Kinmunity is an online community primarily intended for individuals who identify under the umbrella of non-human or alterhuman, including: otherkin, therianthropes, vampires, fictionkin, the other-hearted and animal-hearted and plural systems to name a few. We aim to provide a safe-place for all individuals with such identities. We are NOT a gaming, roleplay, or fantasy website.
