See You in 2019…

YaoiCon will be taking a one year break, but we’ll be back stronger than ever in Fall 2019! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information as we work to bring you the best convention possible.

Our Bishounen

YaoiCon bishounen – or “bishies” – are more than just your average con attendee, cosplayer, or volunteer. The gentlemen who are selected as bishies not only cosplay for the convention, but actually strip down to their underwear for it, often getting up close and personal with attendees. Our YaoiCon bishies have formed an internationally recognized show, something special and wonderful!

Bishounen

 

To participate as a Bishounen at Yaoi Con, you must identify as male. Full transition from female to male is not required for transgender Bishounen, however, any activities that involve removing clothing (Bingo, Auction), will require completed top surgery.  Participation in Auction does not require stripping, but it is often a part of the event. Auction is about the best performance; auditions are held and the top performers are selected for the main event. Stripping is a primary part of Bingo. Those unable to participate in the activity are valuable support as helper Bishounen for the event.  Please contact our Bishounen department if you have any questions before you apply.
