Worldwide Yaoi Convention Updates

Here are some updates regarding the various yaoi conventions around the world!

 
"Previously known as Yaoifest, AniFet is our new name as we expand our horizons to include all the great things we love about conventions, but can't find there! Join us as we celebrate Yaoi, Yuri, Hentai, Bishonen, Bishojou, Furry, Anthro and more alternative fandoms!" 

This year's AniFET convention takes place in a few days from July 4th to July 7th in Calgary, Alberta Canada. July 4th and 5th are for all ages 16+ and July 6th and 7th are for all ages 18+. You can find their website here and their Facebook group here.  


Bishie Con Announces Bishie Con Cabaret 2011!

"Bishie Con 2010 was such an amazing event that we just couldn't go through with our plan to stop having Bishie Con after this year. Though we do not have the time resources to host an entire Bishie Con in 2011, we will be offering an event for yaoi and slash fans ages 18 and up. Bishie Con Cabaret will be a 12-hour event on a Saturday in mid-December. Starting at 3:00 in the afternoon, Bishie Con Cabaret will have stage events (karaoke, improv, game shows, etc.), limited panel programming, and a vendor room open into the night. We will hold the event in a hotel and serve snacks throughout it just like we did at Bishie Con the past two years. More information on the date and location are coming soon! We hope you will grace us with your presence at this Bishie Con event!"



For you fans in the U.K. there is a group trying to get a yaoi convention together for you. Right now they only have a twitter account but check in for updates or to advise them on what you'd like! They're looking for business affiliates, mascot recommendations and date recommendations for 2012. Make your voices heard!

 


This year's YaoiCon in San Francisco is two weekends before Halloween, October 21st through the 23rd. It is strictly an 18+ convention. This year's guest of honor is Fusanosuke Inariya of Maiden Rose fame. Updates are coming fast and furious so check out the official site for AMV contest theme, bishie auction, advertising, scheduling a panel, etc. See you there!
