Uranian Poetry was a type of sentimentally stylized pederastic (boy) poetry that formed a tabooed subculture among certain upper class men from the 1880s to 1930s.

The group's name derives, in part, from the Platonic theory of "heavenly" or "Uranian" pederasty. Some of these Uranians were William Johnson, Lord Alfred Douglas (1870-1945), John Gambril Nicholson (1886-1931), Edwin Emmanuel Bradford (1860-1944), John Addington Symonds (1840-1892). Marginally associated with their world were more famous writers such as Oscar Wilde and others.
