North America's only yaoi-themed anime convention. The first one was held in San Francisco on September 1, 2000-Sept. 2. Originally, ShoujoCon was to be bicoastal, alternating years, but that fell through and the California contigent came up with this shounen-ai alternative. Like Comiket, Yaoi-Con is expected to have a lot of American doujinshi and original manga--relatively unusual for North American cons. There will be an art show, special guests from Japan, a dealers' room, and the usual convention attractions--just with a very uncommon theme.

Attendance is limited, there's an age restriction, and it's being held in the posh Radisson Miyako in Japantown. It should be interesting to see so much (mostly) female unrestrained libido running around.
