Danmei (耽美) is a Chinese genre of literature and other fictional media revolving around homosexual men and their romantic relationships. It is typically targeted towards a female audience but occasionally pans toward men. Danmei is primarily derived from Japanese BL, although it has its own genre conventions and homoerotic literature in China predates Japan's literary traditions. Most danmei start off as cnovels published on the popular site JJWXC and when it amasses a large fandom, gets the opportunity to be produced into a donghua, manhua, cdrama, or all of the above.
