 LGBTQ Issues and the Globalization of “BL”


日時:20231125日(土)・26日(日) 午前10時~午後6

November 25 (Sat.) and November 26 (Sun.), 10:00–18:00


Venue: 5th Floor Hall, Low-Rise Wing, Meiji University Nakano Campus




Japanese boys love (BL), a female-oriented media genre which depicts male–male romance, is currently spreading overseas beyond the borders of Japan. In addition, an increasing amount of BL media and related culture is being reimported into Japan from Thailand, China, the Philippines, and elsewhere. In this context, it has become clear that the relationship between BL and LGBTQ culture in each region is different. Unlike in Japan, for instance, BL fans and members of the LGBTQ community in many places around the world sometimes hold joint events. At this international symposium, researchers and organizers of BL events from various countries will explore the relationship between BL and the LGBTQ community and culture in the countries which they research or are active in the fandom.
