!! OMG, how exciting: Glad Day Bookshop is moving !!


Glad Day Bookshop, the world’s oldest LGBTQ bookstore, is reinventing itself as a cafe/bar/bookstore/community space in a fabulous location right on Church Street in the heart of Toronto’s gay village, and they need some help.

Perhaps you’ve purchased some literature, zines, or vintage erotica from Glad Day’s online shop, or maybe you’ve been in the Toronto store.

But if Glad Day is new to you, let us be the first to tell you it is an important institution in Toronto, but also for our community worldwide. Glad Day is one of the few bookshops that is not only still around, but thriving.


Their book sales are up, which counters the general trend of bookshops in the age of Amazon, but transitioning the business to a larger, better-situated space takes some extra cash. Please consider chipping in a few dollars to help them grow. Donate to their Indiegogo campaign here.

Or just buy a book (or graphic novel, or sexy gay novel, or sexy lesbian novel, or sexy photobook or comic).

!! OMG, a contest: ‘Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful?’ by Kenneth Walsh !!

!! omg blog !! buddy Kenneth Walsh (of Kenneth in the 212) has published his memoir Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful?, and we’re happy to be giving away copies to three lucky readers.

In this funny and moving memoir, Walsh recounts an idiosyncratic childhood that included an attempt to track down a crazed serial killer, a First Amendment battle with his fourth-grade principal, running the local KKK (that’s Kenny’s Kid Kare) babysitting service — and the mysterious disappearance of his father.

Post-college jobs took him to Hollywood and Washington, D.C. — where trouble followed (adult film stars, celebrity doppelgängers, anxiety disorders) — yet he still didn’t feel at home. Walsh finally arrived in Manhattan the week of his thirty-first birthday … but was tomorrow as wonderful as he dreamed it would be?

Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful? is available for purchase on Amazon.
THE CONTEST: What is the name of the adult film star that Kenneth unknowingly lived with in Los Angeles? (Hint: we’ve provided a photo after the jump)
THE RULES: Please email your contest entry along with your full name, North American shipping address, and telephone number to [email protected]. All personal information is collected in accordance with our privacy policy.
The first three correct responses submitted will win a copy of Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful?! The winners will be announced on our Facebook page next week.

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, get it: ‘The Island After’ !!

Former !! omg blog !! editor Bmad has another life as an author of books, and his latest one, The Island After, is available for a really short time for FREE on Barnesandnoble.com. Download it here!

A haunting novella by the author of SEPTEMBER GIRLS (HarperCollins) about recovering reality TV stars and the strange afterlife they enter once the cameras are gone. THE ISLAND AFTER focuses on Jake and Tanzy, friends and sometimes-lovers who competed together on an early season of a Survivor-esque show called The Island and have since struggled to reclaim their lives. Both hilarious and profound, THE ISLAND AFTER explores the fuzzy borders of truth and Reality as well as the hidden costs of fame.
