Etymology[edit]

Short for barazoku, from Japanese 薔薇族 (バラゾク, barazoku, literally "rose tribe"), the name of Japan's first modern gay men's magazine, named after a post-World War II term for gay men.

Pronunciation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

The term barazoku was once relatively more common in the Japanese gay community (the magazine Barazoku starting publication in 1971), but has long since gone out of fashion in Japan, having been replaced by terms like ガチムチ (gachimuchi).

The term bara often contrasts with yaoi, which is gay male media usually made by heterosexual women to appeal to other heterosexual women. Whereas bara typically emphasizes masculine homoeroticism and frank explicit sexual situations, yaoi typically emphasizes the androgynous bishonen aesthetic and depicts emotional romantic relationships.

Noun[edit]

bara (uncountable)

  1. (Internet slang) A genre; homoerotic media, usually manga and often pornographic, made by gay men for gay men in Japan.
  2. (Internet slang) Gay male media of a similar style and aesthetic, regardless of the creator's gender or ethnicity.
