Y/CON (English)

Previously named Yaoi Yuri Con, the Y/CON settles in Paris, cultural crossroad of Europe. Following the success of the 4th edition, this one of a kind exhibition extends its space from 600m² to 800m². The program features still more entertainment around: yaoi, yuri, bara, MxM, FxF, gay, lesbian, trans and even more…

A DIVERSE AND INTERNATIONAL EVENT
Since its first launch, the Y/CON displays its will to promote these genres, by increasing its reception space and diversifying its line-up. The exhibition receives a broad panel of guests and contributors from France as well as from abroad such as Mr Q. (France), Martina Peters (Germany), Chie & Inko (UK/Japan) and HamletMachine (USA). The convention keeps on gathering more exhibitors (>40) and partners (>20) who continue to support us over the years. Curious and faithful visitors from all over Europe participate in the event, and more than 800 are expected this year!

PRESTIGIOUS AND INVOLVED GUESTS
The Y/CON is the occasion for artists to meet their public through high points such as round tables, conferences and workshops. Thus they can engage with their fans in a relaxed atmosphere conductive to meetings between enthusiasts.

PROFESSIONAL BOOTHS AND INDEPENDANT ARTISTS
The Y/CON is also about publishers (novels, mangas and video games), associations, young artists, fanzines… Not forgetting the traditional goodies stores!!

ANIMATED AND ENTERTAINING PROGRAM
The weekend has its tempo set by activities (cosplay, karaoke, quiz…) and by writing and drawing workshops with our guests and attending artists. Screenings of movies and short films, anime and trailers are also offered to the audience. Each year, renowned artists are spotlighted during our thematic exhibition. Plus, not to be missed: exclusive contents and previews!
