There aren't enough column inches to cover the concepts and subgenres of yaoi, the Japanese term for illustrated, homoerotic fan fiction generally written for women by women. Matt Weston and Jared Presler's vision for the first annual Ahn!Con, the Midwest Yaoi Convention is for it to grow into a sort of "gay-geek event." "In my experience, most yaoi takes graphic novels and fits them into the same niche as romance novels," Weston says. "If you want it to be a substitute for porn, you can find explicit yaoi. But with the censorship laws Japan has, it's hard to find, and most sex scenes never show much." Explore more starting at 2 p.m. today. It goes through Sunday at the Ramada Conference Center (1601 North Universal Avenue, 816-245-5500). See ahn-con.com for more information.
