Ed Hermance on The Virtual Memories Show

Ed Hermance, owner of Giovanni's Room, the one of the first queer bookstores in America, recorded a segment on The Virtual Memories Show in February. As the store celebrates its 40th anniversary, Ed & I talked about the evolution of gay culture in America, the history of the store and its role as a safe space, how queer lit has exploded over the years, how tough it is to keep track of all the GLBT-associated acronyms, the difficulties of running a bookstore in The Amazon Age, and more!
