What sort of people Enjoy it and Who makes this stuff and Why?

ABOUT ROOM 801 :

‘Room 801 is a pop culture convention for over 18s – and more specifically, for fans of yaoi and yuri anime, manga and video games. While yaoi and yuri are both niche genres and have minimal representation at most conventions, they do have a sizeable fanbase. Organised and run by longtime fans with a background in conventions and fandom, Room 801 is a weekend where yaoi and yuri are the central attraction rather than a dirty little secret.

Room 801 is intended to be a safe and inclusive space for fans, regardless of their interests – it won’t be a family-friendly convention, but it won’t be a nerdy Sexpo either. It’s a place where artists, writers, game designers, cosplayers, academics and fans interested in yaoi and yuri can meet up, share information, learn new skills and celebrate their passion.’
