Florida furries convention forced to add age restriction by DeSantis' drag law

The MegaPlex meetup for furries and fans is using an abundance of caution regarding DeSantis' pet anti-drag law

By Jessica Bryce Young

Orlando-based organizers of an annual con for furries have decided to restrict attendees to those 18 and older this year, in response to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' pet legislation regulating drag performances. Megaplex: Furry Sun, Florida Fun posted a statement last week announcing that this year's convention will not be open to kids: "It has been decided that for legal reasons and protection of our attendees, our venue, and the overall convention, Megaplex 2023 attendees must be 18 years of age."
