Glad Day Bookshop was created in 1970. This makes it not only the world’s oldest surviving LGBTQ bookstore but also Toronto’s oldest surviving bookstore. They believe they have the largest collection of LGBTQ titles in the world. Story, representation and freedom of speech are critical elements of queer & trans culture and identity – their bookstore is an important place that supports, nurtures, and inspires creativity and community.
This new location and model is a flexible, inclusive space that is being used by the diverse LGBTQ communities of Toronto to amplify creativity, story, sexuality, liberation and love.
Visit them all weekend.
