‘Everyone is welcome’ at Shelf Lovers

LGBTQIA+ bookstore Shelf Lovers opened earlier in the year in Wooloowin.

The team hope that the Drag Storytime events become a monthly draw for the bookstore.

Shelf Lovers also host other events including book circles for both teenage and adult readers.

Owner Kat said the team want to create a safe space and sense of community for readers as well as help them find LGBTQIA+ and romance-themed books in one place.

“When establishing the store, it was very important to us that Shelf Lovers be a safe space where everyone’s welcome,” owner Kat explained.

Earlier this month, the bookstore had their first author event, with Christian Wilkins reading his new picture book Princess Mitchell to the kids.
