I've been a longtime patron of this cute, legendary institution of a bookshop in Toronto.
I'm also good friends with some people who have made their living or helped run the indie bookstore in recent years.
Now the world's oldest LGBTQ bookstore needs funds to help finance a move to a new, accessible, and adaptable space. Currently, it's on the second floor of a small location on Yonge Street, just north of Wellesley (where it's been since 1970.) Owners have found a new place on Church Street that's accessible and will allow for new revenue streams like food and drink.
But they need financing to help make the move happen. So they launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign recently to engage community support. The idea is awesome so I was happy yesterday to donate some money.
It's Pride Week! I highly encourage everyone to give this great campaign some financial support.
