Have there ever been more thrilling words uttered in English? YAOI JAMBOREE! It’s not a joke!

Yaoi Press, the leading publisher of manga influenced yaoi graphic novels, announces Yaoi Jamboree, a new fan convention to run June 20-22nd in Phoenix Arizona.

“We were eager to see more bl themed conventions start up,” says Yaoi Press Publisher, Yamila Abraham. “The staff for two Phoenix area anime conventions approached us about starting one. Once we saw we had competent people to operate the show it was an easy decision for us.”

Yaoi Jamboree will be held at the Renaissance Phoenix Hotel, in Glendale, Arizona. The venue will provide a 36,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall, a ballroom, a theater, and multiple panel rooms.

Guests will include Japanese mangaka, as well as creators for Yaoi Press. Plans are underway for unique main events involving male actors from an area playhouse. Yaoi Press will publish an art book of attendee submissions to distribute at the show.

Attendees must be at least 18 years old, and first year turn-out is estimated at 2,000. “We will be aggressively promoting the show,” says Abraham. “Yaoi Jamboree will be advertised both by itself, and in conjunction with regular Yaoi Press advertisements. It will be publicized at many shows Yaoi Press attends.”

  1. My roommate is convinced this is only happening because she’s leaving the state (and the country) this fall. But really, having a Yaoi convention in Phoenix, just by itself that’s bewildering. But having it in July? I’m really not sure what the big idea is there.

  2. It DOES seem kinda silly to have a yaoi con in Arizona in June – and that’s NOT including the fact that it’s a week before the industry’s AX/Otakon/SDCC triple-play starts.
