October 5, 2013

Beloved Atlanta, Georgia based feminist bookstore Charis Books was the target of anti-LGBT bias on Thursday, October 3rd, on the heels of Atlanta’s Annual Pride Festival.

The GA Voice reports:

One of the oldest feminist bookstores in the nation was hit with anti-gay graffiti the night it held a standing room only literary event as part of its “Stride into Pride” for Atlanta Pride activities.

Lesbian-owned Charis Books & More, which turns 39 in November and is one of the last remaining feminist bookstores in North America, had anti-gay and anti-women graffiti spray painted on the side of its building Thursday night after a successful literary event, “Stride Into Pride: Atlanta Literary All Star Showcase.”
