Who knew we had our own holiday? In case you're wondering why today is "Yaoi Day" it comes down to understanding the meaning behind 801. I wrote a Word of the Day post on 801 ages ago so I'll just recap it below:
"Another term for yaoi is 801. "801" can be read as "yaoi" in the following form: the "short" reading of the number 8 is "ya", 0 can be read as "o" – a western influence without doubt, while the short reading for 1 is "i" (see Japanese wordplay). For example, an Internet manga called Tonari no 801-chan, about an otaku guy who dates a fujoshi, has been adapted into a serialised shojo manga and a live-action film. 801-chan, the mascot of a Japanese shopping centre, is used in the manga."

Now you know why 801 Media uses 801 in their name. So what does that have to do with today? Well, for most of us it is still August 1st or 8/01. Get it? Now go celebrate!
I forgot about this one until someone brought it up on twitter. I can't believe I never posted it! This AMV won Best Comedy at YaoiCon 2010. Enjoy!
Oh yes, kiddies! The hottie from The Hangover did a gay scene back in the day and he's a bottom! (Gotta love those short gym shorts and tall tube socks) The movie was called Wet Hot American Summer and here's what he had to say recently about it:
This is a free boys' love flash game that I thought you'd like to check out. It's not very long but it's explicit. Clearly not safe for work and there is some porn music that plays as well as sexy sound effects so if be aware of who's around you when you check it out. Have fun!
You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, let's just say you don't need to know what's being said in this video to get its meaning.
This time you need to work for it! Just make sure no one is looking over your shoulder. Place your mouse over the puzzle loading icon to load puzzle!
Here's the original "I'm a Banana!" video that inspired this one.
