Author's Note: Today I'm sharing a special guest post written by my close friend Jearld Moldenhauer. It's a Background Statement on his motivations for opening Glad Day Boston, a gay bookshop that was a cornerstone of queer cultural life in that city for many years. Jearld also founded the original Glad Day Bookshop in Toronto, the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, and several activist organizations that formed the core of Canada's gay liberation movement. These days he runs a photography gallery, Dar Balmira, in Fes, Morocco.
Jearld has a website showcasing his photography, which you can Visit Here. You can also find the statement below on his website.
