We are happy to announce that futekiya will be at FujoCon, happening on July 11 and 12, 2020.
What is FujoCon?
FujoCon is a BL+ virtual convention dedicated to providing fan creators with opportunities to share their art, cosplay, and panels as we all stay home to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Their mission is to provide adult fans and creators and safe and fun space to share art, cosplay, and panels with one another through a virtual space. They aim to bring the convention experience online so everyone may experience FujoCon from the safety of their own homes while we practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Their motto is ship and let ship and they expect their attendees to honor that. They do not condone nor tolerate any hateful behavior and will remove any attendees who display any sort of misconduct.
Because of the nature of BL content, FujoCon is aimed at adults and will have 18+ programming.
