"almost anything homosexual"

“During the 1992 Tokyo Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, an estimated 80 percent of the audience were straight women who wanted to watch men have sex. As journalist Richard McGregor writes, ‘In Japan, almost anything homosexual can attract an all-female audience.’ … [W]henever a Japanese animated television series or male-targeted manga series becomes extremely popular, the producers almost always issue a boy-love version, where the male characters have sex with each other. ‘It’s widely understood that the audience for these boy-love stories is women.’”
