Is there any gay male hentai anime?

Mark H

Funny you should ask...I can't say whether there is any animation made by gay men for gay men in Japan. There is, however, queer manga, which is where the tradition of yaoi started — in comic books. And while there are the yaoi for girls, there are graphic (and very graphic) stories that were printed in gay men's magazines when I lived in Japan.

It should be no surprise that the Yaoi convention in the US was held in San Francisco this year. Of course, the anime con will be in NYC in a couple of weeks, so you can always nose around there...I know I will be.
