Girls don't want boys, girl's want...boys and more boys? Juné Manga has just released their stats outlining the differences between yaoi fans of the past and yaoi fans today.
Juné has not only brought this genre to the West, but the publisher hopes to blur the lines between comics for women and comics for the LGBT community. Their new genre "yabara" combines the words "yaoi" and "bara", and plans on combining the erotic tone of bara with the story driven character development of yaoi. This new infographic provides a study on female based fandom as a whole, and the direction it's going in with the addition of LGBT input.

Juné is a yaoi/boy’s love manga imprint from the California based publishing house, Digital Manga Inc. With its very first publication back in 2004, Juné has been the innovated center for the boy’s love genre in the U.S.
Originally inspired by Junét Magazine, Japan’s very first publication of male/male stories, Juné followed their innovative lead. Taking from the Japanese pronunciation of the French poet Jean Genet’s last name as “Jonneh,” Juné’s English-language published works began.
Over the years, the Juné line has published over 300 print titles and over 200 digitals titles. Now with its shop and imprint fused into one, more and more yaoi is available directly to the fans. This includes manga, novels, digital downloads, news, and many more exciting ventures yet to come.
