Five Recommended Gay Bookstores Around the World

Passport magazine surveys gay bookstores around the world, noting that "though diminished in number because of big box stores, Amazon, and assimilation into the mainstream, a handful of queer bookstores continue to do what they do best: offer up great gay literature and provide spaces for queer people to meet, mingle, and even crochet. Innovation and reinvention for a new era are hallmarks for these flaming phoenixes, aiming to thrive, not just survive, while maintaining the quirky edge that sets them apart from traditional literary outlets."

The story profiles Philly AIDS Thrift @ Giovanni's Room, Philadelphia, Pa.; Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto; Gingin Books in Taipei, Taiwan; the Bookshop Darlinghurst in Darlinghurst, Australia; and Voces en Tinta in Mexico City.
