Needs More Gay dissects the highs and lows of gay pop culture with the precision of a dull machete.


  1. I was hoping you would touch on how the marketability of gay, like how Hiei and Kurama weren’t just one of the biggest ’90s ships, but the two most popular characters in the series. It’s fangirl-aimed yaoi gay… but it contrasts hard with how Sensui and Itsuki barely got any shipping attention that I know of. The characters were like a barometer of what level of queer got the most fans while also being a power fantasy to its main audience of straight middle schoolers.

  2. Everything needs more gay. Everything.

  3. I’m a simple man(?). I see Yoshihiro Togashi and/or gay, I click.
