Join us for our first event of 2024, Crip Café, a space for disabled and queer folks to gather and connect after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Hosted at Glad Day Bookshop on Saturday, March 9 at 8 PM, this relaxed event will feature live performances including music, poetry, comedy, and spoken word.

Glad Day Bookshop is the oldest 2SLGBTQIA+ bookstore in the world, and we couldn’t be more excited to create a safe and inclusive space for queer and disabled folks in our community at Crip Café!
