Very Sad News

Giovanni’s Room

—nation’s oldest surviving LGBT bookstore, to close!

I was only in it once but I remember it as being the nicest space of any of the gay bookstores. And they always were more than bookstores. They were vital community centers as anyone who lived in a city with one knew.

Please commemorate with your comments.

(Thanks to Tom for "breaking" this story.)

I went to a lot of readings at Giovanni's Room.

See Steve Berman's article in Salon (above) for, among other things, an extended reminiscence of this fine bookstore.
