This page lists local gay bookstores. Store details can be found by following the links in the listings. Bookmark this page. Detail pages for the various stores may move without notice.
These are the criteria for a store to be listed here:
The store must have a real-space, walk-in location where retail sales are made. It cannot be only a web or mail-order store.
The store must be self-identified as a Gay, Lesbian, or Gay & Lesbian store. This means no "bi-curious" stores, no "feminist store with a strong lesbian section," no "leather store with lots of gay books," no "gay-friendly" stores. The answer must be unambiguously "yes" to one of these questions: "Are you a gay store?" "Are you a lesbian store?" or "Are you a gay & lesbian store?"
The store must sell gay, lesbian, or gay & lesbian hardback books and trade paperbacks in the walk-in store. In other words, it cannot be a porn or video store with only pulp erotica and magazines. It may also sell videos or pulp porn or sexual gadgets or coffee, and it may even have booths in the back, but the real books have to be there.
Listings are free to stores that I believe are qualified, and cannot be bought otherwise.
Listings are provided as a public service. I cannot be responsible for errors or omissions or the timeliness of corrections or additions. I try to make this list as complete as possible, but I do not owe stores a listing.
Customers should verify the details of the listings and the nature of the businesses locally. Hours, locations, and the very existences of these businesses change frequently. Some of these businesses are more sexually oriented than others. Customers likely to be offended by that should make local inquiries.
As I must rely on reports from other people, stores are sometimes listed when they do not meet the criteria or remain listed when they no longer meet the criteria.
I am not compensated for and will not accept compensation for these listings. I am compensated for sales that are a result of clicking through advertising banners which may appear on these pages.
No connection between the listed store and the banner advertisers is intended and none should be inferred.
Please send corrections and additions that meet the criteria above to firstname.lastname@example.org.
