I recently presented my Brony research ("What is a Brony and Why Should Social Workers Care?") at KASWE, a social work conference in Kentucky. People are really interested in this subject! There were several people who went so far as to research what a Brony is when they saw the title in the conference itinerary. Several approached me and said they had been looking forward to seeing research on Bronies! A social work professor even wants to incorporate a discussion of the Brony phenomenon in her feminism class. I will be sending her a copy of my paper so she can find some good resources to use.
Thank you to everyone who responded to my forum posts. Your opinions helped me find the core issues to research, and have opened my eyes to the strengths of online communities. Please continue to share your perspectives with other researchers. Your input is so valuable and we appreciate you so much.
Peace and Light,
