About This Event:
"Yaoi Jamboree is a brand new Yaoi, Slash, and BL fan convention operated by Yaoi Press, the leading publisher of manga- influenced yaoi graphic novels. "
2008 marks the first year for Yaoi Jamboree, an annual event focusing on yaoi or boys love manga, anime, artwork and games. This 3-day event attracts a largely female adult audience from North America and beyond.
