Are You Going to Let Nation’s Oldest Gay Bookstore Collapse On Itself?


The world’s oldest gay bookstore that is not Barnes & Noble (’cause really, how many times have you cruised those aisles?) is facing imminent demise unless it can raise $50k to rebuild a brick wall that, according to Giovanni’s Room owner Ed Hermance in Philadelphia, is about to fall down and destroy Merv Griffin’s biography!

NB: Does Giovanni’s Room get to claim the “oldest gay bookstore” superlative only because the Oscar Wilde Bookshop in NYC closed?
