Bara evolved from illustrations and manga in gay men's general-interest (and/or pornographic) magazines, which partially accounts for the differences in style and tone, as well as the generally short story length. It is generally considered a separate genre from yaoi; many Japanese bara artists would be offended if their works were called yaoi. The term was popularized by a Japanese gay magazine called ''Barazoku'' (lit. rose tribe), the same magazine that coined the term ''Yurizoku'' (lit. lily tribe) that later became {{Yuri|Genre}}. See the {{Wikipedia}} on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bara_(genre) Bara]].

Unlike {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s, Bara fans don't worry about {{shipping}} and are not so vocal about it either. However, FanYay plays an important role on the bara fandom, since official works were quite rare until recently, so fans have to rely on {{Doujinshi}}, FanArt and FanFiction.

See also the DistaffCounterpart, {{Yuri|Genre}}. Contrast and compare with {{Yaoi}}. Example works that aren't Bara but attract a strong Bara fandom are listed under FanYay.

'''Bara''' is a Japanese genre of manga and art for gay and bisexual men, usually (but not exclusively) made by gay or bisexual men. In Japan it's more commonly known as "gei comi", "gei manga", or "menslove". Note that, like most MangaDemographics, Bara is defined in terms of the target audience, not the authors or the subject matter; there are women who write Bara and are published in Bara magazines, while the rare few stories by gay male authors about gay men which are intended for a general (presumptively heterosexual) audience are not usually classified as Bara.

Bara can cover any topic but most focuses on romance or sex. Bara generally features mature and realistic(ish) relationships, rather than overly {{melodrama}}tic soap opera plots. Bara is more likely to feature manly and muscular (sometimes [[TheBear hairy]]) characters with varying degrees of [[BigBeautifulMan body fat]], as opposed to the [[{{Bishonen}} androgynous and effeminate boys]] commonly found in {{Yaoi}}. It also, usually, tends to {{avert|ed trope}}, {{subvert|ed trope}} or {{invert|ed trope}} the {{Uke}} and {{Seme}} dynamics; e.g., frequently the {{Seme}} is someone younger and much "cuter" looking.
