Gay bookstore closes in Atlanta

Back in my PageOneQ days, I’d link to a story about a gay bookstore closing every one or two months. It’s sad, it’s a product mostly of changing technology and market forces (I refuse the “gay community is dying” explanations when all indy bookstores and even some big chains are struggling), and a sign that the information age is killing off certain liberal institutions.

Whether that means that the explosion of information technology is inherently conservative or liberal is another big question, but let’s not pretend it’s bringing the world all together to sing.
