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.
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.

!! 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 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.
