Authors campaign to save Britain's only gay bookshop

Authors are campaigning to save the UK's only dedicated gay and lesbian bookshop, threatened with closure because of rising rents and pressure from the internet. Gay's The Word, which has been selling books in Bloomsbury, central London, since 1979, is hoping to secure its future by raising 20,000 to pay the rent, building a strong internet presence and beefing up community activities.
