About Category Is Books
🌈Category Is Books is a new, fiercely independent Queer Bookshop in the southside of Glasgow. 🌈
Started by wife and wife team, Charlotte and Fi Duffy-Scott, we hope to create a space for the LGBTQIA+ community and our allies to learn about, be inspired by and share in our love of queer history, culture, writing and storytelling.
As two lesbians that grew up under Section 28, it wasn’t until later in life that we started to explore our own queer history and culture in more depth - discovering in the process an expansive world of books, magazines, comics, zines, films and art, created by or with the LGBTQ community that give us nothing short of LIFE! ✨ 📚✨
We were delighted to find a shop just round the corner from our home in Govanhill and are spent a summer DIY-ing it up ourselves. The doors opened in September 2018.
