Warm and Safe Environment
After Stonewall is a friendly locally-owned bookstore catering to the GLBT community of Ottawa. Framed by stone pillars on its Bank Street storefront, the store has a tasteful and professional look keeping with the attitude the owner maintains towards the world of GLBT literature. Inside the store, the many shelves filled with books, tables of featured writings and walls covered with contemporary art give visitors a comfortable feeling of being in a cozy niche bookstore rather than a branch of a large commercial chain. Asking the owner of the store for advice will surely land you a couple of good reads in your hands.
