What is Ethos? Ethos is an online magazine focusing on subjects relating to boylove and the BL community. Does that mean there are "legally questionable" things in there? Absolutely not.

Every three months. A new issue of Ethos is released on the 15th of every March, June, September and December. When did Ethos start? We released our first issue on September 15th, 2016.

You can submit content using our online form here, or you can email it to us at What is BBN? BBN is an abbreviation for Blue Boy News, which serves to collect and display boy-related news. It is run by volunteers like Ethos. Why do I have to wait a few seconds when I click an outside link on this site? This is a safety precaution, to protect our visitors. When you go to any website, that website usually knows where you came from because your browser sends a "referer" header. That header has the URL of the webpage you were viewing immediately before the one you're on now. The little wait you see is us removing that header before sending you to the destination, so the site you end up at has absolutely no idea where you got to their site from.
