Fangirls, as the primary market, include both queer women and heterosexual women. In Japan, such girls are generally more derided for their {{Otaku}}-like interest than being interested in QueerRomance of their own sex. The main exception is if such a girl expresses desire in girls outside of fiction, which generally leads to HideYourLesbians. As characters, Yuri fangirls are frequently shown as a CovertPervert and/or ShipperOnDeck.

Overall, as characters, Yuri fans tend to be very GenreSaavy and are often portrayed with glasses ({{Meganekko}}/{{Megane}}) lending themselves toward [[OtakuSurrogate surrogacy]].

Yuri fanboys are the other component of Yuri fandom. What generally makes Yuri fanboys is a great insistence on the portrayed relationships, feelings, and shipping, instead of merely being male conduits of GirlOnGirlIsHot. Primarily, Yuri fanboys are heterosexual. As characters, given their gender, they tend to be an overzealous ShipperOnDeck (given they can't be part of Yuri themselves) or just a LoonyFan.

Regardless, yuri tends to be [[CostumePorn lush]], [[BishieSparkle pretty]], and [[SoapOpera highly emotive]], which attracts all kinds of fans. Japanese cultural UsefulNotes/Homophobia, heterosexism, and emphasis on procreation gives the genre a "forbidden love" quality often sought by fans.

Unlike gay male romance, where {{Yaoi|Genre}} and {{Bara|Genre}} separate material primarily marketed at girls and gay men respectively, in {{Yuri|Genre}} there aren't such divisions. Because of this, queer women are combined with the central demographic of consumption. Even contrary to Japanese cultural mores, the primary consumer of homosexual female media is women, as often reported by very popular yuri manga reader [[http://www.ichijinsha.co.jp/yurihime/ Comic Yuri Hime]].

In regards to yuri fanboys, the difference between them and a guy who just thinks GirlOnGirlIsHot is that a yuri fanboy is interested in actual {{Yuri}}, including the {{shipping}} aspects of the fandom, while the latter involves individuals who may never have seen a GirlsLove work in their lives, so long as they get turned on by girl on girl. Fictional yuri fanboys don't show up often as a significantly greater emphasis is placed on non-shipping GirlOnGirlIsHot types.

* ''Manga/YuruYuri'' has the yuri fangirl Chitose who [[ShipperOnDeck frequently imagines Kyouko and Ayano together]] and her twin sister Chizuru, who [[ShipperOnDeck images her sister together with Ayano]] in both relatively tame and explicit situations often resulting in her getting a {{nosebleed}} (Chitose) or starting to drool (Chizuru). A running gag is that she has to remove her glasses to see the subtext, implying she wants to cloud her vision of reality for her fantasies to work.

Yuri Fangirls also exist, and are in fact the primary market for much of the genre, since unlike {{Yaoi|Genre}} and {{Bara|Genre}}, there's not two separate genres for straight men and lesbian women. Media depicting love between women and girls is popular among some heterosexual girls as well, in part because of the "forbidden romance" angle, and for their tendency to be [[CostumePorn lush]], [[BishieSparkle pretty]], and [[SoapOpera chock full of melodrama]]. (Not to mention, as a certain feminist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simone_de_Beauvoir author]] pointed out, women enjoy soft, silky, uh... ''feminine'' things just as much as men). A yuri fangirl is rarely questioned about her sexuality (interest in homosexuality is generally seen as "just a phase" in Japan), but she ''is'' often questioned about her...[[{{Otaku}} exuberance]] for the genre. In fiction, Yuri Fangirls are a popular character type within GirlsLove series.
