York, Penn. - September 1, 2008 - When Ang Lee brought the world the love story between two cowboys in late 2005 it shocked many people and made others grin happily. The ones with the grins were most likely fans of a Japanese export known as yaoi. Like Brokeback Mountain, yaoi focuses on the romantic and often sexual relationship between two men, but the average reader of yaoi fiction isn't what is first expected. "98% of my readers are heterosexual women ranging in age from 18 to their late 60's," says S. A. Payne, writer of dozens of romantic yaoi style novels and publisher of the upcoming Yaoi Magazine.
Also mentioned was a possible cooperation with Aurora Publishing at Yaoi-Con:
Can't get enough of the yaoi paddles? Worry not, Yaoi Press has revealed that it is currently working with a manufacturer to create the "Yaoi Parasols"! A picture of the Yaoi Parasol can be found here.
According to Yaoi Press:
They're currently looking for an artist to do the artworks on the Yaoi Parasol.
