News for Bishie Con 2010:

Bishie Con announces theme, dates, location for 2010

Bishie Con, the Midwest's Yaoi and Slash convention, will take place December 17-19, 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Clayton in St. Louis, Missouri.

Bishie Con's theme for 2010 is Destination: Bishie Con, Yaoi Around the World. The convention will celebrate not only yaoi manga and anime from Japan but male/male romance from all over the world. The 2010 convention will also offer some Hetalia-themed events such as live-action Yaoi Axis & Allies and a Hetalia Host Party hosted by some of your favorite countries and featuring their native foods.

Bishie Con is a unique spin on conventions, combining yaoi and slash from all genres and including lighter "shounen-ai" romance for a younger crowd. The convention focuses on art and writing workshops, panels both educational and just for fun on yaoi and LGBT topics, and fun social events such as karaoke, game shows, and a dance.

The age limit for Bishie Con is 16, but younger fans may attend with a paying chaperone. The convention becomes 18+ after 10:00 p.m. with some themed parties for those under 18.
