  • This bookstore is amazing and an amazing piece of queer history! The walls are covered in posters so make sure to not just look at the shelves. The sheer quantity of books and the variety was amazing....  more »

  • We received a friendly welcome and found a couple of books to keep our minds ticking over on holidays. Great to see Christos Tsiolkas latest book on the new and recommended display. Don't miss this great shop if you are in Bloomsbury.
  • Great choice of cards, books, plays and gay history. Although they're currently sold out of the excellent play, All the Bens by Manchester writer Ian Townsend. This place is as important to London as the Stonewall bar is to New York. Well worth a visit, very helpful staff, I'll be back the next time I am in London.
