Happy (Upcoming) Independent Bookstore Day!

As you may know, Independent Bookstore Day was rescheduled this year, but no matter the date, there’s been no year in which it’s more important to show whatever support you can. Behold, here are a bunch of wonderful indies that show great support to queer books, each with a little recommended list of books to buy from them!

This year, with the advent of Bookshop, some of these stores have shifted their ordering over there, so this will be a little hodgepodge, but what else would you expect of 2020?
