(NOTE: Certain Yaoithon activities are age-restricted and will require either a 16+/18+ wristband or a valid government-issued photo ID for admission.)

What is it?

Yaoithon is a subdivision of Otakuthon originally created to showcase content relating to yaoi (also known as boys’ love). Our events are now a space for fans to learn, discuss, and be entertained by queer content spanning multiple genres such as yaoi, slash, danmei, and so much more!

Events and activities

Yaoithon will have its own events so as to include as much of the yaoi community as possible. Panels, screenings and workshops will be slotted into Yaoithon programming. Please note that some activities and screenings will be reserved for a mature audience (either 16+ or 18+). 16+ or 18+ wristband or a valid government-issued photo ID will be required to access these events.
