Lesbians, my fellow Gay Men, Transgendered folks, Bisexuals, and our straight allies, here is the latest on Giovanni’s Room. I received this Email this past Friday, June 6, 2014, 4:48PM.
Interestingly enough, it is the shortest update to date.
Here we go…
We are still expecting to know by June 15 if the group considering buying the store is going to do so. There is yet another possibility of selling the business, but we know very little about these potential buyers.
In case you missed Stephen Colbert’s broadside at Amazon last night, click here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/05/colbert-amazon-hachette_n_5453714.html Mr. Attorney General Holder, when do you apply the anti-trust laws?
See you at the Philly Dyke March tomorrow [Saturday, June 7, 2014], 3-6pm, starting at Kahn Park, 11th and Pine, and at the Pride Parade on Sunday [today, Sunday, June 8, 2014].
Ladies and gentlemen, blog followers and readers, may all the Gods keep this store open!
As someone who is not only a fan of independent booksellers, but also the fact that I happen to love Giovanni’s Room (the only remaining LGBT bookstore in this country), as well as the Center City section of Philadelphia, I would LOVE for this store to remain open. Or, rather, reopen.
Since Giovanni’s Room kept their most recent update short and sweet, I shall keep this post short and sweet, too.
