Founded in 1990 by David Rimmer, After Stonewall has for years been Ottawa's only LGBT bookstore, serving for 22 years as both a literary and cultural centre. However, book sales have recently been dropping due, says Rimmer, to sales of ebooks and the rise of Amazon.com. Rimmer has therefore decided to put the bookstore up for sale. Whether the new owners will relaunch the store or close it down remains to be seen. More details are available here.
