Hello! My name is HamletMachine and I am an erotic comic artist from NYC.

I was invited to YaoiGeneration for the first time in 2017 as a guest of honor and it was a wonderful experience!

I adore this convention and the kind team who runs it – I have returned for a video conference in 2020, and again as a guest of honor in 2022.

The wonderful family and friends who organize this convention do it out of communal love for the genre and they took great care in all aspects of the event: from attentive communication, arranging travel plans, hospitality, and of course, any requirements at the table. Everyone is dedicated and exceptional at their work. As a guest, I was truly impressed by their care.

As a visiting foreigner, I was at a disadvantage to not know the language or the country, but the team at Yaoi Generation were able to help with logistics and make the experience very comfortable.

Yaoi Generation is a cozy convention in the picturesque city of Lausanne. It is rich in history and cultural experiences, and also has fantastic shopping (the Yaoi Generation sponsor Tanigami is only blocks from the hotel), as well as excellent food. (I was able to feast as a vegan, so there is a good variety!)

My experiences at Yaoi Generation are very positive and I cherish my memories with the organizers.

Thank you so much!


My dear Yaoi team,

I’m finally here having time to write down my appreciation to all of you guys! I can’t fully express all of my gratitude but thank you for everything this time…!

We had good experiences and fun times at the event and during sightseeing as well. I’m so impressed that Isabel let us stay at her place even though we were new to her.

All of your dear team is just awesome to us!

Although we had several troubles during the stay, we had special days thanks to you guys. Our kids won’t ever forget the memories of the Lausanne and you never!

Well,,, they could forget some, so we will visit you and Lausanne in a couple of years soon. Haha!

We all are looking forward to seeing you guys again, maybe in Japan.

Come visit us during the SAKURA season next year.

Huge thank you from us!
