In addition to selling books and magazines that you can't find anywhere else, In Other Words hosts a slew of community events, like weekly yoga, feminist films and Dirty Queer, an X-rated open mic night. It's worth saving, if only for that. Even if you don't live in Portland. don't you want to support a bookstore with a dirty open mic night?
Lipstick & I had a great reading there in February with fellow queer writers Diane and Jacob Anderson-Minshall and Gabrielle Goldsby.
