TLC to show "Furry" Episode of My Strange Addiction
Jan 19, 9:00 pm – TLC – The Learning Channel
Name: Lauren A.
Addiction: Wearing a fur suit
Lauren can’t imagine going to a party or social event without wearing her fur suit. She’s completely dedicated to her “fursona” — designing and sewing her costume well into the night, it even takes priority to finding a job.
FNN contacted Kiira to get her side of the story, This is the response she had. There is more forthcoming.
I’d love to get my side of the story out. I have left the fandom, though I still do make costumes and occasionally go out in it with my friends who are also furs. I just don’t associate myself as a furry anymore. But they totally twisted everything, I can just tell by the preview. I told them I only go out maybe once a month if that. I never bring it out around people that aren’t furs, and I never once brought it to a gathering or social event. Yet they say I can’t stand to be without it for one minute. I know my video will just provoke the community more, but I do need to get my side of the story out regardless. I’m glad there are still some people with common sense in this world.
Lauren Atkins aka Kiira
Editor’s Note: As soon as TLC posts preview clips, we’ll update this with the new information.
