Article in The Advocate cites Bureau’s “small but magnificently curated inventory,” 1/11/17

 

“Between The Lines With Bookish Lesbians,” by June Thomas appeared online and in print in The Advocate, January 11 2017
 
Check out this article on the importance of feminist and queer bookstores on The Advocate magazine’s website. June Thomas discusses the bookish themes in Lucy Jane Bledsoe’s recent novel, A Thin Bright Line (Bledsoe will read at the Bureau with Sarah Schulman on Feb. 12), and gives the Bureau a fabulous shout out: “In New York, the small but magnificently curated inventory at the Bureau of General Services — Queer Division, which operates out of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, is filled with lifesaving and life-changing volumes. And these days, physical spaces are more precious than ever.” Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center also gets some love: “It’s the kind of eclectic, activist space where the pioneers of feminist and LGBT bookselling would feel right at home.” Yeah feminist queer bookstores!
