Just a few items today, as I’m working all weekend and feeling rushed at the moment.
(I know a bunch of you sent in news. I’ll get that up next week. Thanks for your patience.)
The New York Times talks about how bara manga artist Tagame Gengoroh’s art has been adopted as official art by this year’s NYC Gay Pride parade.
Victoria McNally’s A Ridiculously Comprehensive History of Sailor Moon, Part 2: Coming to America is up on The Mary Sue.
OtakUSA reports on The Daily Show‘s taking a few potshots at CNN’s slavering coverage of the zOMG reveal that pictures of fictitious characters that look childish are not actual children, in regards to the news of new child porn laws in Japan. The comments at the top are worth reading and do a better job at IDing some of the issues in play than Stewart’s writers.
An interesting look at why creating Strong Female Characters isn’t really enough. (Hint: You gotta give them something to do, too.)
That’s a wrap for this week! Become a Yuri Network Correspondent by sending me any Yuri-related news you find. Emails go to anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com. Not to the comments here, please, or they might be forgotten or missed. There’s a reason for this madness.

Thanks to all of you – you make this a great Yuri Network!
