Las Vegas Fur Con (LVFC) is a gathering for fans of anthropomorphic (commonly known as “furry”) art, science fiction and fantasy held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The convention is organized by Southern Nevada Anthropomorphic Events (SNAE), a nonprofit organization incorporated in Nevada. SNAE is committed to empowering communities and raising funds to help charitable causes, particularly those relevant to its missions of diversity.
LVFC and SNAE grew out of UNLV’s Rebel Anthropomorphic Works and Recreation club, or RAWR, which has hosted smaller gatherings in the past, before bringing on new talent in order to organize a proper convention. This new talent includes sole proprietors, artists, meetup organizers, and locals chatroom moderators.
The Convention Committee
The Board of Directors
LVFC has diversity as one of its goals, and so its inaugural board prioritizes trans and BIPOC leadership to encourage people from all backgrounds to be part of our convention. This is reflected in both the Board’s voting Directors, of which there are 11. At present, we are majority BIPOC and majority trans.
