Salt Lake City's Crystal Mountain Pony Con is a place for fans of My Little Pony to meet and celebrate what they love without the judgement that often follows them.

In this video shot over the weekend festivities, attendees explain that My Little Pony is much more than a kids' TV show—t's a show that promotes acceptance and friendship; one that now has jokes and characters aimed toward their growing adult fanbase. Each MLP fan has their own story about how they came to love the show, and what it means to them.
