BL In My Salad!? My Anime? My Kpop!? BL “Baits” Within Popular Media

#BLushCon24 Sometimes, we have a niggling feeling that there’s something queer about the media we’re consuming. This talk looks at the “baits” that “lure” BL fans to embrace the queer potential of media and how it opens our world towards positive queer possibilities.

Dr Khursten Santos is an Assistant Professor in the Japanese Studies Program at Ateneo de Manila University. Her works on BL and fan culture have been published in various books and journals, and her forthcoming research examines the trend of FiloAU within KPOP fan spaces in the Philippines.
