Earlier this year, I wrote a quick post about the demise of LGBT bookstores after reading Queerty’s article,The Last Chapter: A Look At LGBT Bookstores Around the World.
Not too long ago most large cities had a collection of LGBT bookstores, but over the years, most of these have closed. Truth be told, I’m not much of a shopper, but I’ve always enjoyed nosing around a neighborhood bookstore and have visited a few of the places featured in the article.
After my initial post, several people made suggestions to the list of LGBT bookstores still in operation. I wanted to give Boston’s Calamus Books a shout out and promote those remaining stores that serve our community. If you live in one of these towns or plan on visiting – consider showing your support and making your next purchase of books, cards, DVDs or magazines there.
LGBT bookstores listed by city:
Amsterdam – Vrolijk Ann Arbor – Common Language Bookstore Atlanta – Outwrite Boston – Calamus Books Chicago – Unabridged Bookstore London – Gay’s the word Melbourne – Hares & Hyenas Paris – Les Mots a la Bouche Philadelphia – Giovanni’s Room Provincetown – Now Voyager Bookstore Sydney – The Bookshop Vancouver – Little Sisters
