NYC Bronies: Meet Two Generations of My Little Pony Fans at Big Apple Ponycon


“Well, the show was originally designed for little girls and their parents, but I’m not a little girl or the parent of a little girl, so we’re not really the target audience,” says 16-year-old Henry, a brony who lives on the Upper West Side.

“And yet, we have become the target audience.”

Bronies — non-traditional fans of the popular children’s series, My Little Pony — come in all ages. Henry, and Bill, 70, represent two generations of bronies. We followed the two at the recent 2014 Big Apple Ponycon convention in Jersey City.
