Since the 2010 release of the TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, a growing fan base has sprung up, made of people from all age groups, males and females alike. Despite the fact that the show is named after a series of girls' toys and was originally intended for that audience, the outstanding production values, sharp and beautiful animation, and relatable stories have all helped to make the show a hit.
Still, we know, it sounds silly...a show about ponies spreading tolerance and friendship. The truth, though? It's awesome. Way more awesome than a show about ponies should be. That's why we started this fan club, Bronies Anonymous for Magical Friendship (or BAMF), to spread the word that friendship, respect and tolerance are ideas that we can all stand behind, and no matter how old we may be, we could all use more happiness in our lives. We invite you to "join the herd", learn about the show, and be a part of our little friendly group. Click the link below for more information.
Across the country, hundreds of fan clubs and "meetup" groups are forming around My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Texas already has several, including clubs in Houston and Austin, but the Bryan/College Station area's smaller population and remote location has made it difficult to assemble here.
Thanks to members of Cepheid Variable, a group which "stands as an organization devoted to the support and promotion of all things science fiction, fantasy, horror, science, and technology, and the support of the community that grows around them through an atmosphere of acceptance and kinship", Aggieland now has a pony fan club of its very own, which we call Bronies Anonymous for Magical Friendship, or BAMF.
In keeping with the message of the show itself, we do our very best to love and tolerate everyone around us, regardless of our differences, and we invite you to come meet with us and share your experiences.
Our activities range from watching episodes of the show itself to exploring the many fan-made videos, songs, and photos from across the web, along with a healthy dose of friendly discussion and "pony evangelism", where we subtly spread the word of life with ponies across the Texas A&M campus.
