Outwrite bookstore, one of Atlanta‚Äôs literary landmarks for gays and lesbians, is moving from it’s current location after eighteen years of servicing the community. Phillip Rafshoon, the caf√© and bookstore‚Äôs owner, cited increasing rent prices and a change in demographics as two reasons for the¬† move. Rafshoon is currently looking for a new location for Outwrite in the Atlanta area. Larry Doyle, a store customer for fifteen years, told Atlanta Progressive News:
“Places matter more than people think. People say, oh, it’s just a store, it’s just a house…oh it’s all on the Internet now. ¬†But places do matter. What other gay location is there like this? ¬†What kind of hangout spot? ¬†There’s this. There’s gay bars. ¬†I don’t want to hang out in a bar all the time.‚ÄĚ [AtlantaProgressiveNews]
