After being open for three decades in Kerrytown’s Braun Court, the beloved Common Language bookstore is closing its doors due to the owners’ retirement and a changing market. The LGBT bookstore is known for its inclusive atmosphere and for being an outlet for people to discover stories that speak to their experience. Owners Keith Orr and Martin Contreras point out that their store is one of only 10 remaining LBGT bookstores in the U.S. and Canada, likely due to readers increasing gravitation toward buying online. Common Language will close its doors at the end of the year.
