Lavender Menace

Queer Books Archive

Welcome to the Lavender Menace Queer Books Archive

Visit our friendly community archive to browse our growing collection of queer books! 

Our mission is to collect and conserve LGBTQ+ books, and preserve queer history. We have thousands of queer books in our archive, and we host a variety of events and book groups

We not only collect queer history, we are queer history! We go all the way back to 1976, when our co-founders Bob and Sigrid first started selling LGBTQ+ books.

Visit in person

You can visit us during our opening hours, every Tuesday and Thursday between 11am and 4pm. You can also join us every second and fourth Sunday between 2pm and 4pm for our Sunday Social Book Café.

Browse online

You can also browse our digital catalogue which lists all of the books in the archive.
