a good time to start planning

Attendee registration is open now if anyone was interested. Panel registration was extended an extra week though, so the schedule is still being worked on

Just updating this to say that the con was a success! Much more than expected actually. If you weren't able to attend, some of the panels are available on youtube.

Scar the fur also did a wonderful review for every day of the event:

In addition to that, we were able to raise $439 USD for LGBT+ and BIPOC charities! Yay!
