Unlike gay male romance, where {{Yaoi|Genre}} and {{Bara|Genre}} separate material aimed 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]].

* With some CharacterDevelopment, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic went from [[GirlOnGirlIsHot salivating over catfights]] to still being into girl/girl, ''but'' also ripping movies like ''Film/TheHaunting1999'' to shreds for just treating homosexuality as {{fanservice}}.

Yuri Fan is for shipper examples. For non-shipping examples who still love seeing girl/girl action, see GirlOnGirlIsHot (although the two tropes can overlap). Not to be confused with fans of [[Creator/YuriLowenthal Lowenthal]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Lowell]], [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Sakazaki]], [[VideoGame/ShadowHearts Volte Hyuuga]], [[Anime/TigerAndBunny Petrov]], [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2 that creepy fellow who failed to take over the Soviet Union by mind control back in the '70s]], [[TheSpaceRace the first man in space]], [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare an ex-Spetsnaz soldier]], a [[HistoryOfTheUSSR former Soviet General Secretary]], or [[LightNovel/DirtyPair a 3WA Trouble Consultant]]... well, there can be some overlap with that last one.

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.
