Welcome to Common Language Bookstore

Common Language Bookstore Website

We are one of only a dozen LGBT-identified and 18 Feminist-identified bookstores in the U.S. and Canada. There used to be hundreds. If you do live in or near one of those rare bookstores, by all means, support them.

If you are not in one of those few lucky towns, you can still support an independent Feminist/LGBT Bookstore through this website.

Through this site, you can order nearly any book direct from us! This is the best way for you to buy new books online while supporting a local queer business! Thank you for supporting Common Language!
