Bailey/Coy Books closing at the end of November. Details are here.
Bailey/Coy Books opened on Broadway back in 1983…
…specifically designed to welcome a lesbian and gay clientele…a store where the best in general literature existed side by side with the best in lesbian and gay books. Today that seems like a fairly pedestrian idea, but in 1982 it was nothing short of revolutionary.
It’s a similar theme that is being repeated all over the country, the local indepedent gay bookstore closes down, but it really hurts so much when it happens so close to home. Throughout much of the 80’s and 90’s, Bailey/Coy represented a very important life transition for many gay people in Seattle.
Starting this week, everything in the store is marked down 20 percent. Gift certificates and redeemable book cards will be accepted until the final closing date, at the end of November.
