Graphic Novel Week Day One: Yaoi

Hey all,

The long-awaited graphic novel week is here! Today’s topic – Yaoi:

Yaoi (properly [ja.o.i], informally /jaʊi/), also known as Boys’ Love (BL), is a Japanese genre of fictional media focusing on romantic or sexual relationships between male characters, typically aimed at a female audience and usually created by female authors.

Are you a Yaoi fan or a Yaoi writer? Come talk with us about your favorite books, the rules and expectations of the genre, and where it may go from here.
