Tell Amazon to create a "gay bookstore"

Upon recently inquiring at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com) about why there isn't a "gay bookstore," a place where all gay titles and bestsellers can be grouped together for a quick glance, Amazon indicated that it was being considered, but that customers should write a letter to feedback@amazon.com and tell them why they want such a thing -- they particularly indicated that every letter would help.

Although we don't endorse or recommend any commercial services or products as a standard course of our operation, we do believe there is an opportunity here to help provide an important "queer space" at the world's largest Internet reseller of books, and that having this space would be an important addition to the resources for our community. Therefore, we encourage all Amazon shoppers to take a moment and ask the company to create such an area.
