FANS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER!
Let's face it, humans are cliquish by nature, and as for otaku, sheesh! Don't get us started! But that's okay. We want to you enjoy hanging out with others who have the same esoteric, you-remember-that-one-episode-of-Gundam Mecha Magical Toddler Boopsie -- OMG!! -- interests that you do. Registration for fan panels and gatherings is still open, but don't delay! Boopsie won't wait forever! Info on Fan Gatherings can be found on our main page, and panels in general here:

CONFESSIONS: OTAKU HOARDERS
Hoarding is a terrible condition that affects people from all walks of life, but is particularly hard on otaku. All of those volumes of manga, all of those figurines, all of those doujinshi! What's a desperate otaku to do? Well, we're here to help you! You've got stuff to sell. Other people want to buy stuff. Bing bang boom! Yaoi-Con is happy to bring buyers and sellers together is our ever-popular Swap Meet! This is the only event where you can actually make money -- before spending it all again. So what if you end up bringing more stuff home than you took to the con to sell – at least it will be new stuff that will bury you in happiness!
Registration for Swap Meet will open later this month. In the mean time, check out the details:

HUNTING HIGH AND LOW
At Yaoi-Con, we like to take the ordinary and make it yaoi-rrific. Admit it, you'll never think of auctions and bingo the same way ever again, will you? This year brings a new event to the con – the very first Yaoi-Con Scavenger Hunt! Just *imagine* the fun things we could have you hunting down! We're looking for up to 20 teams of up to 5 members each to take part. The hunt commences Saturday at the con, and details about sign-ups will be coming soon, so get your teams together and get ready to rumble!
