From its inception, the bookshop has played a major role in making heard the voices of our community’s great writers: Tenessee Williams, Harvey Fierstein, Larry Kramer, Terrence McNally, Dorothy Alison, Rita Mae Brown, Michael Cunningham, Felice Picano, and Christopher Rice, to name just a few whose work has found a home at Oscar Wilde. Buit the bookstore9s political history is less well known...

Founded in 1967 in Greenwich Village by Craig Rodwell, an activist who would play a major role in the famed Stonewall Riots of 1969, the bookshop itself was a breakthrough.Intentionally located in a ground-floor storefront with a large plate glass window that allowed passersby to see directly in, the bookshop broke all conventions of the out-of-sight, out-of-mind way gays of the day had been forced to live.The community embraced the shop en masse and it quickly became the city’s first unofficial gay community center. It was in the bookshop’s small office that, in the summer of 1969, Rodwell planned the Christopher Street Liberation Day March.The march, held on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Riot as a reminder of what had been gained that night, was a huge success and quickly morphed into what is now the international annual celebration/protest called Pride.

The Bookshop is a landmark in the truest sense of the word.It has contributed and borne witness to the incredible change our community has experienced over the last forty years.On the evening of Monday, June 23rd, 2008, we will celebrate its legacy, and we hope you will join us.
