Yaoi/Yuri North is the annual yaoi and yuri-centric programming track that runs as part of Anime North. Programming features a variety of informative panels and events including fandom-specific discussions, queer lifestyle, and yaoi/yuri fandom topics, as well as evening/overnight viewings and a multitude of contests. Popular panels from previous years include World History of Homosexuality, Gay Sex 101 (18+), Crossplay 101, Fandom Ate My Soul, Psychology of Yaoi, Yuri in the West, and Yuri 101.
Panel registration for Yaoi and Yuri North follows the same process as regular panel registration. When submitting a panel for Yaoi/Yuri North, please select Yaoi/Yuri North from the section drop-down on ANPanels.com.
Most of the content is kept PG-13 in nature but some panels may require audience members to show proof of age before being let in due to the adult nature of their content. These panels and events will be noted with (18+) in their name in the program book. Attendees may get their badges pre-stamped at any time to allow for easier access to 18+ panels.
For 2014, Yaoi/Yuri North is proud to invite:
