PURITY: The "Post-Yaoi" Anthology is a collection that unites artists with a shared history of reading yaoi and LGBT+ comics and provided them an opportunity to explore the influence of their past readership on their art in the present day. The collection is now complete and be purchased digitally here on itch.io!

This anthology is for mature readers only (18+)!

Not everyone had the same relationship with yaoi (m/m manga marketed for a female audience). Some folk read yaoi or queer comics for a short while, but have since transitioned to other interests. Others remain diehard fans! Some people go back for the occasional nostalgia trip, whereas others are still in the process of discovering the genre. Purity intends to shed some light on where this shared history has led us, both as creators and members of a strong and diverse audience.

Many creators have been made to feel ashamed or apologetic about their past inspirations. Both A.E. and Anne understand that feeling. It is difficult to feel alienated over something that was touching and personal for you, something you might not have even read for years, but somehow still labels you. The Purity anthology is not intended to suggest that "yaoi" is good or bad, or force you to decide. We only want to give individuals a chance to express how a shared history has affected their lifelong creative trajectories in a supportive and thoughtful environment.
