Hello Everyone:
	Since there seems to be so such interest in Japan
Society's "Otaku Cinema Slam!" Film And Video Festival ... 
	Those of you who missed Ms. MIZOGUCHI Akiko wonderful
lecture, "Homophobic Homos, Rapes Of Love, And Queer Lesbians In
Japanese Yaoi Comics", at New York University, on 2004 March 8
Monday, will have another opportunity to hear Ms. Mizoguchi
lecture on Yaoi, on May 13 Friday, at Japan Society.  
    2005 May 13 Friday at 6:30 PM: Video Screening "Kizuna,
	Parts 1 & 2".  
	These two episodes of the anime adaptation of one of the
    bestselling Yaoi comics depict a love triangle between
    Ranmaru, Kei and Kai, as well as a tangled family drama
    between two brothers, Kei and Kai.  Yaoi is a cultic
    subculture genre of manga with a theme of male to male
    romantic love that is primarily read by women, but also has
    a strong presence in the Comicket (comic market) estimated
    to draw one million fans in Japan.  MIZOGUCHI Akiko of the
    National Film Center, Tokyo gives an introductory lecture on
    yaoi, followed by a talk by manga artist KODAKA Kodaka.
