Welcome to June and Pride Month to Yaoi Playground!!!

Two themed months in a row? I must be completely crazy but this month is about a subject near and dear to my heart so I was not going to pass up the chance this month!

Welcome to Pride Month here on Yaoi Playground with posts dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community! You can expect some amazing work out of me this month because this gives me the best excuse to write about certain movies, shows, books and other media that I have been wanting to write about for a while here on Yaoi Playground, but never really knew when would be a good time to write about them as I know that yaoi media and LGBTQ+ media can at times be vastly different from each other, even if there is a lot of overlap when it comes to the kind of people that enjoy content from both.

It has been said by many others before me, but it is true. Yaoi and Yuri are not a good representation of real LGBTQ+ issues and some would say these fantasies can at time be damaging to said community. It all comes down to fantasy vs reality and this month I want to take a closer look at the reality side of things by looking at some very trans-formative pieces of media throughout this month. From a television show that completely changed the landscape of how LGBTQ+ were portrayed on television to an anime that explores themes of gender identity I hope to share some fun posts with you all this month.

  1. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you post here. There are some great LGBTQ+ forms of media out there, and I’m always on the look out for more.
